ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Mike Caputo first gained attention as the guitarist for the progressive rock band Mind Sky. Their debut release "Timewise" was very well received by the public and Mike was featured in Guitar Player magazine. Described as "the quintessential progressive guitarist, demonstrating a command of textural elements, acoustic guitar technique, and a melodic lead style utilizing impressive legato phrasing", Mike quickly emerged as a versatile artist whose style appealed to a wide audience.

"Mosaic" is Mike's first solo release featuring all acoustic material. His acoustic style has been compared to Michael Hedges and Alex DeGrassi; one track on "Mosaic" was written in tribute to Michael Hedges and features techniques popularized by Hedges. Having studied classical guitar for many years, Mike fuses this formal training with his own compositional style to create works that are both melodically pleasing, yet technically challenging. Fans of fingerstyle and classical guitar will be thoroughly impressed with the depth of the playing and compositional skills. Fernando Sor's "Fantasy" is the only non-original work on the album.

Mike's skill as a guitarist is reflected by his use of odd time signatures, heartfelt melodies, and technical mastery. "Mosaic" offers listeners a variety of songs that create a larger picture, that is easy to listen to while still retaining a high caliber of musicianship.

Pure talent & heart !
Mike is a genius... but that you can easilly see for yourself on the first time you listen to "Mosaic". Infinitely heavy loads of skill combined with a serious foundation of musicality and sensibility create the "Mosaic" of sounds, images, colors and places architected by Mike. "A Moment's Peace" has always had a special place in my heart, with all of it's Baroque flavors and super strong melodies. My new "other favorite" is "Chasing Butterflies". What a great piece of music and a beautiful tribute to his kids! Last but not least, let me say that "Hedgework" will play with your head. Intriguing, metallic, provocative... Before you notice, the piece will be in your brain, asking to be played again.
Fantastic work, Mr. Caputo! Scientifically speaking: WOW!
