Enrico Pieranunzi - In That Dawn Of Music - Rare and Unpublished tracks

What else to add on Enrico Pieranunzi that you don't already know, or that the website of the artist can not explain?

What I'd like to tell you, however, is that once the magazine Musica Jazz, the first and the most specific Italian publication dedicated to this music, attached in homage to his readers precious LP or CD like this, where they were published unreleased recordings taken from rare live concerts. Then, for reasons of publishing rights or because it's more convenient to choose the easy way out, this is no longer happened.

This does not detract from the prestige and professionalism of this publication.
I think especially in the historical memory that this magazine, operating since 1945, the year of Italy's liberation from fascism, built with passion, and is now available online, thanks to the National Center for Jazz Studies Arrigo Polillo, on the initiative and editorial care by Francesco Martinelli.

For me, however, the decision to make available these unpublished recordings, which were likely to forget, is the closest thing to the spirit of preservation and sharing of jazz that inspires my blog. Now you can listen Enrico Pieranunzi, but there are also unpublished records of Gianluigi Trovesi, Guido Manusardi, Giorgio Gaslini, Giancarlo Schiaffini, Gianni Basso, Massimo Urbani, Chet Baker in Italy, and others that now I don't remember.

This is because, besides the pleasure of hearing a good record, those unreleased recordings, contributed, in an excellent manner, to write the history of music that is based essentially on his performances, rather than on the written page.

I hope that now, with the new editor and with the interesting and transverse direction of Filippo Bianchi, the desire to document the sound of this music, returns one of the priorities of this magazine.
