I agree, nice stuff!

Is the album out, though? More samples would be needed.

But yes...this should definitely make it on the archives.

Why isn't Ske included on PA yet?
 
I cant' believe there is any discussion possible wether this is prog or not.  Somwhere perfectly in btween RIO and old school prog. Extremely colourfull and pretty unique.  If releases like thise on are not included on PA then the site looses it relevance quickly.

It's probably because they have very little music available for online streaming.

I can't believe it either, I don't see any such discussion.

If PA were that relevant then maybe AltRock would have sent PA some promo CDs.

Hey, guys,
SKE is absolutely fabulous, why it is still not included? To me, it doesn't matter, that too little streaming was available, or the record was not sent to PA.
PA is for all and not only for PA staff, isn't it?
Here is my review, please, include SKE as soon as possible.

-------------------------------

Tracklist:

1.      Fraguglie (6:05)

2.      Denti (5:10)

3.      Carta E Burro (4:57)

4.      Scrupoli (4:12)

5.      Delta (5:05)

6.      Scogli1 (2:12)

7.      Sotto Sotto (5:35)

8.      Mummia (5:23)

9.      Scogli 2 (2:33)

10.  La Nefazia Di Multatuli (6:29)

11.  Scogli 3 (1:30)

12.  Rassegnati (7:08)

Line-up:

Paolo Ske Botta – Keyboards, synths
Fabio Ciro Ceriani – Sansula, percussion
Valerio Cipollone – Clarinets, saxophones
Enrica Di Bastione – Harp
Maurizio Fasoli – Piano
Elia Leon Mariani – Violin
Nicolas Nickolopoulos – Flute
Giuseppe Jos Olivini – Theremin, percussion, effects
Roberta Pagani – Voice
Valerio Neth Raina – Voice
Mattia Signò – Drums
Markus Strauss – Saxophone
Fabrice Toussaint – Idiophones, trombone, perscussion
Pierre Wawrzyniak – Bass
Francesco Zago – Guitars

------------------------------------------------------

Everything we do, not only increases entropy in the Universe, but also does something with the total balance of beauty and ugliness. Or, in other words, it adds to or subtracts from the Total Harmony of the Universe. I believe, that good music adds.

It doesn’t even matter, if somebody listens to this music. The musician releases it, just like a beautiful bird from its cage. If somebody has seen the bird flying, consider it as a piece of luck. If not, it doesn’t matter, the music has fulfilled its global task: helping us to approach the state of the Total Harmony, making the world cleaner, brighter.

Those were my thoughts while listening to the SKE’s first album “1000  autunni”, released in the spring of 2011 by Fading Records/Altrock.it. I was sure. This music adds to the Total Harmony of the Universe. It is a most beautiful bird, and I was lucky to see it flying. I was also sure of another thing. If I would ever make a movie, I will ask Paolo Ske Botta, the SKE’s mastermind, to write the music. His music is not only symphonic or even spherical, but also it tells a story. Or if you wish, it shows you beautiful landscapes, seen, as if from the seat of the train.

I guess, this is an imprint Paolo has got after his work on French TV and of course, with another RIO superband – Yugen. But also, SKE’s music has this special, a little iron edge in it. I guess, the term fusion fits most here.

Talking about performance, only superlatives pop in my mind. But my heart is gone to the woodwind, and especially the flute. I will definitely show this exotic bird to my friends. I think, even people who don’t dig prog or fusion, will be able to appreciate the beauty if this one.

-----------------------

5 stars, absolutely!
