Sal Cataldi's Spaghetti Eastern MusicSpecial Effects Performances by…Spaghetti Eastern Music  and MFM member is the solo project of NYC/Saugerties-based guitarist, keyboardist and singer Sal Cataldi. Cataldi fuses Eastern beat, blues, techno and funk-influenced guitar instrumentals with gentle acoustic vocal tunes and looping, straight out of the John Martyn/Nick Drake songbook. Time Out New York writes: “Cataldi’s largely instrumental, Eastern-influenced jams are infused with some delicate guitar work and hauntingly moody atmosphere,” while The New York Times proclaims Cataldi has “a beat unmistakably his own.” Called “truly excellent” by The Village Voice, “a wide ride” by Radio Woodstock, “beautiful ad unique” by WFUV’s Mixed Bag “triumphantly funkified” by UPI and “wonderfully melodic and off-center” by WFMU’s Irene Trudel. His critically-acclaimed new album “Sketches of Spam” is available on iTunes, CD Baby and more. With Kyle Rogers and Josh Wakesberg.
