Il Bestiario

Re-press now in stock. Mind-blowing revive from Holidays... minimalist jazz-folk/art-song from 1974, featuring Alvin Curran and Steve Lacy. Recommended for fans of Norma Winstone / Azimuth, Brannten Schnure, Emmanuelle Parenin and the like. 

"Deluxe vinyl reissue of Maria Monti's legendary Il Bestiario, a prime example of the avant-garde art-song of the 1970s. Knew for her renderings of Italian popular songs, Maria Monti is an Italian singer and actress with a noteworthy career: cabaret singer in the '60s, ambitious avant-garde folk artist in the '70s, and starring in films by directors as such as Sergio Leone (Fistful of Dynamite) and Bernardo Bertolucci (1900).

"Il Bestiario is a near perfect emblem of the fascinating territory gained through collaboration. It enlisted the radical poet Aldo Braibanti as its lyricist, features arrangements and synthesizer from Alvin Curran (Musica Elettronica Viva), the baritone saxophone of Roberto Laneri (Prima Materia), as well as the soprano saxophone of jazz legend Steve Lacy. The result is absolutely stunning, musically unique within the respective outputs of its participants' long and noted careers. One of the most beautiful and neglected albums of its decade." - Holidays Records

Edition of 500, includes 16 page booklet with lyrics and translations.
