Any word on the new Museo album, what to expect?

Congrats!  How are those Rosetta Stone courses, I have been thinking about trying it?

I am wrapping up my third week.  I believe it is working!  Let's see where I am in another month.

Oh Mr Duckman!

I listened to this wonderful album today, and I wonder if you know of a CD issue of it?

BLUE MORNING - Blue Morning (1973)


Lovely tasteful jazz-fusion with bluesy guitar playing. Nice and pleasant for a warm afternoon, yep with a thoughtful and reflective sound for a cool night. Even the figure on the front cover looks lost in contemplation

The unexpected follow-up to Bucato features Paolo Angeli the composer, instead of the instrument builder and virtuoso. For Nita: L'Angelo Sul Trapezio (Nita, the Angel at the Trapeze) he brought in over 20 musicians, five singers, and a street band. Presented as "an imaginary soundtrack," Nita draws on Italian folk, Italian avant-jazz, the lighter side of RIO (Samla Mammas Manna, in particular), Frank Zappa, and a touch of Quebec musique actuelle. Typical of Angeli, the music consists of several short pieces grouped in loose suites. We move from pop songs to experimental breaks, harp-driven themes, street band numbers, and quirky avant-jazz without a chance to catch our breath. It all occasionally sounds chaotic, only to appear exquisitely organized the next minute -- and that second impression is the one that lasts when the music's over. Angeli's creativity overflows. He manages to squeeze in a few impressive guitar tracks ("Ritagli di Tempo": magnificent), but truly shines here as a composer and leader. The instrumentation includes a string quartet, harp (Federica Somigli), keyboards, accordion (Roberto Secchi), a horn section, and percussion (including drummer Mirko Sabatini). Folk singer Margareth Kammerer guests on "La Mulina da Pepa"; Banda Roncati is the street band in "Bando," and the two last pieces (the coda). Even if you don't understand Italian (the booklet includes an English translation of the lyrics, but it is approximate, at best), you will be sucked inside Angeli's highly colored, fast moving universe. The scope of the undertaking commands respect, the wildly entertaining results deserve cheers. A soundtrack? Nita is actually a whole film without images.

Let's see how good is the new album... I will tell you.

Now I can only say the intro reminded me of New Trolls a bit.

I believe the new album is missing the original keyboardist and guitarist, so this is a "new" Museo.
Blessed Easter to you and yours...

Fellow RPI'ers, I'm avoiding listening to the new Museo sample, I want to be totally surprised when I buy it! But thanks for the link anyway, Jim! Honestly, I was just going to buy it all along!

Hmmm, this reminds me, wonder how the new Il Tempio Delle Clessidre is coming along too?

One more word on the PAOLO ANGELI's album. Listenned to it all day. Very good, close in many ways to Allegri Leproti. Mix of Jazz, River (RIO), Prog, Folk, haunting sardinian harmonies ... etc. I must dig this guy.

Come vote to save:

Let's get these bands into the Hall of Fame!  Cheers!  Beer

To comment on the mild debate of a few weeks/threads ago on the Cervello-Melos vs Osanna-Palepoli.  I have listened to each about 5 or 6 times each (the first time for both), one after the other (although could only listen via the tube as they seem hard to find).  On the first couple of listens, Palepoli had the lead, but after more listens Melos has pulled even and I cannot choose. Confused
 
Both are excellent!  Palepoli has a quite a number of climatic high moments but Melos seems more well rounded and solid, if that makes any sense.  Anyway, my 2 cents worth...

^ A sqeaker for sure!  If that was Florida or Ohio, a recount would have been needed Smile 
 
Since I am only familiar with the Quella's 2nd album, I have a new listening challenge to pursue...
