Ghost Town is a powerful opening tune, where the bandleader interweaves expressive voice leading, pungent chords, and crystalline harmonics with unflinching confidence. Following a clearly pronounced bass solo, Rosario plunges into a distorted metal-like spiral, whose broad dirty sound evolves until reaching the tidal chordal washes that conclude the piece." —Filipe Freitas, JazzTrail Writer

"Guitarist Javier Rosario goes both electric and acoustic on this muscular and musical collection of originals in a trio format with drummer Zak King and bassist Scott Kiefner. As palpable as Rosario’s tone is while plugged in for the trio format, his solo material is tender and patient. The combination of assertive trio and impressionistic unplugged moments makes for rewarding listening for jazz guitar fans and aficionados." —George W. Harris, editor at Jazz Weekly

At the end of 2017, Javier made a record with pianist, Matt Savage and his newest band, Groove Experiment. A year later, Splash Variations was released. Enjoy the video promotion and get yourself a copy of this wonderful record! Javier plays specifically on tracks 2, 3 & 6.
