4 stars Cincinnato is an italian band of 70's formed by unknown and little experienced musicians that after signed to a major label, released only one album before disappear. If the band died quickly, also the album which had around ten thousand copies produced and only a thousand sold. Even though this is an unknown and rare record, it has great quality and will help you to remember famous classics of the period.

The album is not jazz, fusion or jazz rock only, but an italian progressive rock with some jazz/fusion elements built around pianos and guitars, beautifully composed and vocalize, with an excellent musician behind the drums and some great moments.

The first song starts heavily jazz/fusion, but after a while, become very light, like some drops falling over a placid lake, before change again into an accelerated italian prog. It's an instrumental song and a great opening for this album. The second is a minimalist song, soft, almost mellow, without drums. Esperanto, the third song, even though starts very clean and soft, is the most jazz rock. And then the 'gran finale', the suite, the masterpiece. Combining all previous elements and more, vocals, powerfull moments, jazz, fusion, classic, italian prog, L'Ebete is a wonderful suite and it has several fantastic moments during its twenty minutes.

Cincinnato sold a thousand records and disappeared, but it can be the better less sold record ever. The album is an EXCELLENT addition to any prog music collection.
