Henghel Gualdi - NOW - CLE 21022

Henghel Gualdi was born in S Martino in Rio (Reggio Emilia) in July 1924.
Musically active since 1948, he was one of the few clarinetists of Italian jazz, with Glauco Masetti and Aurelio Ciarallo, the only two that can be remembered more than him, at least until the Seventies, when it appears Gianluigi Trovesi and, subsequently, Eugenio Colombo.

For many fans, Gualdi is "only" a light musician, nevertheless his historic meeting with jazz musicians such as William Righi, Roberto Nicolosi, Giampiero Boneschi, Romano Mussolini and Gil Cuppini, just to name a few.
Also, I would remember that he has given memorable concerts with iternational stras as Sidney Bechet, Bill Coleman, Albert Nicholas, Jean-Luc Ponty, Stephane Grappelli, Teddy Wilson, Lionel Hampton and Louis Armstrong.

If this were not enough, then you must listen to this record, to understand who is really Henghel Gualdi, who was born in the USA would be appointed "King of Swing" while, he was born in Italy, unfortunately, was almost forgotten ...
