Profile
A very important band that would have deserved much more success than they really had at the time, Jumbo were formed in Milan around singer-songwriter Alvaro Fella, previously playing as bassist with the group from Vercelli Juniors. Fella was noticed and signed by Numero Uno, with which he issued two singles in 1970 under the name Jumbo, both sharing the same B-side ("Due righe da te") and containing two cover versions, "Montego Bay" and "In estate," an Italian version of "In the Summertime."
