4 stars Excellent crossover prog......... or whatever you want to call this music.

Fusion/Jazz it is then. Truth to be told, it is fusion, with both feet firmly grounded on Planet Jazz. But the rest of the body is all over the place. Italian Symphonic Prog, Canterbury Scene, Folk Prog etc etc. Arti E Mestieri has really created something special here. Most of all a very playful album with some very good nods towards the likes of National Health and Hatfield & The North. Some Soft Machine flirting can also be found here. Not to mention Return To Forever which is a good reference point. The songs are strong and based on various instruments. The drumming is excellent. The various instruments I refer to is both violins, guitars (electric and accoustic) and all sorts of classic tangents like moog and hammond. The result is a very warm sound. This is pretty much underlined by the lush, inviting vocals. This makes it a surprisingly poetic and pastorial album. But the music are still firmly rooted in jazz. Which makes this a very lush album and a true gem. It is also a unique album and I have never heard anything like it in my life.

It would be unfair to single out a special song here. I regard this as one single piece of music and I recommend this album.

4.25 stars
