4 stars CALOMITO are a six piece band from Italy with the usual instruments then add sax and violin. There is some guest trumpet as well. I was really impressed with their second record and after spending some time with this the debut i'm left with the same feelings. These guys are just interesting and their enthusiasm shines through the music they create. They are all great players but I think I enjoy the drumming the most on this one.

"Collante" kicks in right away with drums, bass and violin standing out. A calm with marching styled drums follows. More bass, drums and violin before another calm. Lots of drums, sax and violin late. Great tune ! "Nautilus" is relaxed to start as the violin comes in before a minute then keyboards. A calm before 2 minutes then horns as drums pound. It picks up after 4 1/2 minutes but not for long. Great sound when it picks up again. Nice bass and drum work here. "Am Ha'aretz" opens with a Middle Eastern sounding piece that i'm not fond of but it's brief. The tempo continues to shift. Love the sound 3 minutes in then we get chanting and percussion a minute later. It kicks back in at 5 1/2 minutes with horns then violin. More chanting and violin to end it.

"Ebetus" features drumming, sax, violin and more. Love the drumming. Some weird sounds come in then it picks back up with horns. "Dal Buffo Buio" has a cool sound with the spoken processed words. Sax kicks in at 11/2 minutes. "Rutz" has some silliness early then it settles in with violin then horns as they trade off. "Nascosto" has a relaxing beat with keys and more. "Kaiser" has a catchy beat with chunky bass, violin and sax.

CALOMITO are an adventerous band who know how to put on a show and entertain. An impressive debut.
