“V – COMPENDIUM OF A LIFETIME”

The fifth chapter of  Vincenzo Ricca’s The Rome Pro(G)ject saga draws inspiration from the military discipline of ancient Rome on one hand, and the dramatic events of the eruption of Vesuvius on the other.

It develops in three long compositions – whose elements have a life of their own – in which reminiscences and quotes of Prog Rock genre emerge here and there, with no lack of suggestive novelties in terms of sound scapes.

Alongside Vincenzo Ricca, once again Steve Hackett and David Jackson – the only collaborators present on all five works – with John Hackett, Bernardo Lanzetti and Nick Magnus who have already collaborated on the Pro(G)ject. The great and pleasant surprise is the participation of Tony Levin who characterizes four out of the seven tracks. And then some “delicious talents”: among the new entries, the voice of Tony Patterson and the drums of Simone Ritacca, who flank long-time collaborators such as Franck Carducci (bass and guitar 12), Paolo Ricca (electric guitar) and Roberto Vitelli (bass ).

The lenght of the album is around 40 minutes (which suggests a quality vinyl version…maybe someday) plus, a revised version of “Exegi Monvmentvm”, from the third album, as an extra track.

Track list:

“COMPENDIUM OF A LIFETIME” (13’:44”)

“VESUVIUS” / “THE LAST NIGHT IN THE WORLD” (7’:53”)

“HAVE CAESAR!” / “MORITURI TE SALUTANT” / “GLADIATORES” / “HAVE CAESAR! REPRISE” (17’:30”)
