Album Notes
"Purpose. Direction. Intent. Tom Salvatori's talent is interpreting our life and times with acoustically presented awareness. A minimalist in that Tom isn't flailing away in wonder of his own identity; not because he lacks for talent, depth, or degree of difficulty. On the contrary, he exhibits strength in restraint, and intensity through the vivid power of mindfulness he presents in his compositions. Salvatori layers his instrumentals with a beautiful variety of fingerstyle techniques, orchestrated to define each work as needed." - Artguitect Radio, June, 2000

'Under Cover of Darkness' - 30 minutes in length. ADD. Released summer, 1995. This CD represents the long awaited 1st release recorded in the very livingroom of Tom's own home. Legend has it that, with all else planned (furniture moved out, wife and kids gone for the weekend, snifter of Amaretto Di Saronno at hand, microphones in place, guitar tuned...) the last remaining issue to be dealt with was ultimately the most obvious....the weather.

A storm front moved in...and thunder and lightning chose to ruin several of early takes.

That is, until Tom made one of those split second decisions that results in a long standing impact on his inaugural release.

He decided to embrace the enemy. He decided to weave the thunderstorm into his guitar work that night. He hung a couple microphones outside the bay windows and proceeded to communicate with the forces of nature.

The rest, as legend has it, is history. Seminal releases will never be the same!

Under Cover of Darkness
I was loking for lullaby music for my kindergarten students and and happened upon Salvatori's music I puchased this one and another and I am thrilled. However the cd's ended up in my bedroom, where my huband and I enjoy them every night! I'll keep looking for the kindergarten music!

great stuff! i loves me some rain!
i was thrilled to discover this recording, as i have always been a major fan of rain. even as a pre-teen, i would get sound effects of thunderstorms and play those tapes at the same time i played my favorite music. many times, i'd have a double tape deck player, in one would be Sade and in the other deck would be Thundering Rainstorm.
i was thrilled to find this CD. not only is it lovely and acoustic guitar music, but it's accompanied by a REAL thunderstorm. and the story behind this recording session is wonderful as well. great "executive decision" Tom!
