The title "Nuove Musiche" is Italian for "new music". Taken from Giulio Caccini's collection of songs from the early 17th century, the melodies and texts have been returned to the 21st by the forerunners of progressive rock and jazz.
"Not for the narrow-minded" "... Many talents to accompany that superb voice. "Amarilli Mia Bella" (Amarillis, My Beauty), where a picking guitar, filled with effects kind of reminds you of a heavy metal song.

Extremely innovative." - guitarnoise.com
