CITRINITI featuring Fabrizio Leo - Between The Music Latitude
Mascot M71972 (2006)

More jazz rock fusion from Mascot, and thankfully a lot less annoying than some that I’ve had to endure.

Remember those classical pieces that try to emulate thunderstorms? Well we get the fusion equivalent here, especially on the opener “Naked Words”. Imagine the funk music that once featured in 70s police shows (Starsky & Hutch in particular) and give it the Hurricane Katrina treatment. Guitar and bass lines both so complex that they almost conflict.

The occasional use of a chord (rather than constant soloing) makes a good difference, some the bassist could do with learning (someone plug his ass please).

The drum sound is also very harsh and up front, something that takes a lot of getting used to.

Good for what it is but perhaps of limited appeal.

* or **** depending on your tastes
