"Great little blues/rock album. Came outta nowhere and enjoyed ZERO publicity. Relegated to cut-out/throw away bin status...what a shame. This kid was an Ausie who really had IT. I understand he was extremely ill and not sure what ever became of him after this record. If you like Jonny Lange,Kenny Wayne Sheppard and the sort,you will certainly appreciate this record. Hes not exactly the shredder that those guys are but take it for what it is...this kid was like TWELVE years old when it came out. He was surrounded by a very solid group of players and the production value is excellent as well. The kid does a couple of tasty covers and the rest are well written by HIM. This is a great one to have! Throw it on and impress people with this hidden gem. Its a shame nothing more was heard from him."

"I must admit I was Incredulous when I first read the reviews about him. I thought surely they must be exaggerating. A twelve year old who can play the blues.....I mean really play. Beleive it. Its true, its true in spades! Im still flabbergasted at it. He is awesome in fact. It is not just me who thinks this. None other then Muddy Waters Thinks so and says he is one of the best ever. BB King says he is a prodigy. Mark knopfler says he is one of the most talented guitarists ever. They are not just blowing smoke either; no its true. The strange thing about his playing is it has a mature seasoned quality, very restrained for the most part but you can tell he's holding back, pulling his punches and saving it for just the right moment. Not what you would expect from a young musician. There are some very old musicians out there who have never developed this kind of maturity in their playing. Amazing!
We all buy albums expecting that there will only be a few songs on it we will like and the rest usually are fillers and are garbage....right? Not here, every song on this album is good to great. His talent goes beyond being just a technician, his playing is straight from the heart, like a real artists should be. He is more then just a performer, He wrote and arranged most of the music on this album and was intimately involved with its production. Yes there are other artists who do this, but most of them dont do all those things very well and none of them are 12 years old! Listen for yourself. I think you will be very impressed if you are a blues fan or a jazz fan. He kind of mixes it up on the last tune doing a kind of jazz/blues fusion. Very interesting stuff. You can usually get this album for very reasonable prices now at Amazon Z-Shops."

"Nathan Cavaleri is a young Australian boy who was diagnosed with cancer, he came to the medias attention when he got his wish of jamming with Mark Knofler during one of dire staits tours here.Nathan was taught guitar by his father from a very young age ( 3 years I think from meory). Following Nathans televised jam session with Mak Knofler he shot to clebrity status rapidly, travelling to the USA where he played backup and duo's with world renoun blues players such as muddy waters and others.Nathan also made guest appeances in television shows such as Baywatch.After returning to Australia and doing several interviews for television, Nathan returned to his home town in ? Western Australia. Since then then nothing has been heard of this remarkable young musician. One only hopes that Nathan's cancer went into remission and that he spent the pst several years concentrating on his education."
