Two very different albums by two almost totally different bands, is all that Procession have left us.
This band from Turin made their first album Frontiera in 1972 for the small Help label (an RCA subsidiary that also released Quella Vecchia Locanda's first album), a good album that can be easily described as an hard prog LP. With a line-up of two guitars, bass and drums, and the original high-pitched voice of singer Gianfranco Gaza, the band plays a very good hard rock with some progressive influences and acoustic passages. Not particularly original, the album has its moments and it's particularly rare.
The band reappeared in 1974 with a new line-up and a new recording deal, this time it's Fonit that releases their second album Fiaba. A mature work, much more original than their first and more in a symphonic vein with large use of sax and flute with guest appearances by drummer Francesco Froggio Francica (from Raccomandata con Ricevuta di Ritorno), Delirium's keyboard player Ettore Vigo and Circus 2000 female singer Silvana Aliotta.
Despite a good live activity Procession never gained the success they deserved and though they released two albums they disappeared without trace.
Singer Gianfranco Gaza collaborated with Arti & Mestieri in their 1975 second album Giro di valzer per domani.
Original guitarist Marcello Capra, after leaving the group and playing with Tito Schipa Jr., released some albums in 1978, 1998 and 1999, mainly solo acoustic guitar works.
Saxophonist Maurizio Gianotti later played with the jazz-rock outfit Combo Jazz.
