I never heard of Neil Rambaldi until I got his latest CD to review. Too bad for me because I'm very much impressed by what I hear on A Call To The Wild

About 60% of the tracks on this excellent album I would describe as instrumental Blues Rock. Obviously Rambaldi is a great guitar player that can shred with lightning speed, but he does not use his music as a vehicule that allows him to showcase his technical habilities. His emphasis is more on the melody not just on prowess. References can be made with great Blues Rock guitarists like Joe Bonamassa, Jeff Beck or Stevie Ray Vaughan but his playing style is quite unique. One thing that really got me hooked on A Call To The Wild is that Rambaldi inserts a good number of pieces in a ''Non Blues Rock'' style; Latin Rock, Spanish guitar... and he even sings (very well) on one track. Luckily he manages to do this without breaking the general mood of his album.

If you are into instrumental Blues Rock+ or some of the artist I listed in this review, Neil Rambaldi is certainly someone you should seek out. A Call To The Wild is an excellent album that is good from beginning to end. Highly recommended indeed.
