On august 2003 Luca e Gustavo, rhythm section of a prog metal band called LITHOS, decided to create a new band, with jazz rock influences, as SOFT MACHINE or Miles Davis in early seventies, then they met young keyboards player, Daniele Manerba. Soon after some jam sessions, Gustavo said they need a guitar to increase their sound, so Luca took contact with Silver Pes, a good guitarist he joined last year in a band of a rock singer named Flai.

On august 2003 Luca e Gustavo, rhythm section of a prog metal band called LITHOS, decided to create a new band, with jazz rock influences, as SOFT MACHINE or Miles Davis in early seventies, then they met young keyboards player, Daniele Manerba. Soon after some jam sessions, Gustavo said they need a guitar to increase their sound, so Luca took contact with Silver Pes, a good guitarist he joined last year in a band of a rock singer named Flai. The quartet wrote and arranged some new songs and a cover, "Shine On You Crazy Diamond", did a lot of concerts and record the first demo cd on first days of December. This cd had good reviews on magazines as Metal Shock and Rock Hard, but the band still thought the first problem was to search a lead vocalist. After some auditions, on March 2004 the band choose Andrea Alberici, good blues vocalist, with a tipical Italian rock style.

During a concert at the fest of May the first, Luca met Rocco Vitiello, trumpet and violin player, and during a little storm, who interrupted the exhibition of his band, Luca asked Rocco if he was interested in a different kind of music (remember that Rocco played some improvising parts in a punk school band!!!!). So the band became a sextet, and did a lot of interesting gigs, and recorded the new demo cd on October 2004, out on January 2005 . In march the band was contacted by the label Mellow records, and after some discussions, they decided to remix the demo on a very professional studio, and the demo become the debut album, out in November 2005. This Italian band is a great find for the Mellow label. On their 2005 debut, NOTABENE play a 1970's style Italian symphonic prog with touches of jazz-rock.

They have an excellent singer along the lines of LOCANDA DELLE FATE's Leonardo Sasso, and the lyrics are in Italian. They add violin and trumpet for spice, and the shortest track is about 7-minutes long. Let's pray NOTABENE isn't another one-shot wonder! Read more on Last.fm.
