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.
An italian story...

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.
