3 stars This Italian band was rooted in the early Seventies, halfway that era Le Mani recorded five studio tracks but unfortunately (as so often happened) the record companies ignored it and Le Mani disbanded without making a LP. Thanks to the support of Italian progrock label Vinyl Magic, the music by Le Mani can be heard on this mini-CD (running time at about 19 minutes).

1. Tarantella : A fluent song featuring fast organ runs and sparkling flute play. It sounds typical Seventies Italian but the music also reminds me of Hungarian progrock legend Solaris.

2. Il Palazzo : Again a fluent thryhm with organ and saxophone, halfway the music turns into more dreamy with the wonderful sound of the string-ensemble.

3. Canto : This track delivers a cheerful atmosphere with acoustic guitar, pleasant Italian vocals and fine flute work, this is the typical Italian Seventies progrock sound!

4. Mani : A solo piece on the Grand piano, it sounds beautiful.

5. La Casa Del Vento : The final song contains warm vocals and sensitive piano play, a pleasant goodbey to Le Mani.

What a pity that Le Mani only made five studio tracks with a running time of 19 minutes, they deserved an entire studio album!
