Fonderia: omonimo (2002)

As the name suggests, Fonderia are basically a fusion group. But their approach is very open to influences: far away from being just a nostalgic revival of the Seventies, Fonderia's music incorporates world music, funky, hip-hop elements and brings together a very progressive formula. Their sound is clean, well-produced but deep and lively - unlike many jazz-rock groups, Fonderia can be delicate and entangling other than being fiery.
They focus a lot on atmospheres, and this album can fit as well in the background as in the foreground. "Dante, At Last" merges an English class about "La divina commedia" with a dark, psyched-out jam, creating a very evocative scenary.
