Conceived within the realm of funk, rock, latin, jazz and library music by maestros like Puccio Roelens, Piero Piccioni, John Barry or Syd Dale, The Smuggler Brother's first album is a work of instrumental love and sweat.
14 original tunes plus a cover of one Italy's cult composers (Alessandro Alessandroni) are featured on the first vinyl issue of this octet hailing from Palermo, Sicily.
From the rampaging runs of "Inseguimento Nella Viale Regione" to the graceful, wah-driven patterns of "An Unexpected Rendez-Vous", this record has all the flavor and smell of a carefully-cooked homemade cake.
