Cannot help saying what was happening upon NEW TROLLS (A. T.) after finishing this album, as well. Their beautiful symphonic touches (a refrain of Concerto Grosso, as you know) can be heard only in the beginning of the second track "Trediciottavi" but basically this live album consists of complete jazz rock, not symphonic like the previous eponymous work. Amazingly, not only bewildering but also complete stuffs, we can feel obviously. Aggressive horn sounds and steady synthesizer turfs with spacey noises should make us (and the audience upon the gig / recording) cheer up. In the whole track "Settequarti" we cannot breathe at all but only get absorbed in such a massive attack based upon loud, roughly powerful playing. Superb endings on both tracks / sides let us put too much feeling into them. Regardless of their premier history, we can never ignore this terrific jazz rock album. Let me say it's not too much to think they could get to be a splendid jazz rock-based live combo hooray.

It's about time New Trolls Atomic System is included in here, mainly for Tempi Dispari. NT Atomic System's name came out of a legal dispute between Vittorio De Scalzi and Nico Di Palo following the breakup of the old band after the release of UT at the end of 1972. So while legal matters were going on, Vittorio De Scalzi assembled a new band but had to be called NT Atomic System. In 1973 they released their first album on the Magma label (which was ran by De Scalzi himself) which is much more in prog rock territory, but there are some jazzy passages. For me, the real reason they're included in here is this second album Tempi Dispari. I guess the legal wrangling was over, because this album clearly bears the New Trolls name and not NT Atomic System, although it's still the Atomic System band (the actual New Trolls did reunite around 1975 after De Scalzi and Di Palo made up). As mentioned the 1973 album was a prog rock album, but Tempi Dispari is full on jazz rock/fusion, and it's nothing short of amazing, even though it was recorded live. For all who love this kind of music, this is an essential purchase, although it would be a big jolt for the progheads used to their more prog-oriented material. Lots of electric piano, sax, some spacy synths creeping in from time to time, some Hammond organ. Somewhere the band plays a theme from Concerto Grosso Per 1 and the audience gets all excited, to prove that this new New Trolls hadn't forgotten about the old New Trolls. The album was a commercial failure in Italy, and many have called it a disappointment, but I can't see why. Many people probably didn't like the idea of a prog rock band playing fusion. But it's nice to see these guys pull it off and pull it off very well, and so if you're looking for fusion outside the Mahavishnu Orchestra/Weather Report/Return to Forever comfort zone, this is a great album to have!
