Thanks to the Centro Studi sul Jazz Arrigo Polillo ( The Siena Jazz Archive) in Italy, I was pointed to some albums made by the Italian trumpet player Mariano di Nunzio. The first one is simply titled Kurt Weill and is performed by a quintet, labelled as Il volo di Lindbergh, which means, freely translated something like Lindbergh's flight, refering to his transatlantic flight in the Spirit of St. Louis between New York and Paris May 1927. The bands contains Raffaele Brancati on reeds and flute, Mariano Di Nunzio on trumpet and flugelhorn, Sergio Corbini at the piano, Amedeo Ronga on bass and Daniele Fusi on drums. It was recorded in March 1999 on the Le Carrozze label ( CARR 10004)
Kurt Weill was a composer who lived in the first half of the XXth century. He wrote several opera's and his music is still popular. You can find his music on stage, but also played by bands like the Willem Breuker Kollektief. The first tune, Bilbao song, brings you that great Kurt Weill sound, a tune from his stage show Happy End. I was very fascinated by the tune My Ship, with a great intro by Sergio Corbini at the piano and later in duet with Marianno di Nunzio on the flugelhorn; a great ballad. This record, although dedicated to the music of Kurt Weill, has become a real jazz album with, like I said before, some great ballads. Je ne t'aime pas is another great ballad on flugelhorn and the final tune, Speak Low, a known jazz piece, which concludes this fine disc.
Mariano di Nunzio
The second album is another hidden jewel by Mariano di Nunzio and is titled Barracina.
Thanks Francesco for pointing me to these great albums. ( Siena Jazz )

Just a note to thank you for your blog. Because of your newsletter my husband found "Tivoli's Big Band Live". He had never heard of the Band, but ordered the CD and it is GREAT.
Keep Up the Good Work
