Steve Calafati changes any current preconception about what the guitar is expected to do by combining his formidable artistry and compositional skills, with a moody, gorgeously realized return to its homeland, so to speak. In many ways Spain is the culture of guitars, and guitars, in any form, carry with them, that very Spanish provenance. It was only a matter of time, for a constantly evolving musician like Calafati to rediscover its heritage. In 1997, Steve began his study of flamenco with Master guitarist Enrique Vargas to improve his nylon string technique. "Little did I know the study of Flamenco would take over my entire musical life", Steve recalls. And so, into this endeavor went Calafati, a musician of the first order, who already knew the guitar quite well. Previous independent releases found Steve being showcased for his command of styles of guitar playing, as well as seeing the development of his overall musical concept. Calafati happens to be a tremendously gifted composer whose sense of balance and taste far outshines the narrow confines of the "instrumentalist/guitarist" genre. This man can write too! Steve's subsequent trips to the countries of the Mediterranean, where the sun, sea, architecture, food and life style influenced the development of his songs and sounds, constitute a pilgrimage of sorts. His new release, Mediterra, is the result.
