Very nice album

Yowzer

In this context, nice and tasteful are not meant to be slams. This is a polite reworking of Eno material, not essential listening but not bad at all. Personally, I have been playing the reworking of An Ascent all summer and am very impressed with what they were able to tease out of that song. Very well-recorded and played.

Gorgeous Instrumentalism

Beautiful instrumental album perfect for rainy, introspective days.

They Say All Music Guide

Italian pianist Arturo Stàlteri’s Cool August Moon is an album based on Brian Eno’s music. Stàlteri (helped by Arlo Bigazzi on some tracks) rearranged Eno’s compositions to make a work of his own. The Italian musician imposed his conception of the music over Eno’s original pieces. For this project, he played accompanied by a chamber orchestra, putting aside most electric instruments appearing on Eno’s pieces. And, although the tunes he covers are from different albums, Cool August Moon has a real coherence, with piano as the lead instrument and sensibility all on edges. Inside the booklet is an interesting text entitled Cool Diary Moon, where Stàlteri tells the story of the album: the first encounter between he and Eno in June 1990, the starting point of the project in 1995, and its realization in 2000. We learn all about the difficult genesis of the album. – Romain Guillou
