Saint Just

Saint Just

VMLP182
Release Notes
  • Limited edition clear green vinyl

Sister of well known artist Alan Sorrenti, Jenny (or Jane, as she was called in her early releases) was born in Naples from welsh mother, and formed there the acid folk trio Saint Just. With this band she released two albums before embarking in a solo career that only produced two more albums in the ‘70s. Based on the beautiful voice of Alan Sorrenti’s sister Jane, Saint Just began as a trio with mainly acoustic instruments and mixing together folk, psychedelia and classical influences. The very good results are demonstrated in their first album, released in 1973 on Harvest. The soft prog atmospheres are dreamy and enchanting, like in the opening" Quando nel mondo distrutto incominci√≤ la vita", and Alan Sorrenti also sang on a track. (source: www.italianprog.com)

Moreover, Jenny Sorrenti is still very active nowadays: she came back on stage with Saint Just and her brother Alan at the Prog Exhibition in Rome in 2011, and has just taken part in the Fabio Zuffanti/Stefano Agnini’s super-prog project called La Curva di Lesmo.

This is another classic reissue on Vinyl Magic, on coloured vinyl, of another out of print item; and once again, it’s one of the best outfits of that incredible and fertile period. Not to be missed!
