5 stars Buon Vechio Charlie

One of the masterpieces, not only of the Italian prog but also in the entire prog scene. This is jazz-rock of first class mixed with symphonic prog, and if it wasn't enough, it has vocals in all the songs, as I think instrumentals records are for few bands. The first song "Venite Giú al Fiume", is a frenetic piece who starts with flute riff followed by the band in the best prog way as you may know, on this song we can realize a homage to ELP and then to Colisseum, one of the bands they've been inspired. Second song, I will call it jazz ballad, another great song. The third song is the longer and is always divided by an acoustic guitar, as in all the record the instruments are very well played: superb organ, superb guitar, fast jazz drums, flute and sax, discreet vocals, very original and a hidden treasure to every prog fan, specially italian fans. The bands name was chosen because they would like to be remembered as a person, ah. o bom e velho Charlie.
