Eraldo Bernocchi: Like A Fire That Consumes All Before It

Read "Like A Fire That Consumes All Before It" reviewed by John Ephland

RareNoise is one of those labels, one of those rare (no pun intended) labels, where format and style have become irrelevant. A recent sampling of the soon-to-be historic label should suffice in telling their ongoing musical odyssey. Pit one against the other: 2018's Anguish, featuring among others, Nordic phenom Mats Gustafsson in a wild-haired hoedown of ...

Naked Truth: Avian Thug

Read "Avian Thug" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

Avian Thug is this multinational quartet's third release and was recorded in England after the completion of a 2013 tour and offers more of the band's explorative powers, intimating similes of treks into mysterious galactic corridors. Comparisons to the electric Miles Davis era and so on are in order, but this unit gels to heavyweight cadences ...

Lorenzo Feliciati: Koi

Read "Koi" reviewed by Claudio Bonomi

Lorenzo Feliciati colpisce ancora. L'ormai noto bassista, compositore e produttore cresciuto a Led Zeppelin e Jaco Pastorius arriva alla sua sesta prova discografica, dopo i due album con i Naked Truth (in compagnia di Pat Mastelotto e Roy Powell), il lavoro da solista Frequent Flyer, Beserk! insieme a Lorenzo Esposito Fornaciari e il convincente Twinscapes in ...

Berserk!: Berserk!

Read "Berserk!" reviewed by Jeff Dayton-Johnson

Bassist Lorenzo Feliciati is the driving force behind Naked Truth, whose Ouroboros (RareNoise, 2012), featuring trumpeter Graham Haynes, is an invigorating sonic slab of post-Miles Davis post-jazz-rock. Feliciati and vocalist Lorenzo Esposito Fornasari here convene a coterie of like-minded post-everything musicians to go Berserk!

The hybrid music they make takes Naked Truth as a starting ...

Naked Truth: Ouroboros

Read "Ouroboros" reviewed by Jeff Dayton-Johnson

With apologies to the late guitarist Pete Cosey (who led a band by the name), the members of Naked Truth are bona fide “children of Agharta." That is, the group--led by bassist-guitarist Lorenzo Feliciati--has absorbed and adapted the lessons of trumpeter Miles Davis's exhausting, tectonic live recording Agharta (Columbia, 1975) so well that Davis' disc can ...

Naked Truth: Ouroboros

Read "Ouroboros" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

A poco più di un anno dall'uscita di Shizaru, i Naked Truth di Lorenzo Feliciati ritornano in pista. Questa volta insieme al bassista e compositore romano, oltre ai già sperimentati Pat Mastelotto alla batteria e Roy Powell alle tastiere, c'è l'ottimo Graham Haynes alla cornetta che rimpiazza il trombettista di origine vietnamite Cuong Vu. Dicevamo ottimo non per un improvviso ...

Naked Truth: Shizaru

Read "Shizaru" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Naked Truth, la nuda verità è che dietro questo nome si nasconde una sorta di improbabile supergruppo. Lorenzo Feliciati è di casa presso molti dei più importanti artisti pop (e non solo) italiani (Niccolò Fabi, Tiromancino, Agostino Marangolo, Irene Grandi,..). Pat Mastellotto è stato batterista degli ultimi King Crimson, Roy Powell ha prestato i servigi delle proprie tastiere ...

Naked Truth: Shizaru

Read "Shizaru" reviewed by Lawrence Peryer

Naked Truth is the brain child of Italian bassist Lorenzo Feliciati, who has made a name for himself throughout Europe since 2005 as both a leader and collaborator. Feliciati has said that Naked Truth came from his desire to create a band where “each voice is equal and contributes to the musical conversation," and where no ...
