4 stars D.F.A. is a great Italian band playing jazz-rock with lots of spacey and psychedelic elements. Duty Free Area is their second cd studio effort, very complex, carefully planned and brilliantly played music, with breath taking keyboard and guitar passages and excellent rhythm section. By its singing aspect D.F.A. reminds me on another dazzling Italian group - AREA, but its atmospheric background definitely suggests Ozric Tentacles' influence. There are lots of good groups nowadays and when you notice one of them and become interested in its whole production, it's a sign it has offered something unique and valuable. Caleidoscopio is my personal favorite, 9 minutes and 34 seconds of pure nectar, De Grandis -Bonomi masterpiece. By its rich playing potential, by prurience of music they play, D.F.A. seems to be an honorable successor of the great names of jazz-rock in early seventies.
