The only album by this Italian group is jazz oriented hard rock style progressive. They were probably influenced by the English groups of the time but the sound is still rather Italian. The music features sax playing throughout the album and it increases the jazziness factor. Keyboards are featured only in two tracks and are minimal even in those ones. As it often is typical for the jazz oriented groups the rhythm section occasionally steals the show in the case Duello Madre as well. The good rhythm section, especially bassist Bob Callero, indeed is perhaps the strongest part of this group.

Saxophonist/flautist Pippo Trentin and guitarist Marco Zoccheddu have composed the music. The first track "Aquile Blu" is the only one featuring vocals and it clearly is one of the strongest tracks. The other tracks are good as well although in the second half of the album, in tracks "Madre" and "Duello", it at times feels that the playing results in aimless meandering but overall these tracks are good too.

Conclusion: This is a very good Italian jazz-prog album.
