"Beautifully recorded, this album belongs in the collection of all serious jazz and Allman Brothers fans" - Tom Clarke

"A double disk as in the old days, but out of any time: much less predictable than I told it, much more beautiful than I could say"
Stefano I. Bianchi - Blow Up Magazine

"The J. & F. Band features a myriad of seasoned musicians who use new record From The Roots To The Sky to show off ideas, showdown with each other, and jam to their heart’s content. From The Roots To The Sky is a record of free flowing ideas from skilled musicians at the top of their game". 4/5!
Jamie Parmenter -

"...un intreccio strumentale che fluttua dal jazz all'astrattismo free, dal blues al rock, da New Orleans all'improvvisazione. Un disco non facile ma curioso, libero da condizionamenti, complesso ma anche estatico, oltre che aperto alle jam.." Mauro Zambellini - Zambo's Place Blog

A fantastic double CD featuring legendary Allman Brothers Band drummer and Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame member JAIMOE and his long time pal, bass giant JOE FONDA, plus a selection of Italian jazz aces (Tiziano Tononi, Alberto Mandarini, Gianluigi Paganelli, Beppe Caruso) and Finnish/American guitar master Raoul Björkenheim, and some other guests.
A massive effort that covers a fantastic spectrum of creative music: soulful jazzy ballads and instrumentals, a southern funk rock cover, complex avant jazz rock pieces, extended improvised jams mixing Bitches Brew style textures, blues and free jazz, and more.
