Album Notes
For the last few years, friend and musicians alike have been urging me to record a solo album. I kept saying, no one wants to hear a solo free form guitar record; most of them are noisemakers or repetitive or just plain boring. I held off for quite some time when I started to think about it.
My first question to myself was; how do I not make it boring and repetitive?
I decided to record one or two pieces a day. This way I could stay fresh in my playing. So each day, without warming up, I recorded two pieces.

My next question was; should it all be outside playing? Again, that could be boring too. I decided to record one outside piece and one inside tonal piece a day. There is no written music. This is sheer improvisation. What you hear is the results of three days of recording.

Gregor Applegate Edwards

Dom Minasi Crafts an Absorbing Solo Guitar Set on "Looking Out, Looking In"
"This is not music of a lightweight quality. It is a one-hour portrait of a guitar master as he existed in space and time on those several days in the studio. It is more a series of brilliant spontaneous sketches than it is a finished painting, Zen-like brushstrokes in sound to be savored, not an elaborately reworked painting with varnish, frame, spotlight and museum guard. It's improvisation after all. Improvisation of brilliance."

"Dom's personal and musical integrity is always a profound
inspiration, whether he chooses to play "inside" or "outside."
It's reveals yet another aspect of Dom Minasi's great
body of recorded work".

Solo improvisation may lack the frisson of excitement that comes from the sudden and
unexpected exchanges between musicians in an ensemble setting but Looking Out,
Looking In offers other pleasures. There may be a buzz in some of the music—there
certainly should be one about the music.
