TONI ESPOSITO-GENTE DISTRATTA, LP, 1977, ITALY





Lyrical and airy Italian fusion with a certain akin to Napoli Centrale. Not quite solid (some of it's a mite too sweet tempered for it's own good), but there's nevertheless much here to cheerfully endorse, most notably some spectacular and intricate percussion work from Esposito on steel drums, xantur and marimba (often wetly effected) that helps shepherd these jams to a very lofty place indeed, never more so than on "Xantur" and the title track.
