An italian story

Today I received this e-mail from Ms. Adriana Branchini, head of the Contracts & Royalties of CAROSELLO label:

The records belong to the Jazz from Italy series, and reproduced on your websites, are owned by CAROSELLO, and they are for the duration of copyright protection, now stands at 50 years from the date of registration. These recordings, remastered, are now available, for a fee, through iTunes, and some are re-proposed on vinyl, as you noted;
the titles available in vinyl
(only two LP's have been reissued to date, obviously not published in this blog NdA), however, are destined to increase (when? N.d.A.), and we plan to reprint in CD, probably ( probably ? N.d.A.), the complete series.

I note also that the marks JAZZ FROM ITALY and CAROSELLO are trademarks owned, and you don't have right to use them in the sites or in e-mail addresses (Jazz from Italy means Jazz dall'Italia in English, is not a brand... N.d.A.) I would therefore inhibit immediate download from this site of our records, and also to break off the use of our trademarks, specifying that you do not act in the name of these brands, but independently.

Is obvious that I remove the share from the blog, this the law says - or almost - , and I can't do anything else (although I'm not sure that we can listen to these recordings in a short time), but it's curious to note how the owners of "so called" rights, leave the tapes of these recordings locked, for nearly three decades, in a dark drawer, and then, one day, they realize that someone uses them for cultural purposes and not for commercial use, causing also a considerable interest and, surprise, here is awakening in them the spirit of the defenders of art and artists.

Teddy Wilson Trio - Live at Santa Tecla - CLE 21032

Perhaps, I should remind you how he started with Benny Carter, then with Louis Armstrong, Mezz Mezzrow, Benny Goodman and Red Norvo, to talk about Teddy Wilson, or enough to tell of his famous collaboration with Lady Day?
Needless to mention his nearly two hundred recordings made before the 1945, including those for the Brunswick, to put him, at full merit, among the masters of swing?

I think just listening to this LP.

Mario Rusca Quartet - Suspension - CLE 21024 and three more...

In this post I published four volumes of CAROSELLO label, although for only one I can let you listen to music.

Let me explain:
the record of Mario Rusca, which gives the title to this post, and the next volume, the CLE 21025, Latineuro, release at name of Angel Pocho Gatti, are not in my collection, but at least they are in my wishlist.
The two subsequent volumes, the CLE 21026 and 21027, however, are a "mystery".
Also among the most "aggressive" Italian collectors, such as Lorenzo of Amarcord Records, these two chapters are missing, two pages torn out of the discography, two blacks holes of this Italian label.

I, among my various contacts, I've become aware of a single title of this, thanks to Felix, a Brazilian collector, who also sent me the cover.
According to Felix, in fact, the CLE 21027 is Zimbo, by ZIMBO TRIO, an album of latin jazz from Brasil, licensed by RGE/FERMATA and printed in Italy, on 1976, by CAROSELLO.
The CLE 21026 is, as yet, an unknown record, at least for me.

If any of you could confirm these data, or had some other news, he must know that would help a poor addicted collector of jazz.

However, you are quiet, that even if I don't have any of the four LPs, the Web is still a fat cow, for those who can cook, and I'll not leave you too long without good stuff ...

so thanks to ish, which gives us the delicious music of Mario Rusca directly from is amazing blog Ile Oxumaré

at the next...

Gigi Cichellero Big Band - Lonely Street - CLE 21023

The name of Gigi Cichellero, is probably not well known to lovers of Jazz, because he is better known as a RAI Orchestra conductor, author of music for "light" singers, as Johnny Dorelli or Tony Dallara, and director of television programs like "Canzonissima" or "Tempo di Musica", but his natural sense of swing is undeniable.

Many of the participants in this recording, however, do not need any introduction, and I'm referring to names like Dusko Goykovich, Sergio Fanni, Attilio Donadio, Ettore Righello, Pasquale Liguori and more.

Once curiosity, and concerns Gianluigi Trovesi, another participant in this session: this is the first album that he recorded.

Last but not least, a disc of jazz for big band, in Italy, is still a rarity.
