About this album

‘CALIPH’, THE 3RD VERBRILLI SOUND ALBUM, finally arrives. Don Verbrilli picks up where he left off on ‘Leisure War’ and then continues to push the sound of his trademark beats and fluid, psychedelic tinged melodies into new territories. This includes the addition of strong funk and soul elements and a wide variety of live instrumentation: guitars, sax, bass, trumpet, trombone, etc. All these instruments are played by Verbrilli himself and, together with further vocal explorations, all tracked in his own evergrowing studio. The album title ‘Caliph’ associates Verbrilli’s interest in middle eastern culture and sounds and these elements are subtly evident throughout the recording.

    Great album. Can't believe I didn't like it on my first listen through, but what can you expect when following the arete of Leisure War?
