5 stars FESTA MOBILE stands out mostly because of their keyboardist, who plays some of the quirkiest piano melodies I've heard in prog. 1973's "Diarro Di Viaggio Della Festa Mobile" is this band's only album, but a few of the musicians later emerged as BARICENTRO. "Diarro..." is quite a unique album. While the music gets frantic once in a while, there are plenty of beautiful moments to be found as the album unfolds. Their guitarist offers some very tasty FRIPP-influenced riffs and he does a good job balancing the quirky piano lines. My only complaint is that most of the songs have traditional song-structures. The band confidently builds to what might seem like a climatic section, but instead choose to go back to an earlier verse or chorus. The tracks also tend to fade out just when the band starts cooking. Overall, though, FESTA MOBILE are definitely worth searching out.
