Baffo Banfi - Quella Dolce Estate Sul Pianet [1979]

A good thing this blog gets me to do is finally look up the meaning of song titles that aren't in English. I'm such a nut for getting lost in in the sounds that I often forget to investigate the meaning the music held for the artist.

Here, we have a beautifully sweeping Klaus Schulze-produced synth-stunner that translates to "That Sweet Summer on the Pianet". The pianet is a model of electric piano made in Germany, which I don't believe was actually used in the making of this track (it's not listed), and so the song is an ode to a summer spent with a specific instrument that we aren't hearing. I love that. To have such a strong feeling for an instrument that you have to express your feelings through music made on other instruments.
