Second chapter for italo-spanish two piece Radament, that is, percussionist Giorgio Fausto Menossi and pianist Juanjo FernŠndez, meticulously blending the perfect chemistry of jazz romance, tinted with more contemporary electronics. Based in Barcelona, Spain, still on tones of grey on their cover art, piano and drums dynamically twirl in front of themselves like two perfect parallels in a vortex of enthralling melodic solutions: that's Beatus Ille, a piece which continually grow and grow with intelligent pauses and dramatic dilatations. Later, Danza Involuntaria - introduced and closed by a buzz abrupt, - soon begins to run along a spiral staircase of tormented elegance, languid and restless at the same time. Ensimismado bends somehow to Bill Evans' soliloquy, this, just to denote how FernŠndez can richly speak to the listener's heart both eloquently and minimal through his piano. Like as well for Claroscuro: it makes you want to float and fall through this hypnotic as fascinating spiral. Vivacious and bittersweet with Dithiramba, Otro DŪa, Menossi wisely weaves and nitches his drumming to the piano, never being forceful the vehemence of this brilliant togetherness. A firm rhythmic support indeed. An absorbing set of nine tracks for those in search of seductive and splendid instrumental Music. Enjoy.

Pure elegance. Melancholy. Bleakness for Bitterness. Lonesomes' midnight romance. Minimalist percussions, bare bass lines, winds, spare guitars, male lead vocals, female backing vocals. A balance of Beauty and Painful memories turned into Beauty. If possible. A new redifintion of sadness. Joy through sadness that lasts for a much longer period of time than normal. You want to slowly dance with this, into this. Now press play, and cover Alexi and his Saxophones with gold. I would do, if only I have some. - Don't miss If You're On Water, Singing Desperately, Aloha.
Drummer for Robert Smith's The Cure ( Japanese Whispers, The Top, and Concert in addition to the singles Love Cats and The Caterpillar.) and The Glove, - just to cite a few: truly an inspiration for his metronomic drum style. He died from terminal cancer. He was 68. So long, and thanks for all the fish, mr Andy.
Anderson was kicked off the band after he flipped out in Japan attacking other members of the tour party in 1984. Alcoholism. Yeah, the uploader of the below live vid was none other than Andy Anderson himself.
