Humana Prog - Fiori Frutti Farfalle (mini-lp sleeve)

SKU 27-AMS 237
"38 years since the release of Maxophone’s "Al mancato compleanno di una farfalla" ("At a missed birthday of a butterfly"), the 'butterfly' is back with a 20 minutes prog suite in "HUMANA PROG - Fiori Frutti Farfalle", an album completely written, arranged and sung by Paolo Farina, the poet and musician who wrote the lyrics of the old Maxophone classic. This new project started with the discovery of an old audiotape recorded in '73 with some of his fellow musicians and friends containing a 16-minute demo track piece that was taken up and developed today.

The recording of the 20 minutes suite, "Fiori Frutti Farfalle", was attended by many musicians from Milan and Apulia, including a special appearance by Sergio Lattuada (keyboard player and composer of the new and old Maxophone). To underline the important contribution to the song given by Lele Battista, co-arranger, co-producer and multi-instrumentalist.

The second part of the disc features additional 6 tracks (all written by Farina between '72 and 73 and still unreleased so far) that were recorded in the summer of 2013 in Apulia. The last track of the CD "La ballata degli amici perduti" also features a string quartet.

Musically it is a wonderful and pastoral prog album, dreamy, elegant, and directly linked to the Italian tradition of the seventies, reminding names like Celeste, Locanda delle Fate, Pierrot Lunaire or Claudio Rocchi. Released as a papersleeve CD with a wonderful artwork by Matteo Guarnaccia."
