Greetings my fellow Mooniversians.

Here's that special show I promised the past two weeks.

I am honored to bring you the Italian entry in the early Jazz/Rock or Fusion bands of the 1970's. Likened to Return to Forever and Weather Report, this group brought a nice fresh sound to the genre with their Italian flavored musicianship.

My playlist will include the Aural Moon Premier of their very 1st album Azimut from 1972.

I hope you will join me on Monday afternoon. See you on the Corner.
