4 stars D.F.A. alas Duty Free Area is the second release of this fantastic jazz fusion band from Italy. Issued in 1999 , was immediatly accepted by the listners and music media as one of the most acomplised jazz fusion albums of the '90's, not only from Italy but in Europe in general. The album has lenghty tracks, 4 out of 6 , very complex, with top notch musicianship, great ideas, every single track is excellent in its own way, providing in the end a whole new dimensions in jazz fusion realm. The band manage to combine very eficient jazz fusion with some space rock elements not far from Ozric Tentacles in their heyday, making a very special atmosphere where the organ and keybords have an important role.. The pretty good idea of how great this record is is by just listning to the opening track Escher - simply brilliant from start to finish, lenghy track with a lots of twists and turns, musicians are simply shining here. There is also besides instrumental pieces, some with vocal offered by some guest like on Esperanto, featurig Deux Ex machina vocalist Alberto Piras, another great tune with a lot to offer. So, easely one of the most as I said acomplised jazz fusion albums, with great performance and stunning ideas. All listners of the genre and including progressive rock fans must take some spins of this album, worth it for sure.4 stars for sure.
