“Berardi's guitar is a soaring, swooping, melodious jet turbine of an instrument, owing as much perhaps to Jimi Hendrix as to any jazz guitarist.... with Berardi bringing a radioactive shimmer of brash spirituality....” - Dan McClenaghan allaboutjazz.com
This 1996 Studio session shines a long awaited light on this under-recorded, highly original guitarist. Includes six compositions by Berardi, two by Esposito and “My Favorite Things” by Richard Rodgers. An unusual mix of quintet pieces and duets, including several incandescent guitar/drums explorations.
Recorded at Nevessa Studio. Woodstock, NY by Ted Orr and remastered by Scott Petito at NRS Studio, Catskill, NY in 2008.
