IQ concert (X-mas Bash), Poppodium Boerderij, Zoetermeer
Door de Brexit komen titels die uit de UK afkomstig zijn nog altijd
met vertraging binnen. Soms valt het mee en duurt het slechts 2-3
weken, maar het komt helaas ook voor dat we 4 weken of meer moeten
wachten. We doen ons best om alles zo goed en snel mogelijk te
regelen, maar het blijft lastig...
|Omschrijving||Prog Band from Italy, Acqua Fragile, fifty years
after the first album by the same name in 1973,
comes out with a brand new work, an album with
totally original songs, entitled: “MOVING
FRAGMENTS”. Confirming the salient characteristics
of A F style - vocal harmonies, odd tempo
signatures, romanticism, aggression, theatricality
and research - some new features and significant
developments embellish this new album. The three
original members of the band Piero Canavera/drums,
percussion and vocals, Franz Dondi/bass, Bernardo
Lanzetti/lead vocals, guitar and Glovox, are
joined in by Stefano Pantaleoni/keyboards, Claudio
Tuma/guitars and the vocalist Rossella Volta, all
previously together on stage in live adventures,
over the past two years.
Nine songs of which five in English, one
instrumental and three in Italian. Developing the
mode experimented in A F previous work, “A New
Chant”, released In 2017, there are numerous guest
musicians including one British and one American.
In three songs, Bernardo Lanzetti`s creative motor
is fueled by the contribution of keyboardist and
composer Stefano Pantaleoni.
The production is entrusted to Dario Mazzoli,
already a partner of Lanzetti in various
adventures in the recording studio, including his
latest solo album "Horizontal Rain" (2021).
In detail, hereʼs the CD track list.

Pantaleoni/B.lanzetti). Guest Gigi Cavalli Cocchi

band`s brand new logo.

8. “Il Suono Della Voce” (B.Lanzetti)
9. “Limerence Ethereal” (B.Lanzetti). Guest Sergio
All guest musicians have militancy or knowledge of
the Progressive Rock genre. The presence of Stef
Burns who, in a concert with his Rock Trio, did
positively strike Bernardo, is quite interesting.
Of course, famous for his collaboration with
Italian Big Star Vasco Rossi, Stef mentioned a
previous period of research very close to Prog.
“White Horse On Dope”, the song featuring Mr.Burns
on electric guitar, could be described as “Hard
Rock in odd time” on which vocal harmony, in pure
Acqua Fragile style, produces an eery effect.
“Black Drone” makes use of the total contribution
of the horns of David Jackson, legendary player
with Van Der Graaf Generator and frequent visitor
to Italy. Once taken in all parts of the
arrangement submitted by Bernardo, David went so
far as to perform EVERYTHING!. Among the songs in
Italian it is worth mentioning “IA Intelligenza
Artificiale”, where the vocalist Rossella has two
short solo parts, as the song was written three
years ago, before the topic became so everyday. |
