Enrico Gabrielli and the members of Junkfood have crossed several times in the past in a variety of contexts and collaborations, but never have the two entities been found under the same roof. The occasion is revealed thanks to the Festival HalloBigallo in 2014, dedicated to Piero Umiliani, inviting both to perform with the prayer to include some readings in personnel key from the repertoire of the Maestro. After that pleasant experience, Junkfood and Gabrielli agreed to meet at the Vacuum Studio of Bruno Germano in Bologna. Italian Masters is dedicated to the figures of some of the greatest Italian composers of film scores. The result exceeds expectations: the beautiful music of Umiliani, Morricone and Trovajoli are distorted and filtered by the sensitivity of the five, while maintaining their unmistakable identity. What is most striking is the incredible consistency throughout despite the different authorship of the compositions and wide range of situations and solutions the musicians themselves bring into the music. The quintet succeed in the difficult task of standing comparison to models and simultaneously developing their own poetic and independent sound, making Italian Masters a real gem not only for the fanatics of film music, but for newbies calling to those ones shores lured by the sirens of Gabrielli and Junkfood. Personnel: Enrico Gabrielli - saxophone, bass clarinet, flute; Paolo Raineri - trumpet, flugelhorn, effects; Michelangelo Vanni - electric guitar, effects; Simone Calderoni - electric bass, effects; Simone Cavina - drums, effects. "C'eravamo Tanto Amati Da" features Edda Dell'Orso. Limited numbered edition of 300 on multicolored vinyl.
