Duello Madre, from Genova, only released a jazz-oriented album with just a
single vocal track (probably the most convincing one on the LP), issued in 1973
on Produttori Associati.
In the line-up Marco Zoccheddu from Nuova Idea and Osage Tribe, Bob Callero also from Osage Tribe and drummer Dede Loprevite from Circus 2000, along with sax and flute player Pippo Trentin, and the great musicianship of the four-piece is evident throughout the album.
Aquile blu, with uncredited vocals (probably by guitarist Zoccheddu) and nice sax solos is the best track, and Momento has a nice hypnotic bass pattern, but the long instrumental tracks can be a bit monotonous at times.
After the band split the bass player Callero went to Il Volo, and drummer Loprevite played in Nova.
