The experience with the distorted guitar style and Brazilian rhythms defines his personality. Pop and fusion also influences Solari's music, but he maintains a rock edge with an ever-melodic focus and rapid, precise technique. Solari joins a legion of fans and followers from all over the country of Brazil. Wherever he performs on stage, the audience looks impressed with his vigorous and melodic style.
In the United States, the magazine Guitar Player (Spotlight by Mike Varney) dedicated words of enthusiasm to Solari’s music: “He possesses an incredibly developed talent rarely found in someone so young. Frank displays a keen sense of melody, excellent phrasing and great vibrato. Using both distorted and clean tones, Frank's combination of bluesy lines and rapid, clean legato runs make mature, exciting musical statements." Another magazine, the Guitar World (Hometown Heroes), says: “His tone variations and challenging, tasteful solos further enhance his well-crafted tunes. Few guitarists have Solari's chops; fewer still have the maturity and big-picture approach to make each moment of a tune purposeful, the way Frank does." Other comments: - Billy Cobham (Drummer): “He sounds like a very aggressive-progressive guitarist in a very positive way." - Jornal do Brasil (Rio de Janeiro/Newspaper): "This gaucho surprises the listener with technique and feeling like the best guitarists." - André Geraissati (D’Alma Group/Guitarist): "Frank Solari is one of the greatest guitar virtuosos I've ever saw." - O Globo (Rio de Janeiro/Newspaper): "Frank Solari became a kind of legend here in Brazil."
