A concept album based on the life of the renowned fish, Koi features former Japan drummer Steve Jansen and current King Crimson drummer Pat Mastelotto along with pianist Alessandro Gwis, trumpeter Angelo Olivieri, saxophonist Nicola Alesini and a horn section consisting of trombonists Stan Adams and Pierluigi Bastioli and baritone saxophonist Duilio Ingrosso. A suite-like offering that intersperses mesmerising ambient interludes with full-blown prog-rock type anthems, Koi brilliantly showcases Feliciati’s composerly vision while highlighting his considerable chops on fretted and fretless electric basses.
Lorenzo Feliciati / Colin Edwin : Twinscapes
Arising out of the sheer joy of playing together, TWINSCAPES is the first recording that sees Australian born Colin Edwin (of Porcupine Tree and Metallic Taste Of Blood) and italian born Lorenzo Feliciati ofNaked Truth andBerserk! joining forces.
The two are joined in this adventure by Andi Pupato (of Nik Bärtsch’s Ronin) on various percussions, Nils Petter Molvaer on trumpet, David Jackson (of Van Der Graaf Generator) on saxophones and Roberto Gualdi (of italian prog stalwarts PFM).
The first-ever collaboration between Italian bassist-composer Lorenzo Feliciati and Italian vocalist-multi-instrumentalist-sonic provocateur Lorenzo Esposito Fornasari (aka LEF) defies easy categorization as it awakens the senses. At times darker than the Grim Reaper and heavier than the soundtrack for the Apocalypse, it can turn on a dime and swing insistently, or wail mournfully, or float mysteriously.
With the two Lorenzos at the core of this formidable collective, they brought in such potent and provocative voices as guitarist Eivind Aarset, trombonist Gianluca Petrella, alto saxophonist Sandro Satta, keyboardists Fabrizio Puglisi and Jamie Saft, and drummers Cristiano Calcagnile, Pat Mastelotto (Feliciati’s bandmate in Naked Truth) and Simone Cavina to enhance the proceedings.
