Cometa Rossa
5 stars I don't want to write as much as I've written for "Chernobyl 7991". But as I think this is still my favourite AREA album, I should "praise" it here.

No Paolo Tofani on this one (was he already heading for India to get lost there?) and at least I don't miss him on these takes.. Nice trombone sections by one of the meanwhile best hidden bass champions, Ares Tavolazzi; his acoustic bass was as perceivably present as Stanley Clarke's at those times (OK, Clarke conquered the scene 2-4 years earlier). And he was playing a remarkable fretless electric bass, which he started before Jaco became famous for that. Demetrio, Patrizio and Gulio, well, AREA are at their best. Perhaps even better, already somehow matured, than in the years before.

By the way: whether Demetrio and Jaco are playing together "up there"? Being members of the orchestra of the irreplaceables?

Cometa Rossa | 5/5 |
