Album Notes
Rare Blend's Cinefusion is an 8-song collection gelling rock/jazz fusion with an emotional soundtrack feeling inviting you for a ride to the musical gateway! Dynamic guitars courtesy of Vic Samalot and keyboard moods provided by Bobbi Holt are the cornerstones of this progressive, improvisational disc. Tracks such as the elegaic, hauntingly-moody "Black Rain" offer deep, sonorous keyboard textures topped with spry, passionate guitar. "Isabella" presents a DiMeola-style Latin guitar sound, while "Virtual Reality" is a sizzling concoction of relentless rhythm and Gilmour-like lead guitar. Rare Blend is a group that knows how to paint pictures with sound.


Vic Samalot - Electric & Acoustic Guitars, Bass, Drum Programming.
Bobbi Holt - Keyboards, Synthesizers, Bass.

Written, recorded, produced, and mixed by Vic Samalot & Bobbi Holt. Recorded at Act-V and Odyssey studios in Cleveland, Ohio USA.

Sound Check Magazine

Very cool music!
RB's "Cinefusion" is a high spirited, uplifting and fast-paced CD. Samalot and Holt have done their homework; They know how to paint pictures with music. (Susan Fenske)

Greetings From The Northcoast

Holt and Samalot work in an instrumental format, creating
a variety of aural landscapes and musical moods. They
achieved a nice blend on Cinefusion.


refreshingly cool!
One of the greatest features about Cinefusion is its multidimensional focus, in which a variety of feelings and ambiences are explored with a free spirit that allows the unique character of each track to shine through.

Progressor R

Rare Blend's "Cinefusion" is, in my view, the best instrumental album within the framework of Neo Progressive.

Progression Magazine

Led by Samalot's resonant guitar flights, Cinefusion reminds be both stylistically and sonically of some of the recent instrumental progressive works coming out of South America. These tracks are so well put together that I'd love to hear more..(John Collinge / Progression Magazine - USA)
