MOPLEN " Mondomoplen"
( Self - released ) 2008.


Jazz/groovy/bossa nova/funk

Out of Modena, Italy comes a quartet MOPLEN. During the previous 2008 year, they have released an album "Mondomoplen" with 7 instrumental tracks in. All of them are authors works, except one entitled "Police Story", written by Jerry Goldsmith. Moplen are another band who are deeply in so call groovy movement. Musically, its sound are full of elegant keybord dominate atmosphere, locate somewhere in late 60's, and the begining of 70's period. They have offered a mixture of groovy orientired bossa nova/funk/jazz options, with many "lirical" and pretty harmonic includings, and less presents of standard improvisations. Their album is pretty listenable product, with one evident intention, to "remind" a posible listeners population on golden 60's and 70's period.
