"Rag Tap Boom"
… his debut album “Rag Tap Boom” is a true jewel… Forastiere’s technique is an exquisite mélange between classical and modern, between tradition and innovation, just as his sources of artistic inspiration, ranging from Stravinsky to Zappa…Ezio Guaitamacchi – Jam
… Forastiere explores the different dimensions of acoustic composition, paying also close attention (fortunately) to the pleasure of listening… To improvisation, he prefers a strict and accurate notation, a personal choice that reflects his classical studies, along with his jazzy element and the brilliancy of the Brazilian music and also powerful rock influences… First-rate taste and refined emotional dynamics, emphasized by an excellent use of harmonics…Alessandro Stalti – Chitarre
…Forastiere’s guitar art is crystalline, we could even venture perfect: not a flaw, not an imperfection, no hesitation… 13 tracks that drew beautiful mosaics…Dave Electric – Accordo
A gifted new acoustic guitarist making waves out of Italy, Forastiere... recorded without overdubs or special effects, Rag Tap Boom is a fitting showcase for Forastiere’s superb acoustic guitar work.Robert Silverstein – 20th Century Guitar
