The New Trolls are one of the oldest and most respected of Italian prog bands. Starting their career in 1968 they progressed through their psychedelic roots quickly to make the masterpiece "Concerto Grosso I" in 1971. Combining rock band instrumentation with classical instruments it is the first marriage of classical music & rock in Italy. Making several more fine albums they split into two groups at the height of their popularity. The hard rock band IBIS and the adventurous group New Trolls Atomic System. It is the latter group who made this incredible all-instrumental album. Just two long tracks - one in 7/4 time and the other in 13/8 !! The music combined a Gentle Giant-like complexity with the symphonic jazz-fusion sounds of some of the other Italian bands of the day such as Arti e Mestieri or Il Volo! "Tempi Dispari" is a much overlooked classic of the Italian scene!
