  • Half way between Greg Howe and Wayne Krantz is Italian guitarist Rocco Zifarelli. Born in 1967 South Eastern Italy, Rocco is mostly known for the metallic sound and use of effects of his electric guitar but Zifarelli is a versatile artist, playing with the same ease the Mandoline or classical guitar. There is a great video on YouTube of Rocco’s interpretation of Donald Fagen “Maxine” on a nylon strings guitar, showing his wide range of musical interests.
Over the years, Rocco Zifarelli worked with many musicians from all genres, film scorer Ennio Morricone, Paul McCandless (Oregon), Bob Mintzer (Yellow Jackets), Joe Bowie (Defunkt). He is also an educator, teaching guitar playing in contemporary music.
While his discography as a guest is very large, Rocco never found the time to record more than a couple of albums under his own name. “Lyndon” his most popular, released in 1998 is the fruit of his association with drummer Paco Sery and bassist Matthew Garrison as well as few premier Italian musicians: Stefano di Battista, Pipo Matino, Agostino Marangolo and Giovanni Imparato.
The cut is “Sierra Nevada”. Giovanni Imparato is on percussion, Sergio Vitale and Giovanni Amato on trumpet, Claudio Colasazza on electric piano, Simone Salsa, Dario Cecchini and Sandro Deidda on saxophone and Giancarlo Giannini (not the actor) on trombone.
Lyndon is quite difficult to find in North America, you may need to order it in Europe. The version of Pastorius “Havona” is really worth it with a Matthew Garrison on fire at the bass.
