Litto Nebbia biography
Argentinian composer, instrumentalist and producer Litto NEBBIA (real name Félix Francisco Nebbia) is a veteran of the Argentinian rock scene. A highly influential one at that, and a pioneer. In the first half of the 1960's he sought his fortunes in rock music, and as a forming member of Los Gatos he got his share of fame and fortune early. A part of his career that inspired many contemporary musicians too, with artists such as Charly García and Luis Alberto Spinetta acknowledging the importance of Nebbia and Los Gatos as inspirations for their own careers.

While most renowned as an instrumentalist, jazz musician and for his later day excursions into other styles, the 1970's saw Nebbia exploring a stylistic field rather more refined. A string of albums issued between 1971 and 1977 saw Nebbia either incorporating elements from or actively exploring progressive rock, fusion and jazzrock. This period of his career concluded with the advent of The National Reorganization Process in Argentina and Nebbia's subsequent exile in Mexico, and when he moved back again in the 1980's he had moved on to different pastures as a composer and musician both. And while he continued being, and still is, a driving force in the Argentinian music scene, for fans of progressive rock it's his albums from 1971 til 1977 that may be worth investigating.

Fuera del Cielo
Litto Nebbia Crossover Prog

Review by apps79
Special Collaborator Neo Prog Team

3 stars In 1975 Nebbia moved to the Argentinial label Trova, which opened their collaboration with the archival album ''Cosas que no quieren morir''.At the same time he produced Pastoral's more highly-acclaimed album ''En el hospicio'', while kept writing music for a new album with Mirtha Delfipo providing all lyrics.But this time there were only two members on the instruments, Jorge Gonzalez on bass and Nestor Astaritas on drums, with Nebbia singing, playing all keyboards and guitars.''Fuera del cielo'' was the title of his new album.Juan Jose Mosalini is featured on bandoneon in one piece.

Nebbia's latter works contained strong progressive aspects, but ''Fuera del cielo'' was nothing else than a 100% jazzy Progressive Rock album.If you have any doubts, the 17-min. title track couls give some answers.Nebbia's armour included both electric and acoustic panos, harsichord and Hammond organ and the result was a long, soft progressive opus with great vocal parts, dramatic sections and even some complex instrumental moments, we weren't actually used to such a production by Nebbia.But the Classical washes on the keyboard lines, the omnipresent jazzy spices of the electric piano and the romantic lyricism are the dominant elements of this composition.The rest of the album in not a different fruit.Mostly long tracks (6-8 minutes long) with nice instrumental work, basically drawing influences from Jazz Fusion and Symphonic/Psych Rock to a lesser extent, the sole matter of discussion being Nebbia's sentimental voice placed to the more intricate instrumentals compared to the past.But the music is very good with tight keyboard exercises, some more guitar-based lines compared to the opening epic and a more pronounced organ work.The psychedelic colors now appear only during the softer moments or the vocal parts and there are even some light jamming moods to be found, very solid effort as a whole.

If you are a die-hard Prog fan, who doesn't like his music to be bastardized by dated psychedelic tunes or Pop sensibilities, this is the one album to get from Litto Nebbia's discography.Very good jazzy Prog with some fine instrumental work on keyboards and pianos.Strongly recommended...3.5 stars.

Litto Nebbia Crossover Prog

Review by apps79
Special Collaborator Neo Prog Team

3 stars By 1973 Nebbia had set up his own backing group, also known as Litto Nebbia trio, with him singing and playing guitars and keyboards, Jorge Gonzalez on bass and Nestor Astarita on drums.His next album ''Melopea'' was named after the greek work of the ability of a musician to create melodic songs based on texts and poems.This word would also become the name of Nebbia's label, established in early-80's.It was released in 1974 on RCA, featuring Jazz guitarist Rodolfo Alchourrón, Rodolfo Mederos, sax/flute player Hector Bingert and Mirtha Delfipo.

The album consisted of 13 short tracks, forming a long Melodic Pop Rock suite, highlighted by Nebbia's poetic voice and the mass of electric and acoustic shifts.Part of this work sounds like a rather typical Singer/Songwriter album with lots of vocals, acoustic interludes and pretty conventional song structures, basically focusing on melodies.But several spins will surface lots of hidden treasures.Nebbia had colored his lyrical style with influences from Psychedlic Rock, Jazz and Orchestral Music, starting with dominant string sections, passing by sweet, psychedelic soundscapes with irritating musicianship and flirting with Jazz/Fusion, based on the flawless guitar solos of Alchourron and the sax lines of Bingert.''Melopea'' still suffers from some syrupy melodies of a poppier approach, but it marks a nice step forward for Nebbia as a composer.The material is refined, well-built around the different influences and the arrangements are tight with memorable tunes.The guest list appears to have been a great help for the trio, even if extended instrumental themes are absent.The music in the background is very good with intense textures and atmospheric passages, offering a good result combined with Nebbia's lyrical presence.

Argentinian vocal-based Psych/Prog with touches from Jazz and Pop.Old-fashioned listeners will love this album.Warmly recommended.

Litto Nebbia Crossover Prog

Review by Evolver
Special Collaborator Crossover & JazzRock/Fusion Teams

4 stars I found Litto Nebbia's previous album, "Bazar de los Milagros" to be a bit of a letdown. There were a few progressive elements, but not many. Mostly, it was an album of latin flavored jazz. Not bad, but mostly uninteresting.

But on this album, Nebbia has returned to form. There is more than a hint of Canterbury styled jazz rock fusion here, and even a piano solo that seems to look to good old Keith Emerson for inspiration.

These are finely executed pieces, with changing themes, time signature play, and and well crafted solos. I particularly like the keyboard sounds he uses. They evoke the classic Todd Rundgren albums in my ears.

Special Collaborator Crossover & JazzRock/Fusion Teams

2 stars I found this album to be much less interesting than "Fuera del Cielo", the only earlier album I have thus far heard from Litto Nebbia. Where that album was steeped in the Canterbury style of jazzy prog, this one is more of a straightforward South American light jazz rock set.

There are a few songs that captured my attention, however. The opener and title track, Bazar de los Milagros, while simple instructure has some nice solos. And Bituca, the only truly prog track from the original release, is as fine a somg as I've heard from Nebbia. And it also includes an excellent guitar solo.

My copy has some bonus tracks. While these are short and more experimental than anything on the original album, they all have an unfinished feel to them.

Muerte en La Catedral
Litto Nebbia Crossover Prog

Review by apps79
Special Collaborator Neo Prog Team

2 stars Litto Nebbia is an Argentinian singer-songwriter,who was original founder of the psych/rock band Los Gatos along with keyboardist Ciro Fogliatta,one of the major acts of the early Argentinian rock scene.Los Gatos disbanded in 1970,however Nebbia had already started his solo career in 1969 with an album under his name.Four more albums would follow in a typical singer/songwriter style:''Litto Nebbia Vol. 2'' (1970), ''Nebbia's Band'' (1971), ''Despertemos en América'' (1972) and ''Huinca'' (also 1972).

With ''Muerte en la catedral'',released in 1973 on RCA,Nebbia begins to add different elements from the growing progressive rock scene in his music,without leaving his psychedelic and folk roots behind.The album is quited dated I have to say with today's standards,but it contains some good moments of music.Helped by several musicians,Nebbia offers a work somewhat split between acoustic folk/psych and lightweighted prog with plenty of vocals.The acoustic material is in the typical Nebbia style,simple tunes with sensitive vocals,nothing trully exceptional.The most intricate side of the album delivers a slightly complicated sound with rich instrumentation,featuring clavinet,glockenspiel,synths,trumpets and electric guitars and tracks drawing influences from symphonic rock,horn rock and chamber music.These ones won't definitely satisfy the average progger,but they are good examples of what Nebbia was able for.

''Muerte en la catedral'' didn't grow very well through time,on the other hand it is a respectful psych/folk/rock album with a good amount of progressive influences and possibly a future purchase at a reasonable price for anyone wanting to broaden his psych/prog collection.

Fuera del Cielo
Litto Nebbia Crossover Prog

Review by Evolver
Special Collaborator Crossover & JazzRock/Fusion Teams

3 stars From the sound of this album, Litto Nebbia must be from the Canterbury section of Argentina. By that I mean, other than the Spanish lyrics, this album sounds very much like what we know of as the Canterbury style of prog. From the electric piano and organ tones, the jazz fusion tinged arrangements, and even the vocal melodies, this album evokes Caravan, early Soft Machine and the like.

Of course, being from Argentina, there must also be some Spanish guitar, and even accordion (well, actually bandoneon, if you must be technical). And it all works well.

That said, for what this is, there is nothing that leaps out of the music and grabs me. No noticable standout performances or unusually great compositions. So I can only give this three stars.
