Bradipos IV, The – “Surf Session” – [Misty Lane Records]
Here’s a 2004 album from this superb Italian surf quartet that falls time-wise in between INSTRO MANIA! and LIVE AT KFJC RADIO. Arguably their best album, it demonstrates virtuoso playing, deep understanding of surf music fundamentals, and an Italian sound that includes but goes beyond Spaghetti Western. The last track is a heartfelt cover with saxophone of Gershwin’s “Summertime”.
