Pangea biography
Pangea was really just a name given to the solo project of Mauro Paoluzzi, a producer, composer, and multi-instrumentalist. He produced, among others, the two albums by the jazz-rock outfit Madrugada. Their bassist Billi Zanelli and keyboardist Gianfranco Pinto returned the favor here by joining this "band" called Pangea. They are joined by Paoluzzi's wife Luciana on vocals and Claudio Pascoli on saxophone. Released (or nearly so, as noted) in 1976 "Invasori" is one strange fish. The album is a sound painting, an avant-garde work covering a variety of styles. There is no other output from the group. [Jim Russell]

Pangea Rock Progressivo Italiano

Review by Iraqi Prog Rocker

4 stars Here is a lost prog gem from Italy, Home of one the most interesting and talented progrock bands in the world, one great album which became available only recently by a completely unknown band. very great music which is very Pink Floyd-oriented. the opening track is a just another Shine on you crazy diamond, the musicians while putting this album I believe they have listened and listened and again listened to Dark Side of the moon and wish you were here albums. the only draw back were the third and the fourth tracks, one flamenco music and the second one follows an African music rhythm which has disrupted the fluidity and the floydian spirit of the album. if you are interested in Rock Progressivo Italiano then go and get it

4 stars Jim (Finnforest) has pulled another obscure Italian band out of his hat (he has a big hat). This band was so obscure that even serious record collectors didn't know of them until this album was listed in one of Hans Pokora's "Record Collector Dreams" books. The reason they were so unknown was that the Phillips label dropped them along with all their prog bands in 1976. Before that happened though they had just released promo copies of this record with no cover art on it. This is the project of multi-instrumentalist Mauro Paoluzzi, a producer and session musician who is probably most known for producing the two MADRUGADA albums. In fact on their debut he wrote a couple of the tracks and played acoustic guitar on one song. Two of the guys from MADRUGADA return the favour by playing bass and keys on this one. This is a concept album and the first six tracks blend into one another. Mauro's wife sings on this one and she's very good,but we get male vocals as well.

"Invasori" has these female vocal melodies which are haunting as the atmosphere builds. A powerful sound is building before 3 1/2 minutes then it settles to end it as it blends into "Monj". A catchy beat takes over with male vocals.The vocals stop before 4 minutes as the guitar solos over top.Intricate sounds end it as it blends into "Miraggi". It builds with clapping, vocal melodies, guitar and more. Spacey sounds come in late and blend into "Coralio".This is dark and we get female vocal expressions. A beat takes over around a minute with female vocal melodies, flute, guitar and more. It turns spacey and haunting late and blends into "Naufragio". Acoustic guitar takes over as male vocals join in. This reminds me of early FLOYD. Flute only before 2 1/2 minutes to the end as it blends into "Arcipelago".The flute continues then we get piano only 1 1/2 minutes in. A beat, vocal melodies and more join in. It's fuller after 4 minutes with horns. The guitar follows then piano only ends it.

"Bazaar" has some nice crisp drumming as the sax joins in. Vocals 1 1/2 minutes in with angular guitar,bass and cymbals. Drums and sax take over again then the guitar replaces the sax 3 minutes in. Vocals are back with the angular guitar, bass and cymbals as themes are repeated. "Xanadu" opens with piano and a beat. Horns before 2 minutes as it picks up. It settles back with drums and piano around 3 minutes followed by a calm. Reserved vocals 4 1/2 minutes in but they stop around 6 minutes for a minute then they come and go. "Piccolo Re" has these sounds that pulse as the drums join in then vocals and piano. Piano, drums and bass lead after 2 minutes. Guitar after 3 1/2 minutes then the vocals return briefly. Some nice guitar before 5 minutes. It turns chaotic late. Cool sound here. "Njama" is the short closer which consists of a heavy atmosphere that hovers and echoes throughout.

It took me a while to appreciate this album but it's interesting enough and there's enough depth to it to keep me coming back for more. Love those spacey sections too.

Review by Joo Paulo

4 stars Another good album made by Italian Progressive scene. Very calm and very spacey but a litle different of classic Italian bands. They made a different vein and separate the classical music from progressive rock. It's more pure calm rock with calm guitar arrangements and calm keiboards. It's very balanced with good sound Lirics are in Italian and very balanced too. It's a good album from seventies with a band that I think made only this work. Not comercial and we can find some new contexts in every time we listen. Good adiction for those that like (i like very much) the good Italian progressive music from seventies decade and I give 4 stars

4 stars One of RPI's rarest and a real gem

This was one of those legends of Italian prog so rare that some didn't believe it really existed. Apparently after the album was cut the label changed their mind and decided to stop some of their "progressive" projects in their tracks. So the original vinyl run was limited to a few boxes of promos with plain white covers and the legend grew. Now that BTF/AMS have reissued this on CD many Italian prog fans are getting their first chance to hear this eclectic title. Pangea was really just a name given to the solo project of Mauro Paoluzzi, a producer, composer, and multi-instrumentalist. He produced, among others, the two albums by the jazz-rock outfit Madrugada. Their bassist Billi Zanelli and keyboardist Gianfranco Pinto returned the favor here by joining this "band" called Pangea. They are joined by Paoluzzi's wife Luciana on vocals and Claudio Pascoli on saxophone. Released (or nearly so, as noted) in 1976 "Invasori" is one strange fish. The album is a sound painting, an avant-garde work covering a variety of styles. It veers from just a bit of symphonic to pop to jazz-rock to ambient to space, with a curiosity and desire to try a bit of everything. It is precisely the goal of wide-open experimentation that makes "Invasori" so difficult to categorize and yet so thrilling to discover.

The music of "Invasori" is a real treat. Often it sounds like a lost Pink Floyd album with the drifting vibes of the soundtrack albums "Obscured by Clouds" or "More." But it doesn't stop there, it certainly mixes in the Italian avant-garde that brought to my mind artists like Paese dei Balocchi, Pierrot Lunaire, Saint Just, Nascita della sfera, Gruppo Alternativa, and Opus Avantra. If you like the strange stuff, you need to hear this one. "Invasori" is a concept album that moves along with the pacing and feel of a Floyd album, slow, with Mason-like drumming in some places, and full blown jazzy-rock excursions in the next. There are quiet, reflective keyboard driven sections and there are some very nicely played electric lead solos in the rocking sections. It begins with a quiet piece of synth and wordless female vocal that sounds a lot like "Shine On You Crazy Diamond." Other tracks get funky with the warm saxophone or even folk-oriented with a jugband bass guitar plucking along to canzione. "Corallo" features spacy backgrounds with raga beat behind a mix of Oldfield-like flute, acoustic guitar, and chant vocals-very soothing and dreamy. The 11-minute centerpiece "Xanadu" is a shimmering sea of repeating piano and guitar notes, gentle vocals, and faraway thoughts. These long, dreamy open spaces are shattered by the likes of "Piccolo re" with its baroque Circus-day psych hallucinations before the short closer ties up the loose ends. This is why I describe the album as a "sound painting," it evolves more like the passing thoughts of a long daydream than sounding like a typical rock album. The CD's new label describes their unearthed treasure like this: "Invasori is a beautiful and haunting progressive concept album divided in two suites in the classic italian style, with italian vocals, various moods and an overall spacey atmosphere with hints of Pink Floyd." [BTF website] It is an album that may strike you as wildly unfocused at first but with every play this music grows on me to the point where it may well become one of those unique, beyond-the-meadow treats. Like Paese dei Balocchi it is music for people who prefer the somewhat ambiguous to the obvious. Who prefer to walk than to ride. Who enjoy watching summer days slip away.

The BTF/AMS release is a gatefold mini-lp sleeve edition with a brief bio in the booklet. The sound quality is very good for 1976 (the artist was an experienced producer) and the artwork created for the release well captures the music's mystery while not falling into the schlock zone that some of today's recorded art resides in. It is bizarre imagery but retains the intimacy of truly quality album art.

Thanks to finnforest for the artist addition.
