3 stars Calomito from the Italian port of Genova were formed at the dawn of the new millenium.The band was a sextet featuring Filippo Cantarella on violin/viola, Tommaso Rolando on bass, Matteo Ammirati on guitars, Paolo Piccardo on drums, Federico Barrai on sax/percussion and Kai Kundrat on keys/piano.Theu debut ''Inaudito'' was released on Megaplomp in 2005 and distributed worldwide by Wide Records, featuring guest appearances by Marco Ravera on guitars and Marco Tindiglia on trumpet.

The style of the band is a mix of flexible Jazz-Rock and somewhat dark and complex R.I.O./Chamber Rock with a sound led by bass, electric piano, the violin and viola of Cantarella and Barrai's saxes.A good delivery by this sextet, which know when to play violently and when to add some fresh air to the music.Often the arrangements have a strong folk/ethnic nostalgic feeling coming out of nowhere and being a great positive of their sound.In ''Inaudito'' the massive atonal parts led by the huge sax and violin sounds are nicely replaced by some refreshing Jazz-Rock with fine work on electric piano and a number of fiery interplays.A couple of numbers also flirt with straight Jazz, characterized by the jazzy drumming, Barrai's sax solos and Rolando's contrabass grooves with a nice live feeling.Electric guitars are used scarcely on the good interplays offered here and there.

A quite consistent debut with an attractive sound and a style somewhere between VOLAPUK and AREA, pretty Ethnic-influenced R.I.O./Jazz-Rock with a nice dose of diversity.A great addition for fans of the style,which will also have some appeal to fans of straight Jazz.

Review by Mellotron Storm
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.
