Home / Biography / Dedalus


The Turin-based Dedalus rank among Italy’s most enterprising jazz rock bands which despite their public profile being the best among collectors, for whom their two albums remain a ultimate goal of sorts. Properly agreed upon to the Trident label, whose very own output is a lot popular, Dedalus was produced in 1972 by Marco Di Castri (electric guitar, sax), Fiorenzo Bonansone (keyboards, cello), Furio Di Castri (bass) and Enrico Grosso (drums), launching their self-titled debut LP the next calendar year. Di Castri give up soon after the album’s discharge – opting never to replace him, Dedalus soldiered on being a trio, changing the errant bass using a heavier reliance on consumer electronics and avant-garde textures. Their second record, 1974’s Materiale per Tre Esecutori e Nastro Magnetico shows these problems with considerable achievement, but Dedalus themselves wouldn’t normally pursue the test any more. The band split up afterwards in 1974.
