Album Notes
Electric Roots, the debut album by guitarist Nicola Costa, is an all original and instrumental guitar record. The ten tracks comprising Electric Roots include a mix ranging from blues to rock to electric jazz. Superb compositions full of depth, power and melody with tons of soulful bluesy feel. Highly recommended to fans of JIMI HENDRIX, JEFF BECK, MICHAEL LANDAU, SCOTT HENDERSON, ROBBEN FORD. If you heavily dig awesome, deep, bluesy heavy guitar riffage, the "Electric Roots" by Nicola Costa is just what you're looking for.

Electric Roots was written, produced and mixed by Nicola and mastered by Joe Gastwirt (Jimi Hendrix, Paul McCarteny)

"Costa is an extremely gifted guitarist who offers 10 tracks of original and extremely diverse instrumentals on this CD. He is all over the board style and sound wise, which adds much to the charm of this recording......."Electric Roots" is truly a remarkable recording by an artist who has such a bright future ahead of him. I am considering this a "must own" recording for anyone who likes great blues, blues/rock, or jazz guitar work or just plain good music in general".
Tom Branson/ Bluesrockers

"Nicola Costa is an outstanding, world-class player who stands tall with the best of them. The bluesy-fusion direction/vibe grooves hard and his liquid organic tones are authentic/pure. The heavy Michael Landau inspiration on "Little Boy Blues" shines deep. Costa & his people did a excellent job on the rather superb "Electric Roots" disc".
Joe Romagnola / Grooveyard Records

All songs are written by Nicola, and it starts out with a song which reminds of "Left Turn" by Jeff Beck and is somewhat along the line of "Scatterbrain".
On "The bridge" we hear tight funky beats on which Nicola plays the most wonderfull plays guitar solo with Beck as a large example.
Right after that we get blues, which can be compared best with the layed back Hendrix and SRV songs, in "Little Boy Blues" with a nice hammond organ passage of Ettore Gentile... Also still a song where a considerable portion of blues is "Blue Day" a song in Scott Henderson style. Virtuoso!
"Get On Dreamin" has not stolen its name, a thoughtful number with elements of (yes) Jeff Beck and Stevie Ray Vaughan mixed. Still worth mentioning is "Burning Night" a number song that seems along the lines of the work of Gov't Mule and where the typical Beck sound is audible again during the solos.The cd ends with a song called "Goodbye B", a jazzy song with great tone and talent. We were extremely surprised by this artist who brings qualitatively high standard music. Nicola Costa, is a name to remember!

Electric Roots
This is a great instrumental guitar record .The songs are full of ideas and surprising playing .
I am really happy to discover this guitar player.


Electric Roots
Burning guitar tones, awesome playing and great tunes... what else could you want in an instrumental guitar record.
This is now one of my favorite guitar cds and I just got it. Easily ranks up there with some great player and even surpasses some. Michael Landau, Allen Hinds, Greg Howe etc. Buy it if you like these guys.


It's All Good!
I have had this album for 2 years and I am hoping for something new from Mr. Costa. Both of his albums are keepers. They're great! His guitar really does have a Landau,/Beck/Ford/Lukather vibe to it in terms of skill, tone, and composition. And the recording is top-notch with a full, rich sound. Drums are heard clearly and the low end thumps. I am very pleased with the consistency of what this man does with hi instrument. So good!


Electric Roots
Very good instrumental blues/fusion CD.
Recomended for people who like Micheal Landau and Scott Henderson.
