” Mirageman : Thrilling “

Picture 11

If your looking for some more groove morale in your life, you just found it!!

Pianist and composer Giovanni Fenati (from Romagna) had an intense recording career since the late 50’s. Starting with an orchestral repertoire, his style started to include contemporary elements aroud the end of the 60’s, and he released some albums under the nickname Mirageman for the Ariston label. Under this name three albums came out, issued between 1970 and 1972, but his previous two works, Music cocktail from 1969 and Per voi giovani from 1970 credited to Fenati, are in the same style.

Most of this keyboard-led instrumental production has little connection with progressive music, as demonstrated by the album titles, Per voi giovani and Alto gradimento were popular radio programs, and the albums were more in the easy listening/lounge music style.

Only the last one, Thunder and lightning, is definitely in a more progressive vein, with prominent electric guitar and flute over an orchestral background. Described as “Deep Purple jamming on some Henry Mancini-style instrumentals” on an Internet site, the ten track album is not far from the style of The Underground Set or Planetarium albums, and was released on the Ariston Gnomo progressive label.

Giovanni Fenati died in 1981 in a car accident.
