Stop Bajon (Primavera)

Happy Thanksgiving holiday is here and what a lovely time it has been spending time with my beloved extended family of friends.  Due to the social demands of the season around this time of year,  it is expected not to have any time to post here.  Now I'm happy to feature a great song from Tullio De Piscopo called "Stop Bajon (Primavera)".  According to dear friend wikipedia, De Piscopo was born in Naples, the son of a drummer in an orchestra.  In 1969 he moved to Turin, where he began a successful career as drummer for several popular artists including Gerry Mulligan, Astor Piazzolla, Gato Barbieri, Lucio Dalla, Pino Daniele, Manu Chau and others.  In 1974-1975 he was a member of New Trolls Atomic System.  He also wrote scores for several movies.  His most successful song is "Andamento lento", which won Festivalbar in 1988.  Outside Italy he became famous with this song which was released in 1983 and spearheaded the early Italo House/Disco movement.  It was a also favorite during the early days of house music in Chicago and it was on heavy rotation at the clubs there around that time.  It is a fairly new discovery to my ears and  loving it!  The hooks are amazing and the breaks are sweet. Enjoy!
