Idea 6 - MetropoliDéjà vu Recordings
Idea 6 are a sextet consisting of old timers (no disrespect intended) Gianni Basso and Dino Piana on sax and trombone respectively along with younger cats Guido Pistocchi on trumpet, Luciano Milanese on double bass, Stefano Bagnoli on drums and Andrea Pozza on piano. 'Metropoli' is a modern Italian jazz album rooted in the 50s and 60s modal and bop style and across 6 tracks they display their talents to great effect. 'Windly Coast' just edges it for me at the moment but this is excellent throughout. An album for life, not just for Christmas!
