Yet another 'out of time' band from the glorious golden season of Italian progressive rock, Il Baricentro - a name that does not coincidentally reveals the musicians' origins (Bari/center, Puglia) - were founded in the mid-'70s by brothers Francesco and Vanni Boccuzzi, out from the ashes of Festa Mobile.

The second and - unfortunately - last album, "Trusciánt", was published in 1978: as for the debut, we face here another instrumental jazz-rock LP dominated by keyboards and synths, with no space at all for the new musical trends of the time (punk, new wave, disco music...), but that remains firmly anchored to the sound of the early '70s; already at the time Baricentro were often compared with Weather Report and Return to Forever, but there's a strong difference in their Mediterranean flavour, the one that has made many Italian prog productions unique, "Trusciánt" included.
