Maxophone are an Italian progressive rock band formed in Milan in 1973. After one year rehearsal work, they released one self-titled album in 1975, which aged pretty well, sounding fresh today as 30 year ago. That well coordinated six piece ensemble had a twin-fold soul: half of the members had classic music background while the other half had a solid rock background. Maxophone is today widely regarded as one of the top italian prog rock groups and as a band of great talents and musicianship. Their most renown feature is to change the music mood from pastoral to rock to classical within the same song without losing listening momentum. Read more here.
