Franco Cerri - Chitarra '64

Beautiful work from Franco Cerri — a really unique guitar jazz session that features his talents in a host of different settings ! The players vary throughout the set — so that one number only features a duo with bass, but others feature larger lineups that include Gianni Basso on tenor, Dino Piana on trombone, Oscar Valdambrini on trumpet, Renato Sellani on piano, and Giancarlo Barigozzi on flute — all key Italian players of the 60s who really get room to sparkle on the record! Cerri's tone runs from smoothly jazzy on the group numbers to a bit more raw and personal on some of the more stripped-down ones —and titles include "Chit Car", "Blues For Jo", "Bassezza", "New Nova", "Stardust", and "Blues Dei Framasteni".

Merci de la part de ceux qui se souvient que Cerri etait obligé de gagner sa vie dans les années 70 en faisant la pub à la television italienne pour une lessive

Fantastic! Thanks so much! Really amazing blog.

Any chance you might have Basso Valdambrini Quintet from 1959 or Giorgio Azzolini's Crucial Moments?

Heres a link to some more great Italian jazz if you don't have it, Franco Tonani's Night in Fonorama: http://www.mediafire.com/?akec63e127egp8b

Thank you Melanchthon - already the second Franco Cerri album I'm able to discover through your efforts.

Maybe someone can help me with the password - I have a new pc and I've forgot to save all files from my old one - also the text-file with the password for unpacking...

onxidlib said...

Don't worry I've got the password now.

Thanks again for this post - greatly appreciated!
