Review by Andrea Cortese
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
3 stars Claudio Rocchi is an italian singer-songwriter, founder member of STORMY SIX. He left the band just after the release of their debut album "Le Idee di Oggi per la Musica di Domani" in 1969 and went solo a year later with the album "Il Viaggio".

The first part of his career is based upon a psychedelic-folk vein (dipped into tibetan philosophy) and his most known work is the second record "Volo Magico n. 1" where the whole second half is a wonderful acoustic crescendo marked by eastern-sounding electric guitar.

At the half of the seventies he went more experimental (electronic) with albums as "Rocchi" (1975) and "Suoni di Frontiera" (1976) abandoning the song format.

After that period, in 1977 he returned to the roots with the album "A Fuoco". But time has changed again and so his music: he added, for the first time, to his peculiar folk some somptuous orchestral movements. The result is not bad and, generally, the music is well arrenged. A reasonable record but with few variations and so not so exciting.

Well, to be honest, there is some sparse synth (as in "Guardando") plus excellent violin contribution by the violin himself: Lucio "Violino" Fabbri (PFM). There is also a performance of Alberto Camerini (the one who played guitar in "Volo Magico n. 1") and Daniele Cavallanti (sax player member of AKTUALA).
