  • d.f.a.: work in progress live
        (2001, cd, usa, moonjune records)
As the MoonJune Records label recently offered this album as a free download (to celebrate its 15th anniversary), I'm happy to give this excellent album another listen.

Here's the info from the MoonJune Records website :

This live album documents D.F.A.'s stellar performance at NEARfest 2000. It most certainly marked the beginning of a new, exciting phase in the band's career, and was their first major exposure outside the confines of their native Europe. (D.F.A. is from Italy, a country with a rich progressive music history.)

It was early afternoon on June 17th, 2000, when D.F.A. took the stage for their first-ever live performance in the USA. Many among the large audience of progressive music enthusiasts at NEARfest were obviously unfamiliar with the Italian band and their music, but as the show progressed it became evident that history was in the making. Each successive song was greeted with a bigger roar of applause, and D.F.A. were becoming instant stars on the international progressive music scene. It was a spellbinding performance at a breakthrough event in the history of the group.

Recorded with crystal clarity, this is an exceptional recording of a very special live performance. Full of excitement, surprises and superb playing, Work In Progress Live is one album that's not to be missed by any fan of progressive music.

Here's a track from one of their later albums :
