Basso Valdambrini QuintetBossa Nova ... CD
Giotto (Italy), 1962. New Copy ... $18.99 22.99
Very groovy work from this legendary Italian combo – but that's maybe no surprise, given that the album's got "bossa nova" in the title! And, as you'd expect, the group takes on the new beat that was grooving the world at the time – fresh sounds from Brazil, given a 60s Italian jazz twist – thanks to the work of trumpeter Oscar Valdambrini and tenorist Gianni Basso – who liven up the music with plenty of jazzy solos! Rhythms are nice and lean – maybe even more so than in an American session of this nature – and in addition to great trumpet and tenor, the group also features work on piano from Renato Sellani and guitar from Dino Piana – plus some guest guitar from Franci Cerri as well! The whole thing's great – as groovy as we could hope for – and the set features the original tunes "Sondra" and "Oscarnova" – plus bossa takes on "I Should Care", "My Little Suede Shoes", "Saudade Da Bahia", "Barbados", and "I'll Remember April".

Basso Valdambrini QuintetFonit H602/603 (with bonus CD) ... LP
Schema (Italy), 1970. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $32.99 34.98
Wonderful work from one of the greatest Italian jazz groups of the 60s – heard here in two of their rarest recordings! The set brings together material from two sessions that were only issued on the Fonit sound library label – but both are every bit as sharp and soulful as the best Basso-Valdambrini work for bigger labels – including their early 60s gems on RCA! And like those records, there's a wonderful sense of rhythm here – kind of the soul jazz side of Blue Note, but handled with a fresh sound that's nicely free of any copycat cliches – and which instead really has the group finding their own voice through their writing and solos. The H602 album is billed as "pop jazz" – which is more a 60s soul jazz style – and H603 is called "Californiano", with a bit of a west coast vibe, but still very much the best grooves we've come to love from the combo. The lineup on both includes tremendous trumpet from Oscar Valdabrini and tenor from Gianni Basso – with rhythms from Ettore Righello on piano, Giorgio Azzolini on bass, and Lionella Bionda on drums. Titles include "Pick Up", "Glaucus", "Gold Mine", "From Me", "Maglione", "Muy", "Plinius", and "Transistor". LP, Vinyl record album
(Includes bonus CD of the entire record too!)
