Aktuala - Tappeto Volante LP
Label: Bla Bla
Exclusive LP reissue of Tappeto Volante, third and final release by Aktuala, an 'open musical collective' from Milan, a fixed nucleus with many different contributes from guest musicians. As the Third Ear Band have always been inserted in the international prog panorama, the same happened with Aktuala, who were real music pioneers able to blend world, ethnic, jazz and avant-garde music.
Tappeto Volante, published in 1976 always on Bla Bla Records, was the swan song for Aktuala, an unique ensemble who often suffered a lot of criticism, often unjustified, from colleagues and critics. In a period of great social and cultural changes, Aktuala consistently continued in the making of their third album, an LP that consists of several short tracks that do not reach the cohesion of previous releases, albeit in line with what had already been proposed earlier.
