IL VOLO, AN ITALIAN JEWEL


IL VOLO, UN SUPERGRUPO DE MÚSICOS DE ESTUDIO, GRABÓ ÚNICAMENTE DOS ÁLBUMES, DOS MARAVILLAS QUE NO PUEDEN FALTAR EN NINGUNA COLECCIÓN DE PROGRESIVO ITALIANO. MÁS MELÓDICOS QUE PFM, BANCO O LE ORME, PERO CON EL MISMO ESPÍRITU PRECIOSISTA Y VIRTUOSO. IMPRESCINDIBLES.

Usually described as a "supergroup", IL VOLO was a studio band formed by very popular musicians all coming from famous bands: Alberto Radius and Gabriele Lorenzi from FORMULA TRE, Mario Lavezzi from FLORA FAUNA CEMENTO and Camaleonti, Bob Callero from OSAGE TRIBE and DUELLO MADRE, Gianni Dall'Aglio from RIBELLI, along with composer Vince Tempera who also had his own band PLEASURE MACHINE. With such a pedigree it's obvious that both albums are very well played, and enjoyable but not memorable, lacking originality. An obvious similarity with FORMULA TRE is evident, along with a certain jazz-rock feel present throughout both albums, whose only distinctive element is the voice, missing on "Essere O Non Essere?" The group disbanded soon after the second release. Very good (somewhat jazz) fusion melodic symphonic with also very interesting percussion, keyboards, as nicely balanced music. The first Italian album from 1974, their music is built upon two keyboards with great vocals and lush arrangements. Close to PFM or BANCO by the vocals parts and the beauty of the themes and to E.L.P. by the instrumental virtuosity. Their second "Essere O Non Essere" is a classic item of mostly instrumental music with some theme more soft and some majesties keyboards flights a la KING CRIMSON. It's one of the easiest Italian progressive items. • Text by PROG ARCHIVES

El sinfónico italiano nació casi a la par que el progresivo británico y aunque muchos crean que es un producto derivado del estilo anglosajón, podría decirse que las influencias son en realidad más bien mínimas.
Grupos como PFM o Banco fueron comparados en su momento con ELP, más por la publicidad que montó la Manticore Records que por otra cosa.
La escucha activa que permite el paso del tiempo y las ya innumerables horas de audición a través de los años, nos muestran que Italia creó y sigue teniendo un estilo progresivo propio, nada que ver con el resto de los países europeos que se apuntaron en los 70 a los encantos de la pérfida Albión.
Hoy dia en la red puedes encontrar una cantidad ingente de bandas italianas como Il Volo que pasaron desapercibidas y grabaron, como en este caso, pocos discos, pero de una calidad excepcional. La mayoría de los músicos italianos de ayer y hoy vienen del mundo académico clásico, del folk autóctono y del jazz o la música contemporánea. El nivel casi siempre es alto y su música sumamente interesante.
Para gente musicalmente curtida y poco recomendable para los adictos a las fruslerías y superficialidades del neoprogresivo.

Un saludo.
