Jazz-Rock from Italy, with some Mediterranean/Balkan sensibility and great takes on old-style ballroom dance music. A sax-based quintet traversing the Funk-Rock-FreeJazz space, and does a mighty good job at it. Lots of fun. |
1. Funk-Rock-Jazz. Starts with noises and then the sax enters.
*2. Fast, tense, repetitive sax bakbone with great bass and guitar bits. The last part of this piece is a beautiful free jazz mayhem.
*3. Slow, spacey electronic noises opening to a nice guitar’n’sax piece.
*4. A nice take on old-style cha cha cha.
*5. B movie space noises lead to a funky piece 80-ish Jazz piece based on old-style dance music.
6. Mid-tempo cha-cha-cha. Slows down 1:30 min into the track and relaxes into a nice bass solo, subsequently leading to mad talking in Italian and other noises and back to the main sax cha-cha-cha.
*7. A great dramatic Sax opening to a nice cha-cha-cha (guitar solo 4 min into the track)
8. Quieter and moody, scattered drumming and strings in the background and trippy noises joining later. Becomes structured midway with the typical sax work.
