4 stars Incredible how many 'classic' Italian progrock bands bands have reunited in the last two decades, from Il Balletto Di Bronzo, Le Orme and Banco to New Trolls and Osanna. This rebirth of these 'oldies' even led to concerts by these Italian progrock bands in Holland: first Le Orme (goose bumps during Felona E Sorona) and then PFM (great community singing during Celebration), what a joy, "multo grazie!".

Well, here is another "gran ritorno", the widely acclaimed Latte E Miele. And the six piece line-up includes all three members of the original line up from their outstanding debut album Passio Secundum Mattheum (1972).

This live CD was recorded in Canada in 2008, it sounds good and we can enjoy a very inspired band, playing compositions from their three Seventies albums and a few new songs (like the varied final track Vision Of Sunlight). The decision of the band to add an extra keyboard player has turned to out be an excellent move, what a glorious keyboard sound: Grand piano, Hammond organ, Mellotron, vintage synthesizers, harpsichord and classical orchestrations (on the Pavana suite, evoking The Enid), this is a Keyboard Heaven! But the instrumentation is more than a lush keyboard sound, from all sorts of guitar (electric, acoustic, classical) to brass and warm Italian vocals.

Listening to this live CD is making a musical journey with Latte E Miele to their exciting world of the Italian progrock in the SeventiesI, what a beautiful and often compelling music, and what an excellent musicians, I am very impressed!

After this live CD Latte E Miele made a new album entitled Marco Polo - Sogni E Viaggi in 2009 and in 2014 the band released Passio Secundum Matthaeum - The Complete Work, both albums were well received.
