SKU 33-EMI 3598263
This is a beautiful, numbered, limited edition of 889 copies of this classic, which is part of the Prog Rock Italia series - mastered from the original tapes on 180 gram vinyl in a beautiful sleeve.
First of two albums by this Italian instrumental fusion quartet consisting of two brothers on dual keyboards (lots of electric and acoustic piano, analog synths, etc.) with bass and drums.
This little gem is from 1976 and may be comparable to a more electric piano heavy Weather Report from a couple of years earlier. A really nice fusion disc from the right era!

"Yet another 'out of time' band from the glorious golden season of Italian progressive rock, Il Baricentro - a name that does not coincidentally reveals the musicians' origins (Bari/center, Puglia) - were founded in the mid-'70s by brothers Francesco and Vanni Boccuzzi, out from the ashes of Festa Mobile.
The debut "Sconcerto" saw the light in 1976: a beautiful instrumental jazz-rock LP, in which keyboards dominate over every other instrument. Despite the season of punk, new wave and disco music standing right behind the corner, the album is firmly anchored to the warm sound of the early '70s; already at the time Baricentro were often compared with Weather Report and Return to Forever, but there's a strong difference in their Mediterranean flavour, the one that has made many Italian prog productions unique, "Sconcerto" included."
