Quant Je Suis Mis Au Retour - Jazz from the Middle Age (Quant Je Suis Mis Au Retour - Jazz a középkorból)
After many successful shows following their first album (1993) they produced their second record. Even its subtitle (Jazz from the Middle Ages) suggest that the group stick to the path on which they have started in their formerly works, namely, they very successfully mix the musical sources of different ages with their own ideas, improvisations, thus they form a sound that is peculiar exclusively to them. This music is solemn and fluent, balmy and arousing at the same time.
As we can read in the appraisal of the music, it would be understandable and enjoyable only for those who are free from any kind of partiality and admissive to receive and accept any musical experience in its entirety. For those the new AT album is the Paradise of Music, where music plays with us.

Considering their musical purposes Alia Terra do under the category of those performers, who try to abolish borderlines that demarcate the traditional styles. In their music we can discover a surprising mixture of rock, jazz with the medieval European, Levant and Far Eastern musical world. Synthesiser nicely harmonises with zither or gadulka. This post-modern style esteems exclusively none of traditions, thus it creates a world what is traditionalist and revolutionary new at the same time. As the musicians say: “It is rock music of the new, post-modern, international Gothic”. Their first album was made at a jazz jamboree in august, 1993. Their special musical world with their professional performing make them the most promising formation of the Hungarian ethno-jazz.
