Aldo Tagliapietra - L'Aangelo Rinchiuso

For those in the know Aldo was bass player with renowned Italian prog band Le Orme. Along with Premiata Forneria Marconi and Banco del Mutuo Soccorso, defined progressive rock in Italy during the 70's. This new solo album is the second since Aldo left the reinvigorated Le Orme back in 2009. Sporting a gorgeous Paul Whitehead cover (of Genesis and VdGG fame) this seems to be a concept album with all the tracks interlinking. It is a gorgeous sounding album. Typically Italian symphonic, very melodic with great vocals by Aldo. Its not heavy prog or too demanding actually, but the Italians were masters of beautifully flowing, symphonic prog and this solo is a prime example.



  1. Hi Barry - no doubt you'll have seen this - sound quality not great but gives a good idea of the musical style...

    Of course after about five minutes I was lured away by Kiss live in Zurich LOL

  2. Cheers for the link David. I hadn't seen it. Good to see someone playing a double neck again!
