3 stars ''Il Volo'' is another discreet Italian band from he seventies. Unlike several of their colleagues, they won't release only one album. They will last long enough to be able to record.two.

This debut album has a definite jazz feel, but this is not an isolated fact in this genre (PFM, Banco.). But don't worry, this symphonic jazz is easy to digest (believe me). My concern about this album is that some of the tracks are only BRILLIANT during a portion. You should listen to the fantastic guitar solo from ''La Mia Rivoluzione''. Only Carlos could have produced a more emotional one. I would have liked a little more though.

Talking about ''Santana'': this feeling was very present as well during the closing part of ''Come Una Zanzara''. Totally jazzy for a while, it ends up into some frenetic Latin-rock extravaganza.

This album also holds some delicacies which are more in line with the genre like the sweet ''Il Calore Umano'' or '' Il Canto Della Preistoria'' although the later is not really impressive: some weird keyboard sounds are quite disturbing and should have been avoided.

My favourite track is the beautifum ''Sonno''. At last one song which is perfect from start to finish. But it is the last but one song from this work.

Three stars for this very short album (as it is often the case for Italian bands in the seventies).
