Thanks, Jim...still not quite there, but wonderful music serves as a fine distraction!

I just added a review for a recent Picchio dal Pozzo DVD called `Live', a recording of a performance from 2011, and it is a must-buy for lovers of the Italian band and experimental jazz/R.I.O/Canterbury fans! Sheer musican perfection to my ears (and eyes, after all it was a DVD! )

I wished they played `Seppia' on it though, that is a seriously messed-up and crazy spacy track on that debut album!

I've read the interview. Stefano Testa is an artist sui generis and a great man. He lives on the top of a mountain with only a dog as a company. How nice words on Jim and this site. Gratifying for sure.

That was F-bombing awesome Jim!!ClapClapClap What this site is meant to do and makes me smile!
 
 I had not heard of him until this post, yet another artist in RPI I need to listen to.  I see his first album on Amazon, but oddly did not see his latest.  Plan to start with the first one anyway.
 
Lucky dog.....
 
PS - Hope and pray all is well to those in den, had a few struggles lately also, but health is ok.

Jim I think you could buy Stefano's latest album from Greg Walker or Doug Larson in the States....unless they are sold out.

Question time guys!

Can you think of any RPI bands that do NOT use keyboards? The RPI group is currently evaluating a band called Lineateorica, who do not use keyboards, and it got me thinking - I'm sure I've encountered this before, but just can't work out which bands!!

Can anyone please suggest some?
