4 stars The best description for MAXOPHONE I could give is that they sound like an Italian Peter GABRIEL meets a classical jazz influenced progressive rock group. That sounds different now doesn't it? Well, it is very unique and refreshingly different. This self-titled LP was originally recorded in 1975 and has been reissued by the esteemed Akarma Records label in a perfected 180-gram vinyl format, complete with picturesque gatefold sleeves and black and white pictures of the group at work in the studio.

With a rich blend of every instrument imaginable in the spectrum of jazz and classical music, this group provided a progressive all encompassing musical cornucopia with dreamy Italian vocalizations. Don't worry if you cannot translate the foreign tongue, you will understand it. I wasn't at all deterred from enjoying this because of the language barrier. The music was simply wonderful. To think that this was recorded back in1975 is amazing. This group comes from a long line of progressive Italian groups that have built a stronghold that has never crumbled, and the genre has continued on strongly to present day.

It's important to know and acknowledge all the contributors that have made a difference in their chosen styles and countries. MAXOPHONE made one classic and unforgettable album twenty seven years ago. This album offers orchestral progressive rock at its best.
