Rock Da Casbah


Three sets with Spaghetti Eastern Music, the genre-leaping solo project of Saugerties-based guitarist/keyboardist Sal Cataldi. In Spaghetti Eastern, Cataldi marries acid jazz-fueled guitar instrumentals and ambient soundscapes a la Fripp and Eno with bare-bones acoustic ballads and folktronica out of the Nick Drake/John Martyn school.  The New York Times says Cataldi “has a beat unmistakably his own” while Time Out New York praises his “the delicate guitar work and the hauntingly moody atmosphere he conjures.” Called “truly excellent” by The Village Voice, “beautiful and unique” by WFUV’s Mixed Bag and “charmingly melodic and off-center” by WFMU.  Hudson Valley One has called Spaghetti Eastern: “Part Sergio Leone fever dream, part Ravi Shankar raga, a whirling dervish of musical creation.” Chronogram Magazine called his most recent release, the exploratory solo guitar score for the dance piece 2x2x4,“cool, melodic, inspired and transcendent, a wave of sonic warmth and light” while Psychedelic Baby Magazine calls it “the perfect sonic tonic for these trouble times.”  Listen here at Spotify and
