Those of you who bought TILT and thought jazz fushion couldn't get any better, hold on to your seats because you haven't heard Giro di valzer per domani, Arti+Mestieri's follow-up to TILT. The mood of the album is set perfectly with the title track on the first cut-upbeat, upbeat, and very tough and tight. As on TILT, Furio Chirico is all over this album; he begins on the quick speed and never drops below fast. It's a true marvel to hear this kind of energy sustained over an entire album. Each musician has their chance to sparkle here. The guitar-violin interplay is breathtaking. The sax solos are just as dizzying as on TILT, especially with Aria Pesante. This album has more of a seventies feel. Dada has been cashed in for more of a disco-funk, but this in no way has resulted in the band losing its heart. Rather, this music should strengthen the heart of anybody open-minded enough the give it a listen.

Arti & Mestieri was a great Italian fusion/prog group on the Cramps label. This was the same label as Area. If you like Area, but disliked their politics, Arti & Mestieri would be the band to choose, as they didn't appear to be a political band. Of course, there are difference from Area. They realize they'd never have a vocalist on the league of Demetrio Stratos, so they had more conventional vocals. Plus they also had a violin player, and Mellotron, something Area never used.

1975's Giro di Valzer per Domani was Arti & Mestieri's second album and what an album it is! It's less proggy than Tilt with a stronger fusion feel, and Beppe Crovella's Mellotron use seemed to have vanished, even if he's still credited to using one. I found it a bit strange the band decided to add on a new vocalist, Gaza Gianfranco, as he only sings on three cuts, and vocals were already present on Tilt. Once again, Furio Chirico gives some totally mindblowing drumming, where Beppe Crovella tends more on the piano (both electric and standard) on this album, while the synths are more low key, and what might sound like a Mellotron on this album was actually the Eminent 310 (he also used the Eminent on Tilt, but the Mellotron was used too). Let's not forget the violin work from Giovanni Vigliar, guitar from Gigi Venegoni, the sax and clarinets from Arturo Vitale, and bass from Marco Gallesi. Many fusion acts (including some major American acts I won't mention) tend to show off their chops at the expense of the music, and yes, this group can play fast (especially Furio Chirico), they also never forget to include some great themes and songs to go with it. Yes, the pieces are all short, but they didn't sell out, and still stick to making great fusion and prog.

Having owned A&M's first album "Tilt" for many years I was quite interested to hear this second album to see how the two compare. For starters, I find the first album a far "proggier" affair (though "Tilt" is still essentially a fusion album with prog leanings and NOT the other way around, as asserted in several of the other reviews). And after a half dozen spins I still prefer "Tilt" to "Giro" for one simple reason: drummer/bandleader Furio Chirico simply overwhelms the rest of the band on "Giro" and dominates the album to such an extent that it is sometimes hard to concentrate on the compositions themselves. Please don't get me wrong: Mr. Chirico is an AMAZING drummer with near-unparallelled technique. But on some level I actually find myself trying to tune him out when I listen to "Giro" because he seems to never let up from the moment the first tune begins right up until the final fade-out. My brother felt the same way, likening him to a hyper-active Billy Cobham with perhaps less feel for the concept of playing as a "band" than Mr. Cobham. Other reviewers quite obviously don't feel the same way, and there is certainly nothing wrong with their assessment of the recording. It is simply a matter of personal taste as to whether one wants to hear a drummer with his foot on the accelerator the entire way. I can't help but wonder if Mr. Chirico hadn't actually been the band's leader, if the rest of the band would have felt that he was "over-playing" or over-stepping his role within band. To my ears, I would have preferred that he tone down his presence a bit just to let the other outstanding musicians breathe from time to time. Nevertheless, I still highly recommend this album to any fusion fan and particularly to aspiring drummers who would like to hear one of the world's greatest at their craft.

I was really surprised to find that no one had reviewed this brilliantly conceived, aesthetically gratifying album. Having been a follower of progressive music for over ten years, I have become acquainted with many of the fine Italian progressive bands as a matter of course. And of these bands, Arti E Mestieri is perhaps the best. From a compositional standpoint, this particular album is top drawer, and the band members are remarkably proficient at their respective instruments. This album is definitely in keeping with some of the progessive trends of the day, but it holds up well over time; the listener isn't put off by a no-longer-in-vogue progressive compositional emphasis. It is certainly reminiscent of some of the fusion releases of the mid 1970's; the percussion work, for example, at times reminds me of Narada Michael Walden's work with the Mahavishnu Orchestra. But this album is unique. The songs are structurally and compositionally complicated, to be sure. For example, the meldoies are not the sort you will be whistling along with from memory after a few listens. And some of the chord progessions and changes are rather sophisticated. However, although a high understanding of music might be necessary to fully appreciate this masterpiece, immense enjoyment can be derived from it all the same by an open minded lover of music who is willing to be patient and wear his thinking cap. I highly recommend this album to people who don't relegate their enjoyment of music to dancing.
One final note: The singing is entirely in Italian, but this doesn't faze me at all, even though I don't understand Italian. I simply treat the vocals as another instrument. Also, if you like this album, you'll like "Tilt" too; it's just as good.
