3 stars Corte Di Miracoli is not a well-known band. They played some Italian symph with a jazzy taste. I have to admit that this is not the combination I prefer.

But I can cope pretty well with the good E Verrą L' Uomo that opens the album nicely. The fine and symphonic vocal parts combine nicely some more jazz-oriented instrumental sections. Some sounds which are reminiscent of ELP can also be noticed. Same comment about Verso Il Sole except that Graziano Zippo doesn't sound so good in this jazz number.

I am more at ease while I listen to Una Storia Fiabesca. The Italian symph ingredients are all there, and it is mainly due to the dual keyboard players who add more depth to the music. Vocals are also more melodic than during the previous song. It is a highlight from this work.

The pleasure goes on with the emotional Il Rituale Notturno. It is symphonic during the first and sung part of the track, and turns as a jazz one when the instrumentals start (somewhat similar to what could be experienced in the opening song). Since I don't speak Italian, I can't tell of which Nightly Ritual they speak about...It is another fine song by all means.

My favourite one is the closing number: I Due Amanti which holds references to Notre-Dame De Paris. A fine moment to be honest: there are plenty of theme changes, keyboards interplay are excellent and the percussion work is impressive.

You should be aware that this album holds serious jazz influences before you listen to this it. A good album anyway. On the edge of the four stars rating (seven out of ten). Three stars.
