Jack DeSalvo initially appeared on the international jazz scene with thegroundbreaking trio D3 and as a member of the electric harmolodic group Ronald Shannon Jackson and the Decoding Society. The legendary recording Red Warrior (Knit Classics KCR-3032/orig. Axiom) stems from that time with Jack playing electric and slide guitar as well as mandolin Soon after came Transparencies (Bellaphon CDLR-45057) with Karl Berger on vibes, piano and balafon, Jack on electric, 12-string and classical guitars, Anthony Cox on double-bass and Tom Tedesco on drums and percussion.531117_404627716275723_615992056_n

The first album from D3, Spontaneous Combustion (Enja/Tutu CD-888126), with Jack on electric guitar, Tony DeCicco on double-bass and Bruce Ditmas on drums, is a classic record of fiery improvisation.

Liquide Stones (Enja/Tutu CD-888132), the duo recording from DeSalvo and vibist Arthur Lipner, received enthusiastic reviews on both sides of the Atlantic:
“Using both acoustic and electric instruments, DeSalvo demonstrates technique, intelligence and imagination with a broad streak of lyricism and passion in what amounts to one of the better guitar voices to be heard in improvised music these days.” – Cadence
“Guitar and vibraphones in a thrilling duo recital with timeless, inflammable ideas. Thus warm ballads burgeon beside provoking, avant-garde sound plasma, forming their own integrated musical system of co-ordination.” -Rainer Guerich, CD Tips, Germany

Jack DeSalvo currently records for the UNSEEN RAIN Record label.
