3 stars 3.5 stars really

Accordo dei Contrari is a well known and respected progressive/jazz rock band from Italy with two albums in their pockets so far. Kublai is the second offer released in 2011 and is to my ears a winning one. I like that the album is quite diverse in compositions, from jazz rock passages to prog rock elements added and even some canterbury moments are present, we have here on L'ombra di un sogno the famous Richard Sinclair who sings, the song being dedicated to his dog who just passed away. The album is all instrumental minus the piece where Siclair are present with his voice . The opening track G.B. Evidence is excellent and sets the mood for what to come.Is an energic jazz rock tune with nice musicianship and great parts. Arabesque is a very intresting piece and as the title sugests has arabian atmosphere. All in all a good towards great album, I like it but I prefere for example other bands from Italy with same attitude and playing same type of prog jazz rock/fusion like The RedZen or Gran Torino, both bands being little more intresting for my taste then Accordo dei Contrari. 3.5 stars for Kublai.
