Almost three years after their excellent album Lavoro D'Amore (2015) Roz Vitalis are back with The Hidden Man Of The Heart, a very worthy successor indeed.
Again Roz Vitalis gives us vintage instrumental progressive rock, very much in tune with the early seventies. A good part of the songs being melodic a band like Camel does come to mind in these instances, but this is not the only facet of the band's music, because some pretty adventurous stuff can also be heard, bringing flavours of free jazz and experimental music. All this is linked by a few short classical inspired pieces that jell together the whole oeuvre.
In my opinion the band has evolved in the last three years and has produced a very accomplished and exciting musical artwork.
Those into instrumental music touching on many genres (and being clearly progressive) should really check out The Hidden Man Of The Heart by Roz Vitalis.
Good stuff indeed!
