CD submissions accepted! Guest writers always welcome!!

I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

The Healer (Jam)- Frank Solari and Alex Martinho


Frank Solari was born in Porto Alegre, Brazil. Since 1988 he had been highly regarded by the critics. This reputation helped get him the opportunity to audition to open BOB DYLAN’s concerts, as well as play with the drummer BILLY COBHAM and share the stage with the guitarist STANLEY JORDAN. Solari received from this legends musician’s approval and respect back.

Alex started playing at the age of 13. He learned from books, videos and private lessons. One year later, he put a band together, which played a great deal and became really famous in the Rio de Janeiro area, doing hard rock cover tunes. In September, 1991, Alex went to Hollywood, California, where he studied at the Musicians Institute - GIT. There, he formed a "power trio" and started working on his instrumental tunes, playing several times in and outside school, with great success. Alex graduated with "honors" in September '92, recorded a demo, sent it to record labels and producers, and then went back to Brazil in 1993. A few months later, after some concerts and guitar seminars he had held in Brazil, he was signed to an independent label from Rio de Janeiro, called Niteroi Discos, and his self-titled debut CD came out in September '94.
