Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
After reading several reviews of this 1974 album that each breathlessly declared the drummer to be extremely fast I came very close to not buying it. After all, I value ensemble work above all else and abhor grandstanding in my progressive rock. In spite of it all however, I bought a copy, popped it in the player, and my fears swiftly dissolved as I listened intently to this somewhat jazz/rock fusion-ish progressive rock. What greeted my ears was intricate ensemble playing; great synthesizer parts; excellent vocals (in Italian); virtuosic soloing and playing by all musicians (especially the guitarist); and soft, plaintive woodwind, violin, and mellotron parts. The compositions are superb and display hints of Starless and Bible Black-period King Crimson here and there, with a little 74-75 Mahavishnu Orchestra thrown in for good measure. Apart from the more traditional prog rock pieces on the disc, the title track is distinct in that it just features the violin, mellotron, and ARP 2600. Oh and yes the drummer is quite good and emphasizes the top part of the kit in a manner similar to Michael Giles (King Crimson), Bill Bruford (Yes/King Crimson/U.K.), and Narada Michael Walden (Mahavishnu Orchestra). At points, there are some very impressive rave ups where the guitarist and the drummer are both going 100 miles an hour, with rapid fire and aggressive guitar soloing racing alongside a "head over your heels" delivery of snare buzzes and rolls, tom-tom fills, and unbelievably good hi-hat and cymbal work.Read more ›

Format: Audio CD
I'm not the biggest fusion fan out there, but I have discovered some great albums out there in that genre, from Herbie Hancock's more experimental works with Mwandishi (Crossings, Sextant), the German group Passport, the Quebecois group Sloche, not to mention the well-known British group Brand X (showing what Phil Collins could do outside Genesis, before embarking on his cheesy solo career), to the Italian group Area with the strange vocals of Demetrio Stratos. So I guess I do like fusion, but of course, the fusion I get after are the ones that show off their chops and that's basically it. Arti + Mestieri, like their labelmates Area managed to combine the best elements of prog and fusion and make it very interesting, with absolutely nothing on here I find boring! Tilt, released in 1974, was their debut album, released on the Cramps label, a label not interested in the commercial potential of the albums they released. Well, since Arti + Mestieri shares the same label as Area, it's hard not to make the comparison. But this group don't feature those strange vocals from Demetrio Stratos, but when vocals are used, it's more in the early PFM style. Unlike Area, they did not appear to be political, for those turned off by Area's communist-leaning politics. I am not too surprised both groups toured with each other given the same label they were on, and similar prog/fusion they played. Arti + Mestieri had no shartage of instruments here: guitar, sax, clarinet, bass, drums, ARP 2600 synthesizer, Mellotron, electric piano, and of course, the occasional vocals (in Italian). By far the thing that sticks out is the fast, busy, and furious drumming of Furio Chiroco (who was previously with another Italian prog band, The Trip). This guy will absolutely blow you away.Read more ›

This album is absolute ear candy for the first seven of eight tracks. The pace is breathtaking and playing as tight as most bands only dream to achieve. Much of the credit for this goes to Furio Chirico, perhaps one of the busiest drummers you will ever hear. The one sung track, "Strips" is a perfect example of how the band is able to bridge a breathy, cloudy gentleness of mood with the happy joyful chaos that swirls around most of the album. Another moment that will leave you breathless is the way In cammino Venegoni begins with an almost motionless sax solo and then slowly swirls around itself to a full take-off. What? You're still reading this, and you haven't bought TILT yet?

In this album you find the exceptional drums by Furio Chirico but also an excellent guitar and bass work, well supported by the keyboards... of course it's a 70's "ante-litteram" fusion prog, by means also of Soprano Sax and Violin, which create a well balanced compromise between the complex harmonies in the vein of Gentle Giant and the softer melodic lines more PFM oriented... these could be the right references,nevertheless They are not a derivative band and, on the opposite, their original style has been influencing a lot of jazz prog stuff for a long time in Italy !! Moreover their ante litteram fusion style sometimes reminds me of Weather Report, but -unlike W.R.and often Mahavishnu Orchestra-A.&M. have a symphonic edge of their own !!
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED AND BETTER THAN "GIRO DI VALZER ..."
