Various - Passaporto Per L'Italia LP
A tribute to Italy. First time officially reissued, sourced from the original master tapes in a new edition, the Milan based imprint Dialogo, returns with this compilation published in Italy by RCA Victor in 1962 - a precious historical document of some important international jazz and pop artists who came to Italy and left their marks, influencing the generations of those golden years.
It contains Chet Baker with Ennio Morricone's Orchestra, with "Il Mio Domani" (My Tomorrow) and "So Che Ti Perderò" (I Know That I'll Loose You) two recordings of works composed and sung for the first time in Italian by one of the most important worldwide trumpet "Golden Trumpet" and singer "Voice Of Angel" jazz artist. Helen Merrill with "Estate" (Summer) and "Nessuno Al Mondo" (Noboby In The World), two recordings sung for the first time in Italian. She agreed to record two "light" songs because the Orchestra that performed them was conducted by Armando Trovajoli, a qualified exponent of Italian jazz and an extreme modernist. Paul Anka with Ray Ellis Orchestra, Perez Prado and His Orchestra, Neil Sedaka and Stan Applebaum Orchestra.
