An evening of superb Italian Progressive Music

Review
Set in the rather small but (seemingly) acoustically perfect "Trianon Theatre", on October 24th 2012, Osanna returned to their hometown roots of Naples to perform a concert of totally splendid Italian progressive rock music. This concert was captured on film and has been lovingly re-produced in the form of a DVD which is the subject of this review. The only surviving member of the original 70s Osanna lineup is front-man vocalist / acoustic guitarist Lino Vairetti but around him now has been assembled a very fine set of top class musicians. Osanna have, from their inception, been known for the mix of theatrical drama with their musical output and whilst the long Bohemian attire of their past no longer feature as part of their stage costume the bright and colourful face painting certainly is. Of course the marked exception is Lino Vairetti himself resplendent, for awhile, in some kind of bright red military uniform as he kicks off the proceedings. The concert itself is divided into two halves. Part One is entitled 'Songs' and comprises a selection of their older material and in which a host of guest musicians join the band on stage. Notable amongst these are Balletto Di Bronzo's keyboard player and vocalist Gianni Leone, former Van Der Graaf Generator saxophonist and flute player David Jackson, former King Crimson violinist and keyboard player David Cross. Part Two also entitled 'Songs' and in which the band is joined on stage by a mini string section. The whole show is fast moving and colourful with wonderful musicianship throughout combining natural talent and technical aptitude. The Lino and Irvin Vairetti (father and son) partnership is particularly thrilling to watch and certainly the charisma of Lino has been fully transferred to his son Irvin and they combine their vocalizing wonderfully well together. But that is not all, there is so much more to extol about, for example, I was totally transfixed by the brilliance of guitarist Poko Capobianco and saxophonist David Jackson as they frequently switched lead roles. There are far too many highlights with the guest musicians to fully describe but one or two stand out as being really special: the duet "There Will Be Time" featuring Lino Vairetti and Giampiero Ingrassia is truly wonderful, magical in fact, plus to add to the beauty of the moment the guitar solo during this song as it breaks through is totally majestic. I would also highlight the spot in the show featuring Gianni Leone on keyboards which is very special indeed.
The second DVD in the set, entitled "Osanna Story" comprises a historic compilation of live TV clips from 1971 to 1978.

Summary: This DVD is a recording of Osanna in concert together with a whole host of guest musicians. The whole package is a superb treat for all progressive fans but even more so for those interested in the wonderfully melodic and symphonic inclined field of Italian progressive music. The show itself is fast moving, colourful and extremely entertaining.

Artwork and Packaging: The entire DVD package is beautifully presented and contains a superb booklet crammed with information and details of the concert

That's what they say about us...

SoniaMota150

All bands/artists and all moozik aficionados, if you have not joined Planet Of Prog on their fb page yet you might want to join them here too. They are unbiased, very honest sharing the music from the greats to the indie starting artists and what I love the most about them, there is no negativity (you'll not find any pompous selfrightous know it all full of know better and how sermons on their reviews) no matter who you are, all their reviews the bands are treated with utmost dignity even if the review is not most favorable, that review will be honest, not pompous and most in awe respectful of the artist's efforts. I love them, love this site. Join if you want to,I like them a lot!
