RARITY # 60

FRANCO CERRI QUARTET
COLUMBIA SEMQ 153 (EP 45 rpm) – ITALY, 1960.



It’s a pleasure to relaunch the “Rarity” series of collectable 7” and 10” (45 and 33 rpm). 
It’s even a greater pleasure to restart the series with a contribution by Ernst who has been a key contributor to the Series and to the blog since the early days.










So what do we have here?  A session recorded on November 10, 1959 in Milan, Italy, by the Franco Cerri Quartet composed of .

Franco Cerri, guitar
Renato Sellani, piano
Giorgio Azzolini, bass
Gianni Cazzola, drums


Three standards and a composition by the leader.  No idea who is the Franco to whom the first track is dedicated.  I assume  /hope  it is not the Spanish dictator – he did not like jazz - nor is it Cerri,  I doubt Franco Cerri would dedicate a blues to himself. Photographer Franco  Scheichenbauer perhaps ?

TRACKS

A1. Blues For Franco (F.Cerri)                            3:13
A2. Stella By Starlight (V.Young)                         3:07
B1. Darn That Dream (Van Heusen/Delanoe)     3:05
B2. Just Friends (Klenner/Lewis)                        2:58

  2. Thanks for this. But don't you mean THREE standards and a composition by the leader? There's only 4 tracks on this EP.
