A truly remarkable quintet, Mickey Finn, embellished by Cuong Vu's trumpet: electric sounds - echoes of Miles Davis in the Seventies and English rock, posterities from Chicago and some funk - spreading in dreamlike and restless landscapes, haunted by low-fi ghosts.
Excellent performance by Giorgio Pacorig on keyboards and Enrico Terragnoli on guitar, backed by a sulphurous Danilo Gallo on bass and by Zeno De Rossi on drums, while Cuong Vu, as usual, paints his poignant and lysergic lines.
One of the songs also features of Carla Bozulich's intense voice. The album pays tribute to Soviet aviator and cosmonaut Jurij Alekseevič Gagarin, the first man in space.
