Late Nights At Desert's Rimrock


Alex Masi

Year released



Alex Masi continues his rich musical journey with Late Nights At Desert's Rimrock. The album also features his MCM bandmate and drummer John Macaluso (Yngwie Malmsteen, Ark). The CD resulted from some informal raw jams between Masi and Macaluso. These jams saw Masi start on bass guitar playing to grooves laid down by Macaluso with no preconceived ideas, plans or melody with spontaneity being the main motivator. Late Nights At Desert's Rimrock is a wild musical ride with no specific goal other than "music" itself. The title may conjure up images of irrational, rabid, hallucinogenic, exploring drumming and guitar playing and this is indeed how Alex Masi himself describes the music. Masi's primary influence for the music was the universe itself, stating, "Every piece is a universe in itself... the influence is the desert... my love of the desert... my love of solitude... my trips around various deserts and the imaginary and actual encounters... altered mental states." Fans of Masi's guitar work will revel in the musicianship - the album is not meant to satisfy any one specific fetish but many fetishes combined - listen to it as if your government would not want you to do it!
