“LATIN JAZZ WITH A ROCK EDGE, THE ULTIMATE IN COOL!” (Rotcod Zzaj - Improvijazzation Nation / Lacey, WA)
Victor Samalot’s solo guitar project began in 2010 after the permanent hiatus of his Jazz Rock Fusion group Rare Blend. Reinventing his sound and brand, Victor switched from electric to acoustic guitar and this time called upon his Latin roots but kept his fusion sensibilities by incorporating the fundamentals of Jazz and Rock. He also added looping technology to his gear expanding writing and soloing ideas.
Fresh and contemporary, Victor performs year round and continues to appeal to listeners of world fusion music. Some of Victor's guitar influences are Carlos Santana, Jeff Beck, Ottmar Liebert, Craig Chaquico, Jesse Cook, Phil Keaggy, Jose Feliciano, David Gilmour, and others...
A full-time musician, he books his own gigs, publishes his music, releases singles and albums, builds and maintain his own website, and does all his own publicity...
