about

this title is OUT OF STOCK !!!

D.F.A. alias Duty Free Area is the second release
of this fantastic jazz fusion band from Italy.

Issued in 1999 , was immediatly accepted
by the listeners and music media as one
of the most accomplished jazz fusion albums
of the '90's, not only from Italy but in Europe in general.

The album has lengthy tracks, 4 out of 6 , very complex,
with top notch musicianship, great ideas,
every single track is excellent in its own way,
providing in the end a whole new dimensions
in jazz fusion realm.

The band manage to combine very efficient
jazz fusion with some space rock elements
not far from Ozric Tentacles in their heyday,
making a very special atmosphere where
the organ and keyboards have an important role..

The pretty good idea of how great this record is is
by just listening to the opening track Escher,
simply brilliant from start to finish, lengthy track
with a lots of twists and turns, musicians are
simply shining here.

There is also besides instrumental pieces,
some with vocal offered by some guest like
on Esperanto, featurig Deux Ex machina
vocalist Alberto Piras, another great tune
with a lot to offer.

So, easily one of the most as I said accomplished
jazz fusion albums, with great performance and
stunning ideas.

All listeners of the genre and including
progressive rock fans must take some
spins of this album, worth it for sure.
