|Genre||Progressive / Neoprog / RIO|
|Omschrijving||Put your belts on, dear listeners, for one of the
most crazy and multi-faceted records that the
Italian music scene has recently given birth to.
Baba Yoga is, in fact, practically impossible to
categorize, if not with a long list of the music
genres it contains: from country-blues to
progressive rock, from folk to songwriting, from
popular ballads to oriental music, from funk to
neo-prog, with occasional additions of electronic
music, all of this and even more can be found in 53
minutes of "L`uomo progressivo".
Behind the Baba Yoga monicker - an intentional
misspelling of the 1973 movie title "Baba Yaga",
based on the adventures of Guido Crepax`s comic
book character Valentina - hide the two authors
Gianfranco Salvatore, who in particular
collaborated with jazzman Steve Lacy in the `80s
and `90s, and Danilo Cherni, Antonello Venditti`s
keyboard player for the last 30 years and,
recently, also part of the Goblin Rebirth line-up.
While music is here an excellent pout-pourri of
genres, the Italian lyrics are ironic, desecrating,
surreal, but also provocative and reflective. On
the visual aspect, the artwork of the album is
fulfilled with verious beautiful paintings by
contemporary artist Vincenzo Faraldo.
To record this album, the two main authors have
invited a long series of guests, many of whom come
from the Italian progressive rock scene of the `70s
- Vittorio Nocenzi (Banco del Mutuo Soccorso),
Luciano Regoli ( Return Receipt), Peppe Servillo
(Avion Travel), Fabio Pignatelli (Goblin), Alvaro
Fella (Jumbo), Lino Vairetti (Osanna), Derek Wilson
(historical drummer of many artists of the prog
scene since the early `70s) - for an unusual,
daring and unique result.
