Berserk!

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. Is it rock? Is it jazz? Is it ambient, avant garde, opera or something else? Regardless of tags, the music that Feliciati and Fornasari make together as Berserk! on their self-titled debut stands an imposing manifesto. It is an iron fist upside the head of complacency. With the two Lorenzo's at the core of this formidable collective, they brought...

Ouroboros

Ouroboros is Naked Truth‘s second release for RareNoise. Recorded in part in Bill Laswell‘s studio in Orange under the watchful eye of engineer James Dellatacoma, produced by Lorenzo Feliciati and mixed by Bill Laswell, Ouroboros sees the wonderful Graham Haynes replacing Cuong Vu on Cornet, as the band, formed by Lorenzo Feliciati on bass, Roy Powell (of InterStatic) on Hammond, Fender Rhodes and prepared piano and Pat Mastelotto (of Stickmen and King Crimson) on acoustic and electronic percussion. Ouroboros gains in intensity compared to its predecessor whilst maintaining its musicality. The result is a mindblowing trip through jazz-rock, psychedelia and electric jazz, ideally bridging the worlds of 70’s Miles Davis and King Crimson.   Graham Haynes:...

Frequent Flyer

Frequent Flyer is the first solo effort for RareNoise by Italian bass (and guitar!) maestro Lorenzo Feliciati, who is also founder of Jazz-Rock ensemble Naked Truth. It documents the peregrinations of a restless and ultra-creative music soul, at ease both when innovating and playing the bass - Jaco Pastorius and beyond - when composing and re-arranging classics of Jazz and Progressive Rock (Footprints by Wayne Shorter and Thela Hun Ginjeet by King Crimson spring to mind) and when organising collaborations of the highest calibre – the list of guests on Frequent Flyer is a who’s who of modern instrumental music, from Bob Mintzer to Pat Mastelotto to Cuong Vu to Roy Powell to...

Holy Abiss

Holy Abyss is a collaborative effort between guitarist/composer Joel Harrison and bassist/composer Lorenzo Feliciati. Joining them are trumpeter Cuong Vu, Roy Powell on Hammond B-3 organ and piano, and Dan Weiss on drums. A masterful electric jazz outing from five great players, this group personifies the worldwide nature of jazz today. Joel Harrison grew up in D.C., moved to the west coast in the late 80s and moved to New York City in the mid 90s where he still resides. Lorenzo Feliciati lives in Rome, Italy but travels the world and has collaborated with Pat Mastelotto (King Crimson), Bob Mitzer and Donovan and many others. Cuong Vu was born in Vietnam, lived for...

Prog X Primetal

VARGTON PROJEKT is a Swedish experimental progressive rock project consisting of Mats HEDBERG, Morgan ÅGREN and Björn JANSSON. The band started in 2006 after guitarist HEDBERG (BFH) got in touch with drummer ÅGREN (ZAPPA, MATS MORGAN BAND, FREDRIK THORDENDAL). The duo started recording in 2007 for what was meant to be an instrumental project but were later joined by metal vocalist Björn JANSSON (TEARS OF ANGER, RIDE THE SKY). The resulting album also featured guest appearances from KAIPA's keyboard player Hans LUNDIN, Giovanni Imparato (percussion), Alessandro GWIS (keyboards) and Lars Eric Mattsson (solo guitar). The 2011 debut album "ProgXpriMetal" covers a wide range of influences, spanning from dark heavy fusion (KING CRIMSON, MAHAVISHU...

Shizaru

Picture a post-apocalyptic world where isolated parties from remote parts the globe communicate with each other in empathy and harmony as they share common tales of struggle, survival and hope amid a bleak wasteland. Now imagine the soundtrack of this scenario and you've got a grasp on the groundbreaking music of Naked Truth. The quartet's riveting eight-track debut, Shizaru draws from such sources as Miles Davis's Bitches Brew, Bill Laswell, King Crimson (of which Mastelotto is an active member), avant-jazz, free-jazz, prog-rock and art-rock. What makes it wholly unique, however, is the unit's creativity and chemistry and what Feliciati calls a "horizontal" approach to the music. He offers, "My intention was to have...
