4 stars Cabaret in opposition!

NICHELODEON's, 2013 live "Musica Cruda" displays the synthesizer like abilities of Claudio Milano's voice, accompanied in this up-front solitary quest by the early Renaissance music like background of Raoul Moretti's talents (harps, effects, slides, archetto) as he plays along the environments for Milano to dwell with his very personal poetry and highly emotional and dramatic voice (thus the comparison with Cabaret music).

I personally was thrown back to my youthful days of Dadaistic explorations here in Mexico City and although I witnessed many great acts, this experience as such is far more mature as far as music composition goes.

It responds directly also to Claudio Milano's very intimate vocal musical expressions and his song writing concept, which in this collection of live songs, sets the tone for a "less is more" performance and yes it is far better and really gutsy!

Nevertheless I have to emphasize Moretti's minimal but effective time-machine performance, which acts as a catalytic converter to Milano's obscure and irreverent yet intelligent poetry and deliriums.

****4 " beauty and the beast " PA stars.
