Album Notes
"I want my music to convey emotional spirit, and strive for an interaction between listener and composer."

"...exhibiting a variety of sounds, styles, and effects... . I'm not exaggerating when I say he has in his playing elements of styles as diverse as those of Frisell, Scofield, Abercrombie and Burrell."
Kim Richmond, Jazz Player Magazine

"Like a chameleon that adapts to its surroundings, guitarist Tim Volpicella identifies with a host of musical styles that range from ethereal soundscapes to blazing jazz rock jaunts."
Chris Cortez, Midday Jazz, KCSM-FM, San Mateo, CA

"Tim Volpicella has drawn on diverse influences... .
He has fashioned a compelling and original voice on the guitar... "
John Stowell, jazz guitarist

Elizabeth Chapin

Great compositions that range from beautiful, poignant, and soulful to driving.
"Great compositions that range from beautiful, poignant, and soulful to driving and passionate filled with tension. Much like a great painting, novel, or even film, they not only tell a story but also take you along for the ride. On top of all this he has forged himself a unique guitar style that has a heritage in the great modern guitarists (Frisell, Abercrombie, Scofield, Holdsworth) the foundation of the older masters (Jim Hall, Joe Pass) yet is not afraid to move on. There are elements of many styles present, but in the same way that Jazz, Rock, Classical, Afro-Cuban, Calypso and Reggae all contain influences of other styles. In the end, this is not Jazz. It is not Rock. It is definitely not Fusion. It is rare that you find music that has the depth, complexity and nuance of established idioms yet simultaneously defies all current labels, Volpicella's music does just that."
