New lineup and new, fourth album from this perennial, nearly all- instrumental favorite from Italy, who have been gracing us with excellent albums for a full decade now!
All of their releases are top tier and this latest has a slightly changed sound (no bassist for one thing) and remains completely top tier. Totally recommended!

"'Violated Intact' is the fourth Accordo dei Contrari album, one of the most authoritative and Admired Italian progressive jazz formations in the world. Born in Bologna in 2001. Between 2007 and 2014, the band has released three albums and has played in Numerous Italian and foreign festivals. The band, inspired by a renewed commitment, the desire to explore new territories and to deepen the elements of the instrumental formula, three years away from the previous "AdC" album, EXPANDS its sound to rock, jazz and music: The result is an album Consisting of eleven long and adventurous tracks. Recorded live in the studio with minimized overdubs and mastered by the great Udi Koomran , it raises the mastery and uniqueness of the band, one of the most fascinating and original formations of the European landscape."

Average Rating

There are 1000's of really good recordings that put an avant twist on elements of jazz, rock and classical music. This isn't one of them. This is way better than really good! Bands like Area and Deus ex Machina may scramble the neurons in a similar way at times, but there's no way this is redundant by comparison. The recording quality, the ideas and execution from all the musicians is apex poop...should provide a much need jolt to even the most jaded of Waysiders
