Artist Biography by

Natives of Bari, Italy, the brothers Giovanni and Francesco Boccuzzi, and bassist Tonio Napoletano first came to note as members of Festa Mobile, a jazz rock quintet whose one and only album, the ambitious concept Dario Di Vaggio Della Festa Mobile was issued by RCA in 1973. Following that group's collapse later that same year, the trio recruited drummer Piero Mangini and launched Il Baricentro, a similarly jazz-inclined outfit who cut two albums for EMI. 1976's Sconcerto and 1978's Trusciuant are both recommended to fans of Weather Report and Chic Corea.
