Carsten Pieper Well, more than 30 years after their foundation this Italian masters apparently still have been doing their homework . Another example of why I was a complete fool to ignore il rock progressivo italiano for much to long...
This concert focusses on their first two records but newer material is included as well. Hard to pick a favourite because they all belong together (they start by playing the complete first half of their debut as a big suite thing). Favorite track: Gravitá.

about

A superb outing from the renowned seven-piece Italian progressive music legends. Captured live in Kawasaki and Tokyo, during the Japan tour in June of 2005, this lengthy 76-minute epic release features most of the material from their two highly-regarded cult albums, "Tilt" and "Giro Di Valzer Per Domani" (with several more recent compositions included, also).Driven by the spectacular insane drumming of Furio Chirico (whose style has been often compared to Billy Cobham) and magnificent analog keyboards of maestro Beppe Crovella, this album abounds with beautiful violin passages, killer sax lines, wonderful guitar work, robust bass and challenging vocals.In the vein of Mahavishnu Orchestra, Return To Forever, Mothers Of Invention, mid '70s Soft Machine, King Crimson and Gong, this release will please their many longtime fans and serve to win over new ones."... First Live in Japan is a monumental live recording, showing that this veteran band has not lost a step whatsoever. Highest Recommendations here folks!“ ***** -Peter Pardo, Sea Of Tranquillity
