3 stars Quite diverse appearance but their music core sounds intensive. LITAI are an Italian avantgarde jazz combo that possess a strict, sharp instrumental technique and deep, dark music vibes. Every musician has a promising intention for their sound development and innovation definitely. Can be called as "Italian dark multidirectional jazz rock" let me say.

Their soundscape might have got influenced by lots of jazz rock vanguards like King Crimson in the Discipline era (e.g. a track "Olio Su Tela" sounds like "Neil And Jack And Me") or Yochk'o Seffer (yeah saxophone madness), and crazy voices are something characteristic. Exactly their massively, strongly unified rhythm army parade is perfect and their creations in this debut shot are pretty promising.

Contrary to their splendid instrumental technique and multidirectional rhythm and multitempo (and simultaneously without any blur) soundprint shower, their soundscape or tune appearance should remind us of something like texture by the pioneers of jazz rock. Quite a tough call to create novel phrases, paragraphs, or stories under this subgenre where the excellent vanguards seem to have completed development perfectly. Honest to say (and personally) it might be more interesting they would squeeze Italian Symphonic Rock essence into such a killer avantgarde jazz rock. Yea this has been released as their debut album, so Ido hope their following creation will grab more and more amazing kaleidoscopic flavour and taste, along with their current promising exertion of powerful jazz rock entertainment.

In conclusion, we have NO suspicion against the fact they are fantastic really. And of course, we have a magnificent expectation for their next creation and brilliant future. Cheers!
