Product Details
From digging in dusty vinyl crates for obscure samples to the airwaves of Italy's most important music radio station, Italian indie funk combo CALIBRO 35 have taken quite a sonic journey. The discovery of Italian '60s and '70s soundtracks in 2007 was the inspirational springboard for the formation of this five-piece helmed by Tomasso Colliva (Musde, Franze Ferdinand, Arto Lindsay) and his musical cast of characters:Massimo Martellotta (Stewart Copeland) on guitars and steel guitars, Enrico Gabrielli on keyboards, brass and flute, Fabio Rondanini on drums and Luca Nano Cavina on Bass. On July 13, American music fans will have a chance to sample their brilliant recreations of Italian soundtracks and originals works on their U.S. debut album "Ritornano Quelli Di... Calibro 35" or "The Return of... Calibro 35" (Nublu Records).

In 2008, Colliva invited his music pals to record what would become their self-titled debut album at OmniaB studios in Milan and within the first two days together, Calibro 35 Blossomed into an outstanding combo performing classic and obscure themes, trying to bring something contemporary to the compositions but still remaining very respectful to the originals. Original tunes appeared soon with the same aim, recreating the attitude, the sound and that strange mixture between jazz, funk, rock, classical, and imporovisation that made Italian soundtracks known worldwide. The album received enthusiastic reviews in Italian and international press and airplay on many leading radio stations including the BBC.

Calibro 35 did extensive touring throughout 2008 in Italy and Europe, and in 2009 they made it to the U.S. performing select shows including Nublu in New York City and the Henry Fonda Theater in the West Coast. They were also invited to perform live at KCRW's "Morning Becomes Eclectic." Their U.S. debut album "Ritornano Quelli Di..." features eight original compositions as well as recreations of well known works of Italian film composers Ennio Morricone, Gianni Ferrio, Ritz Ortonali and Piero Umiliani.
