Begun as an Italian jazz rock band in the '70s featuring Fiorenzo Michele Bonansone (keyboards, cello, vocals), Marco Di Castri (guitar, sax), Furio Di Castri (bass) and Enrico Grosso (drums), Dedalus released two albums in 1973 and 1974. In 2003 Bonansone decided to revive the spirit of Dedalus. Assisted by two classical musicians and a drummer with a thing for funky and african rhythms, he released "Nomos Apache Alpha" as the Bonansone Dedalus Group. Although "Premio Darwin" declared the album to be the best Italian prog-rock release of the year, the album is actually more rooted into modern classical music than rock. Electric and acoustic piano, flute, cello and trombone are the key elements of the album, which constitutes a stunning example of how a progressive approach can be achieved even without any rock element. This edition is packaged in a mini-LP sleeve.
