Baro Prog-Jets biography
BARO PROG-JETS is the name referring to Italian multi-instrumentalist Baro's dreams of his own progressive rock compositions taking flight!

Exposed to the classic adventurous rock sounds of Genesis, King Crimson, Yes, Pink Floyd, ELP, Frank Zappa and others as a youngster in the mid-Seventies led Baro (born Alberto Molesini) to taking up playing musical instruments, and eventually forming a band La Sintesi, who would perform in Verona before disbanding at the end of the Eighties. But even at that early age, he was writing and recording, via rudimentary means, the first versions of ambitious concept works, although these would remain uncompleted for some time yet...

Fast forward to now, and the artist has finally completed several of his once only dreamed-about works, released in a special double-CD edition by Andromeda Relix. `Lucille A Giada' is a forty-four minute, multi-part suite in the classic and grandiose vintage RPI manner, and `Topic Würlenio' is comprised of shorter political and social themed songs, but both discs offer a varied and colourful collection of lavish progressive rock music.

Review by alainPP

3 stars BARO PROG-JETS is the name of the Italian multi-instrumentalist BARO exposed for ages to the adventurous rock of dinosaurs. This led him to want to learn to play, to sing, to compose in LA SINTESI then in MARYGOLD, Italian groups where the sounds had traces of YES and KING CRIMSON, this during the 80s. He left last year a rock opera he composed over 20 years ago; end of an avowed dream which allows him to be able to release this recent project. He poses here an RPI rock with musical lines smelling the progressive scent of what his brain has been able to record for many years. In short, let's dive into his musical utopia.

"Non Sento" for a title sung in Italian; neo on a song by his previous group LA SINTESI closing the page, a catchy prog pop song `` radio edit '' AOR as I like to say with chorus, backing vocals and a little solo, light tune without too much outlines. "Utopia" for a complex suite bathed in the world of FLOWER KINGS, diffuse sounds where the drawers open and close recurrently to the rhythm of the tunes and instruments, around 6 minutes we set off on the long musical steppes of YES, all set on a sly and doctored medieval tournament story where the knight learns it the hard way; the beautiful part goes here to the different keyboards infusing an energy and a melody to this title; title that bathes well in the 70's. A long title that is worth several listenings to get out of the ramifications, a sign of the basic RPI.

"Phase I (Set Your Body Free)" with keyboards to talk about overcoming pain and illness, the sound with jazzy syncopated reminiscences, other melodic and progressive ones, the guitar getting twisted at times; I can only quote MAGELLAN, a little CAIRO for the technique and the flights, which sends us well to the 80's. The synths are charged again for the end, the drums giving energetic pad. "Phase II (Set Your Mind Free)" arrives with the association of borderline a capella voice and an acoustic guitar, then the incorporation of various synths, organ and piano, an Andalusian guitar, twirling keyboards; note the classic RPI sound with this piano base; I find a little of the old JESTER'S JOKE there, the sound leaves on a melting pot of two decades with a darker tone as the title progresses, a majestic sound at times with extremely simple voice-piano drawers. For history the journey of thought collides with harsh reality and is imprisoned in an iron garden; YES comes back in rhythm, the tortured guitar brings me back to GENESIS to see KING CRIMSON. "Runaways" or the musical melting pot, a nervous, playful piece, endless drawers, atmospheres, breaks, convolutions which take you very far and which require sustained attention to dissect this imaginary musical world in which you may fall; to note a stunning guitar solo, another organ to melt, rhythmic synth and a drums well in place that throws you to the ground, in short the song from the album with Yessian hints of the most beautiful effect, a YES of the 80's and 90's with MAGELLAN sauce.

BARO PROG-JETS, after 40 years of being immersed in prog rock, is therefore releasing this utopian piece as a musical journey on violence and deception; the music is progressive, complex and architectural, seeming to set up an edifice of RPI notes and sounds; the piano always in front, a symphonic side bathed in YES for the organs, PFM, a zest of JADIS; one thing is certain, it is varied and it goes a little in all directions, to believe that the "rascal" had a lot to say since that time. Inventive, classic and fresh RPI to discover.

Thanks to aussie-byrd-brother for the artist addition.
