Living Life biography
Before forming LIVING LIFE, Johnny BETTI was a drummer on the first line-up of psychedelic Italian band CIRCUS 2000. After leaving the band, BETTI spent a few years touring Europe with jazz musicians until his trip in Aghanistan for a year.

In 1975 he formed LIVING LIFE in Turin and created his own record label Shirak which released his albums and on the debut he was joined by a former CIRCUS 2000 guitarist Marcello QUARTARONE. The two albums by LIVING LIFE were released six years apart, ranging from jazz rock influenced by folk music to more symphonic influenced on the second release which involded four keyboard players. LIVING LIFE disbanded like many unnoticed bands on BETTI's record label.

Review by begnagrad

4 stars Both Living Life albums are well known for being a mystery, naming your band in English was rare in 70's Italy, and the fact that they went totally undetected for many years added to the enchanting appetite for collectors to discover this rare albums.

This second offering finds the band playing in a different style, more progressive rock oriented than the first album, released 6 years prior to this one, but still maintaining hints, here and there, of jazz/rock.

We find the band using more elements of folk/rock and spacey rock delivering a very interesting album, certainly one I would recommend to fans of progressive rock due to its diversity in styles and music.

Another album worth of your time.

3 stars Widely unknown jazz rock band from Turin,formed in mid-70's by ex-Circus 2000 drummer Roberto "Johnny" Betti.Another former member of Circus 2000, guitarist Marcello ''Spooky'' Quartarone participated also in the original line-up.Their first album was released in 1975 on Betti's newly established Shirak Label with no names of the band's members,except the main composer Nijo Tibet,who has to be Betti under a fake pseudonym. Fortunately the album was re-released by Mellow Records on CD in 1995.

''Let: from experience to experience'' is mostly an instrumental album of soft and progressive jazz rock with some ethnic overtones here and there.Unlike many bands dealing with this path,LIVING LIFE choose to balance the album between free impovisational forms and well-arranged compositions,always filled with massive flutes, perscussions and saxes.For example the first two tracks are beautifully composed progressive/jazz tracks with a fair amount of melody and a slight Canterbury feeling (mainly the first).However the two followers, ''Time'' and ''From Marocco'' are an obscure blending of free improvisation and ethnic tunes created by saxes,while those tracks include heavy use of percussions as well.''Ciopi ciopi'' is a relaxing instrumental entirely based on Piercarlo Bettini' piano,while the closer ''Straight down'' is the more balanced composition,where Bettini's piano meets Quartarone smooth solos meets Walter Negri's improvisational saxes and Savarro's fantastic bass lines.A combination of KRAAN, WEATHER REPORT, RETURN TO FOREVER with some AREA's softer music would be a good description.

All in all the album is really satisfying with some trully good moments and a hidden energy on the background. Generally recommended,but not to be missed by fans of progressive rock,who want heavy doses of jazz in their music...3.5 stars.

Thanks to evolver for the artist addition.
