Alvaro Jumbo Fella & Consorzio Acqua Potabile - Coraggio E Mistero album review
Tales of mystery from an Italian prog team-up
Italian prog legends unite! Coraggio E Mistero sees eccentric vocalist/performer Alvaro ‘Jumbo’ Fella teaming up with 1970s collective Consorzio Acqua Potabile, and the results are brain-melting. The problem, at least for us uneducated Brits, is that all the lyrics are in Italian. Moreover, Alvaro’s singing style is extremely overwrought. This does somewhat detract from the music, which at its best is a compelling amalgam of Jethro Tull and Focus.
