Actis Band Discography of CDs


Son Para el Che Son Para el Che CD (1999)
CD $30.89 Buy It  Details
Actis Band CD discography Wild man Italian saxophonist Carlos Actis Dato is known for his comic antics with the Italian Instabile Orchestra and as leader of his own groups. This recording features him in an unusual setting -- two saxophones, electric guitar, bass and drums -- and Dato takes full advantage, with his best set to date. Combining avant garde jazz solos with Eastern European melodies and an upbeat funky rock beat, the group maneuvers through an eclectic collection of originals, tearing the hide of the ball and covering wide ground. The rhythm section of guitarist Antonio Fontana, bassist Federico Marchesano and drummer Dario Bruna lays down a solid danceable beat, and the saxophones take full advantage. Dato is heard on bass clarinet and tenor and baritone saxes, joined by Massimo Rossi on soprano and alto saxophones. The results thoroughly invigorate, and if excesses occasionally emerge, they do not seem out of place. ~ Steve Loewy Translator: Pete Kercher. Personnel: Carlo Actis Dato (clarinet, tenor saxophone, bass saxophone); Antonio Fontana (guitar); Massimo Rossi (soprano saxophone, alto saxophone); Federico Marchesano (acoustic bass, electric bass); Dario Bruna (drums). Recording information: Colori Studio, Lessolo ...

Allende Allende CD (2006)
CD $22.19 Buy It  Details
Actis Band CD discography Of all of Carlo Actis Dato's hyperactive projects, Actis Band are probably the most high-energy, fast-paced, and hard-hitting. Allende is the follow-up to 2003's Garibaldi. The lineup remains pretty much the same, except for guitarist Karsten Lipp sitting in the chair previously occupied by Antonio Fontana. Can you play jazz and rock at the same time without playing jazz-rock? Sure. Satoko Fujii does so every time she takes her Quartet (with Ruins drummer Tatsuya Yoshida) to the studio or the stage. The same applies to Actis Band. It remains pure Dato: the unmistakable Italian avant-garde jazz feel, the fat baritone sax riffs, the circus/fanfare vibe, the agility and danceability of the music. But it all rocks harder, ...
