4 stars Material is not so abundant in Japan where I live this album announced from CRAMPS. The sensibility of Soft Machine and Alti E Mestieri might be able to be tasted a little as the taste though the taste of Jazz/Fusion is being consistently carried out by this band announced in 1978. It might be able to be said that this Bella Band is the one though a lot of bands touched off exist in the music of Jazz and Canterbury also as for Jazz/Prog Rock of Italy. The sound in which it feels it ..sweet sound.. has finished to the last minute consistently the Mediterranean sea that seems to be exactly Italy though the form of the Jazz combo is taken. The flow of "Promenade" ..flow exactly reminded of Alti E Mestieri.. has finished. Interplay on the way is indeed splendid. As for the sound that SAX player's Roberto Buoni began to spin, I felt the impression that an indeed soft impression was given and the sound like Wayne Shorter has mixed with Elton Dean only a little. "Porotopostrippa Sul Pero" that recalls AREA only a little because each member mixes the humour leads to easing the album. This band also feels that one property to which Italy gave birth and one treasure that splendidly digests the frame of Jazz and develops it. "Cipresso Violento" is a tune where Rhodes of the melody and Riccardo Cioni that Buoni is sweet sounds gently. It is ..tune with the anacatesthesia to feel Alti.. finished here. These Music will take off and I take off the hat the band in Italy that buries a lot. I also wish other people to enjoy these sounds.
