Patrizia Scascitelli 4tet - LIVE at the "Statale" University of Milan - 1975

Born in Rome (1949, October 15), Patrizia Scascitelli began playing music at eight years old.

Her beginning collaborations were with well-known musicians in Rome such as Massimo Urbani and Bruno Tommaso. Her first jazz recording, "Ballata" (VISTA TPL1 1113 - RCA - 1974) inspired by Italian folk music, was one of the recordings most representative of Italian musical expression of that time.

During a brief stay in Milan, Patrizia worked with musicians active on the scene such as saxophonist Daniele Cavallanti. Upon returning to Rome, she formed the quartet, Life Force, with drummer Marvin "Boogaloo" Smith, Karl Potter on percussion and Larry Dinwiddie, saxophone. From this group came the still sought-after live recording from Statale di Milano (Vedette 1975).

In 1981, she moved to New York, where she currently resides.

  1. A very distinctive piano style. Not sure what to make of it. The Don Pullen- style runs work very well. As a band, though, they play thoroughly enjoyable music. Thank you for continuing to expose me to new and interesting music.

  2. Thanks a lot for the dedication! I'm glad you're back helping us to complete the RR-discog. I'm completely unfamiliar with this lady, looking forward to hear her album. Cheers!

  3. hi, i'm Max, nice music, thanks, i never heard her, a little too "easy" sometime but often beautiful.

    do you have the rare "Ballata" also? It's not reprinted and very hard to find...

  4. Questo è un disco tanto interessante quanto raro.
    Grazie per averlo condiviso, anche se io non l'ho notato subito e oramai il link non funziona più.

    Non potresti ricaricarlo da qualche altra parte?

    Ti ringrazio comunque ed in ogni caso.
    Ciao, Rabbie
