3 stars Recently I found the two albums of this italian band and immediatly I was captured by their heavy jazz fusion sound.

First AdB effort is an interesting collection of instrumental songs which reminds some of the most talented and great jazz-rock and even prog metal technical musicians. In fact, is a very technical album which passes through different moods and rhythmical adventures but always with an unique style totally recognizable. Perhaps is not a master piece of the genre, songs are really good, catchy and maybe too much heavy for the "classical" jazz-rock fans.

There are some highlights and totally recommended song for any prog lover, such as "Buc", "Vega" and "E GiÓ Colazione", perfect examples of great technicism, epical guitar and keyboard solos and for some moments, heavy prog metal mixed with jazzy sections. Very enjoyable but not essential. 3+*...
