Read "L.A. Strictly Confidential" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Don Preston / Jeff Boynton / Philip Mantione: TriAngular Bent

Read "TriAngular Bent" reviewed by Dave Wayne

A lot of artists Don Preston's age, with a similar musical pedigree, are revered as “national treasures."

Andrea Centazzo Mandala Ictus Records Valutazione: 3,5 stelle «The creative label for creative music since 1976» recita il motto della Ictus Records, e una volta di più il concetto risulta pienamente centrato sull'operazione di Andrea Centazzo e il suo Mandala, progetto articolato sia in forma sonora che visuale e perciò necessitante di un supplemento di discussione.
