l Sogno del Marinaio—Italian for “the sailor’s dream”—is the music project comprising bass-wielding legend Mike Watt, guitarist Stefano Pilia, and drummer Andrea Belfi. The trio came together on a whim in 2009 when Pilia and Belfi recruited Watt to join them for impromptu festival set in Cesena, Italy. The mini-tour that followed led to the quick recording of the band’s debut, La Busta Gialla, an album that didn’t see release until last year due to busy schedules. For the band’s follow-up album, Canto Secondo, the trio has found time to make their debut here in the States by jamming econo in typical Watt fashion. With 51 shows in as many days, the tour has potential to shape the still-young band. Given the improvisational nature of the music and the talent at hand, it should prove to be a voyage well worth checking out. CHIPP TERWILLIGER
