Artist: Arti & Mestieri (www.artiemestieri.it)
Title: Tilt-Immagini per un orecchio (Images for an Ear)
Label: Akarma Records (www.cometrecords.com)
Genre: Progressive-Rock
Format: 180-Gram Vinyl LP
Release Date: 2001/1974

Compared to their Italian progressive rock contemporaries PFM and American based groups like Mahavishnu Orchestra, Arti & Mestieri were an excellent but overlooked band. These Italian purveyors of prog-rock deserve further consideration as "Tilt" proves to be an archetypal interpretation of a sound that was still in the developmental stages at the time.

In very small-italicized print underneath the album's bold title are the words Immagini per un orecchio, translated it means "Images for an ear." I find that very insightful as I am always saying how good instrumental music has the ability to create images inside my head, thus eliminating the need for vocals.

This was the group's first release in 1974. For a maiden voyage into the world of recorded music, they faired quite well. Although they use vocals sparingly, they really did not need them at all. Their music was very visually stimulating. By using all of their talents to their fullest capacity, a pleasing mixture of keyboards, guitars, bass, percussion, violins, saxophone, clarinet, and vibraphone became part of their final creation. Because they used so many different instruments, their music gradually pushed itself to another level of complexity, in so doing it transformed their compositions into progressive quests that were a captivating treat for your ears and mind.

As per usual, the 180-Gram vinyl LP format never lacks for sound and quality.
