3 stars It's such a good debut album of PDF (from Rome), regarded as followers of the jazz-fusion/progressive scene in Italy (think of Banco del Mutuo Soccorso and Ezra Winston for instance, in some circumstances only, but above all Arti e Mestieri from Northern Italy.), a bit symbolizing the re-birth of the progressive movement, along with their pretty album cover picture (from a famous painting by Eugene Barman, a Russian artist) which is worth checking out at least!

Of course it's their gift to the old Italian jazz progressive genre, which sometimes is far away from the Romantic movements, being often in the vein of another jazz rock ensemble like Perigeo, but you can't forget all the other styles, making this band a versatile ensemble (well actually let me think of an experimental project such as that one-for example- by "A Triggering Myth", an American Duo, and soon I lose interest for PDF, but it's only a question of personal tastes...). Anyway, coming to the present issue, the allegoric meanings regarding the artwork of such cover pictures of the seventies, in this case are used-actually- with the purpose to express their protest against the media, which still nowadays relegate the underground progressive scene into the margin. Otherwise sometimes also a remarkable band like Il Balletto di Bronzo was relegated on the fringe of the music market, above all when They chose a controversial cover picture portraying the bust of a famous dictator on a black that time much "politically uncorrected" (even though their intention was absolutely diverse and clean too!!). Instead, talking about this debut album, the presence of Rodolfo Maltese and Francesco di Giacomo in "L'Infedele", supporting the Italian sextet in a excellent manner as usual, is important and quite exciting as well!! Therefore if you regard of the introduction by Area in the informative notes, the real masters of progressive jazz, "In Ogni Luogo." is also advisable for the followers of this particular "wide-ranging" music genre, a bit referred to the famous "creature" by Demetrio Stratos.

Interesting work!!
