"Sal DiFusco is the ultimate guitarist able to comfortably switch between hard‐core bebop jazz to heavy fusion rock and sound authentic in any style he chooses to play. His technical and musical ability on the guitar is beyond reproach and he is considered one of the top players in the Boston and New England area."

"In all honesty, I could not make such a strong recommendation without reservation if I did not hold Sal in absolute highest esteem as a person, based on the attributes of his character. He is a solid family man, very active in giving back generously to his community; and I have witnessed his upstanding role in helping others less fortunate time and again."
