‘survivor69’ who uploaded this on dime in late 2010 called this ‘this is “average” jazz (and i nowhere mean it badly) like you heard it hundreds of time‘.  maybe…  i was listening to it earlier today, while listening to it while working away like mad, and it was just right for the moment.  maybe ‘straight jazz, no pretensions’?  be that as it may, i listened to another rosario giuliana show, from 2001, which was also good, but not quite such a fit for my mood.  so you get this one.

introducing his latest album “lennies pennies” (dreyfus jazz, 2010), strangely without his usual cohort pieranunzi, this is “average” jazz (and i nowhere mean it badly) like you heard it hundreds of time. but it kinda rocks, i would say… also included in the folder, marked as track 00, an introduction and telephone interview in italian with giuliani – this interview runs for 12’55”

no covers.  again.

sticking with that “graz” theme, here’s another that i downloaded at around the same time (mid 2011), also from a performance in graz.  but the similarities end there a bit… 11 trombonists vs 2 pianists?  hmmm.  both good, a bit different though.

the announcer does chat a bit between tracks, though, but not too much (unlike, say, most french announcers).
