3 stars This is a legendary Italian progrock band that produced several albums in the early Seventies. Halfway the Nineties Delirum made a comeback including some new studio albums and in 2006 they performed in the Italian city Trento, just released on this CD. We can enjoy the crafty and inspired musicians who treat us on a tasteful blend of folk (featuring swirling flute, warm acoustic guitars and strong vocals) and rock songs with fiery guitar and powerful saxophone. At some moments Delirum delivers jazzy sounding parts with swinging piano and bas. Most of the 13 compositions contain great work on guitar and saxophone and of course, in the tradition of The Seventies, we hear soli on drums and bass. My highlights are Villagio (powerful with swirling flute and fiery guitar and strong soli on guitar, saxophone, flute and organ), Preludio: Paura (folky with a wonderful solo on acoustic guitar), Gioia, Disordine, Risentimento (compelling with a raw and bluesy guitar solo), a Jethro Tull Medley (good play on flute, guitar and bass and a pleasant live atmosphere) and an excellent rendition of Joe Cocker his 'classic' With A Little Bit Help From My Friends featuring splendid organ floods and an inspired vocal performance! The song Notte A Bagdad is based upon the fact that the government of Italy send soldiers to Iraq for a mission, it sounds swinging and modern. I am impressed by this legendary Italian progrock band, this is a good live album with outstanding work on guitar, flute and saxophone in a captivating progressive blend of rock and folk, just like their inspiration Jehtro Tull! My rating: 3,5 stars.
