Significant band from Italy's golden prog era,LATTE E MIELE were formed in Genova by former ''I Giganti'' guitarist Marcello Giancarlo Dellacasa,featuring also the 16 years old (!) drummer Alfio Vitanza and keyboardist Oliviero Lacagnina.In 1972 LATTE E MIELE debuted with ''Passio Secumdum Mattheum'',an album with heavy classical influences.The band was actually following the vein of LE ORME and E.L.P.,though this work contains a strong amount of electric guitars.The atmosphere is quite dreamy,characterized by intense piano parts,beautiful organ work and obscure vocals,sometimes following a gospel-like model,other ones they appear in a ''background version''.There are also plenty of jazzy instrumental parts,featuring great percussion work by Vitanza and nice guitars by Dellacasa,but the main ingredient here is the Bach-like passages,based on guitar melodiers,ethereal vocals and classical keyboards with a succesful result.For anyone interested in the classical side of prog rock this is a must have,as LATTE E MIELE prooved to be a talented and challenging trio from their first ever release.
