5 stars Everything we do, not only increases entropy in the Universe, but also does something with the total balance of beauty and ugliness. Or, in other words, it adds to or subtracts from the Total Harmony of the Universe. I believe, that good music adds.

It doesn't even matter, if somebody listens to this music. The musician releases it, just like a beautiful bird from its cage. If somebody has seen the bird flying, consider it as a piece of luck. If not, it doesn't matter, the music has fulfilled its global task: helping us to approach the state of the Total Harmony, making the world cleaner, brighter.

Those were my thoughts while listening to the SKE's first album "1000 autunni", released in the spring of 2011 by Fading Records/ I was sure. This music adds to the Total Harmony of the Universe. It is a most beautiful bird, and I was lucky to see it flying. I was also sure of another thing. If I would ever make a movie, I will ask Paolo Ske Botta, the SKE's mastermind, to write the music. His music is not only symphonic or even spherical, but also it tells a story. Or if you wish, it shows you beautiful landscapes, seen, as if from the seat of the train. I guess, this is an imprint Paolo has got after his work on French TV and of course, with another RIO superband ? Yugen. But also, SKE's music has this special, a little iron edge in it. I guess, the term fusion fits most here.

Talking about performance, only superlatives pop in my mind. But my heart is gone to the woodwind, and especially the flute. I will definitely show this exotic bird to my friends. I think, even people who don't dig prog or fusion, will be able to appreciate the beauty if this one.
