Prog Reviewer
3 stars After playing in the Italian art pop band "Showmen 2", James Senese and Franco Del Prete formed what would become one of the most intriguing and unique bands of the early 70's. Centered around a fusion rock core, NAPOLI CENTRALE's debut album convincingly combined Jazz and progressive rock. Once again this album defies simple categorization, but the music is highly exploratory and very progressive in approach. Kind of a mix of NATIONAL HEALTH with GENTLE GIANT, Herbie Hancock and a good dose of WEATHER REPORT. Instrumentally these guys love to groove with lots of sax, fender electric piano, bass and drums. Vocals are not central but are well done and sung in native Italian... kind of a nice full soulful voice. I know that today their music back catalogue is in demand as folk are re-discovering this band's early creativity. I would highly recommend this album to any progressive rock fan who likes the Cantebury or jazz prog side of this genre.
