"Nicola Costa is an outstanding, world-class player who stands tall with the best of them. The bluesy-fusion direction, hard vibes and grooves with liquid-organic tones are authentic and pure. The heavy Michael Landau inspiration on "Little Boy Blues" shines deep. Costa & his people did a excellent job on the rather superb "Electric Roots" disc".
Joe Romagnola / Grooveyard Records
“The Best Italian Guitar Player You've Never Heard. This is one of the most surprisingly good albums I've heard in awhile. Costa's influences are readily heard here from Jeff Beck to Jimi. However, comparisons to Jonny A are also in order. At times bluesy, at others jazzy, every one of these tracks are extremely listenable to those who like to hear solid, instrumental guitar. Highly Recommended.” - Jeff Centers / iTunes Review
“Nicola Costa is an extremely gifted guitarist who offers 10 tracks of original and extremely diverse instrumentals on this CD... He shows both the beauty and the beast to you here as he can nearly lull you to sleep with a track of gentle beauty, then blow the hat off your head with the fury of the beast... I am considering Electric Roots a "must own" recording for anyone who likes great blues, blues/rock, or jazz guitar work or just plain good music in general...” - Tom Branson / Bluesrockers
“Nicola Costa is able to deliver the most marvellous consonances from its instrumental magic, generally, however, using all kinds of equipment, but belief me, these provide a more than a great result... ... We were extremely surprised by this artist who brings qualitatively high standard music. Nicola Costa, is a name to remember! ” - Ronny Bervoets / Rootstime
"Little Boy Blues is awesome man!!"
Josh Smith / Guitarist, Solo Artist
"It was really cool to master Electric Roots and I regard Nicola as an awesome player"

Electric Roots Reviews
This is a great instrumental guitar record .The songs are full of ideas and surprising playing . I am really happy to discover this guitar player. Cdbaby
Burning guitar tones, awesome playing and great tunes... what else could you want in an instrumental guitar record. This is now one of my favorite guitar cds and I just got it. Easily ranks up there with some great player and even surpasses some. Michael Landau, Allen Hinds, Greg Howe etc. Buy it if you like these guys. Cdbaby
Very good instrumental blues/fusion CD.
Recomended for people who like Micheal Landau and Scott Henderson. Cdbaby
