A gem of a record from pianist Renato Sellani
– and a set that cooks with all of the best energy of the Italian scene in the 70s! Like some other classics on the Carosello label, this record's got a vibe that mixes strong acoustic leads with a slight touch of electricity in the mix – not as in a fusion album, but just in the basslines from Julius Farmer, which often feel as if they're handled on an electrified version of the instrument, yet still with the straight ahead grooves you'd get from an acoustic bass! The sound makes for a great undercurrent to Sellani
's acoustic piano, especially when mixed with the sensitive drumming of Giancarlo Pillot – who helps the record move strongly through a warmly lyrical space. Titles include "Funky Billard", "A Nostro Modo", "Sete Di Bene", "Brother Man", and "Tribute To Someone".
