3 stars This is a pretty good Jazz / Fusion album from Italy released in 1974. For me it's really lacking on dynamics, which is okay if they used a lot of atmosphere instead, but they don't. So the music sort of plods along changing slightly at times as it goes. I enjoy the vocals on the side long track but that's the only time we get to hear them.

"Il Ribelle Ubriaco" picks up before a minute with piano playing over top. It turns jazzier after 2 1/2 minutes. The guitar takes the lead 3 minutes in but it's brief. A calm with piano before 5 1/2 minutes. It kicks back in before 8 minutes. "Tramonto D'ottobre" is a short,mellow track with acoustic guitar and piano leading. "Esperanto" opens with piano as drums and bass join in. The song sort of meanders along aimlessly.

"L'ebete" is the side long suite. I really like the vocals here and the melancholic mood. It picks up 3 1/2 minutes in. A calm after 5 minutes with synths. Guitar before 6 1/2 minutes. It settles a minute later. A change before 11 minutes as piano and drums lead. Guitar before 12 1/2 minutes. Good sound here.Guitar stops after 14 minutes as bass, drums and piano play in a relaxed way. Guitar is back after 15 minutes. It picks up 16 1/2 minutes in with piano out front. A catchy way to end it.

Good album but not great.
