"The avant pop Aria is the first album from Sorrenti. Originally released in 1972 on Harvest, it opens with the long title track, which occupied all of side A of the original vinyl. It's a dreamy suite that starts with acoustic guitar, ends with a remarkable violin solo from future Mahavishnu Orchestra member Jean Luc Ponty and features the incredible instrument-like voice of Sorrenti. Creating a blend of folk renderings with a melodic, avant-garde jazz backdrop, Sorrenti has rendered a vocal tapestry on par with anything Van Morrison or Tim Buckley has committed to tape."
