Rare Italian Jazz: Nexus "Open Mouth Blues" 1983

About 25 years ago a group of young emerging italian jazz players, today all well known, formed an ensemble named NEXUS with the intent of creating a new form of creative music beyond the free.
This his their first album, that was one of the more interesting of these years and had a very good welcome not only in Italy.
Today this album is quite forgotten and deserves to be remembered.
