Blues Saraceno was one of the better late eighties/early nineties US guitarists in a rock scene that was saturated with "me too" speed freaks that all sounded the same. Unfortunately we can't find any information about him in the reference books we have, a minor irritation that will no doubt be solved by J apie, but the three albums we know of by this talented chap all have their moments. If you enjoy guitarists as diverse as Gary Hoey, Marc Bonilla and Eric Johnson, you'll probably love Blues Saraceno. You may not be able to find his albums too easily, but it's worth making the effort. And no, he's not a blues player, well, at least, not on the albums we have of him, at any rate!
