Tom Salvatori (Composer, Solo Classical Guitar) accompanied by a Lombard, IL thunderstorm

Seven original instrumental solo guitar compositions, plus two arranged pieces that cover some very diverse ground…They Might Be Giants’ “Hide Away Folk Family” and a medley of Nino Rota's themes from “The Godfather.” Recorded along with the sounds of a thunderstorm. Soothing, brooding and melodic; geared for very late night listening.

'Under Cover of Darkness' Released summer, 1995. This CD represents the long awaited 1st release recorded in the very living room 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!
