**45th Anniversary Edition, red vinyl, 500 copies numbered** During the 1970s, Italy was one of the most exciting and fascinating musical contexts in Europe, birthing seminal projects and artists like Franco Battiato, Aktuala, Lino 'Capra ' Vaccina, Giusto Pio, Roberto Cacciapaglia, Futuro Antico, and so many more. Defining the scene was an ethos that rigorously pursued creative freedom and experimentation, with its artists fluidly moving between popular music - rock, prog, jazz, etc. - and more explicitly avant-garde approaches and forms. At the centre of this movement was the percussionist, Toni Esposito, whose stunning third solo LP, Gente Distratta  - originally issued by Numero Uno in 1977 - has finally received a beautiful vinyl reissue via Sony. Rippling with mind-blowing polyrhythms and genre-defiant tonal interventions, it’s an absolute masterpiece that’s likely to blow the mind of any fan of Italian minimalism and prog.
