Gillespie Dizzy Attack & Stuff Smith - Gillespie-Smith
Compared to the formal rigour demanded by Benny Golson, Dizzy seems to take himself less seriously and have more fun. Far from routines, this is a sunny collaboration with Smith full of tones and colours; Rio Pakistan and Purple Sounds, written by the trumpeter, justify the whole record on their own, an ideal mix of vintage pop and exotic that Gillespie himself introduced after the war.

Smith & Joe Stuff Venuti Tribute
The members of the famous Chicago Stompers, Mauro L. Porro and Martino Pellegrini, form a duet known for a series of projects to restore the sounds of 20s and 50s Jazz. Porro, a multi-instrumentalist, is one of the most brilliant talents of traditional European Jazz and works as a soloist, band leader and arranger (he collaborates, for example, with the orchestra of Vince Giordano).
A talented violinist, Pellegrini has performed many times with famous jazz musicians (from Lino Patruno to Stochelo Rosenberg) and popular musicians (Enrico Ruggeri). His heart beats for the music of Joe Venuti and Stuff Smith, two great violinists of the swing era to whom the project proposed by the duet in Ascona is dedicated, flanked by Yuri Biscaro on guitar or alternatively Marco Rottoli on bass.
