Joe recently worked with Corey and also Garrett Whitlock (Mark Tremonti Project) on this 3 song EP with anticipation of writing more material for a full length release.

"TTR (Test Tube Rhino) is his project for launching selfish guitar madness. Lucky us. His liquid tone, melodic lines, and tendency to break out savage note flurries are delightful."

-Mike Molenda, Guitar Player

"His playing breathes the lyrical melodic phrasing of Joe Satriani with elements of Buckethead’s acoustic mastery and articulation of the brilliant Paul Gilbert. For guitar instrumental lovers, InVitro is everything you could ask for."

Alex Jasperse -

"The instrumental tracks veer from Steve Vai/ Joe Satriani speed shredding to Lenny Kravitz funky blues and rock to Jeff Beck Blow era jazz rock. "

Bob Silvestri -
Best of

"Rock guitar instrumentals that allow for plenty of solo space, multi-layered esoterica, melodic richness, over-the-top shred, liquid legato lines, torrid tapping - in short, an outlet for the "experimental and selfish side of my playing," as Pinnavaia describes it."

The Undiscovered -
Guitar 9 Records

"Test Tube Rhino is a killer project made up of killer tracks, killer writing and playing. Creative, diverse, interesting and gripping are all words I would use to describe this music."

Tom Hess - Tom Hess Music Corporation

"All instrumental, the sound is a pure sonic guitar feast in the timeless musical spirit of Robert Fripp and even Norwegian guitar god Terje Rypdal."

Robert Silverstein-
Music Web Express 3000

"...very reminiscent of a certain Mr Fripp and his adventurous freedom of note choice and relaxed approach do call to mind Joe Satriani – all simmeringly quite cosily together in the sort of controlled sonic gumbo that needs a little spice…..which of course he adds in the form of some blazing modern techno-fetish lines."

Robert Silverstein-
Music Web Express 3000

"As a one-man project, Test Tube Rhino could suffer from a lack of diversity – but it doesn’t. Understated numbers like “I’m Not Doing Anything to Feel Sorry” shows Joey P. has a deft touch with supple lead guitar figures."
