a bit of nice italian jazz, shared by the prolific dimer ‘survivor69’ who called it “sixties soul-jazz” with a bit of swing.  however you describe it, this is very listenable music, and adds a lift to whatever you’re doing while it’s on.

all tracks are by the saxophonist (an orchestral sideman), but the leader is the drummer, with a long career in italian music. music proposed here is allegedly “sixties soul-jazz” with a bit of swing, check samples for an idea of what this could mean… also included in the folder, marked as track 00, a brief radio introduction in italian with bio notes and commentaries – this intro runs for 1’45”, you can skip downloading it if you don’t understand italian.
