Nino Rota is one of my favourite composers. I have many albums of his music, played by various groups and musicians. This album is my favourite, at least for the time being.
Accordion is probably the best instrument to play Rota's music, and no one can match Richard Galliano on this instrument. He chose fantastic jazz musicians to play Rota with him (John Surman on sop. sax., Dave Douglas on trumpet, Boris Kozlov on double bass and Clarence Penn on drums). Their stimulating interpratation is faithful to the spirit of Rota yet very personal.
I love it.

Of Nino Rota's 145 film scores, the handful that he wrote for Federico Fellini -- and, inevitably, the famous themes from Coppola's THE GODFATHER -- are what Galliano and company explore on this recording, and why not? It's the circus music of LA STRADA, vulgar, sweetly comic, and emotionally wrenching, that this quintet explores at greatest length, its themes threading through the album like a leitmotif of melancholy gaiety.

"Music should not be intellectual, but intelligent," a student of Rota's recalled. The jazz quintet that Galliano assembled for this project handles everything the scores can throw at them, from AMARCORD's foxtrots to the sardonic bossa nova of JULIET OF THE SPIRITS, to LA DOLCE VITA's medley of ritual percussion music, cool jazz, and samba.

I VITELLONI's mini-medley starts with a haunting waltz for accordion and soprano sax, leading to a jaunty, swinging theme for walking bass, muted trumpet, and sax. Galliano dusts off his trombone for an unaccompanied rendition of the GODFATHER waltz, and arranges that film's famous love theme (a recycled, slowed-down revision of a march that Rota had written years earlier, for a comedy) as a duet for accordion and bass.

If Americans were capable of taking the accordion seriously, Galliano's music wouldn't be such a hard sell in this country. The magnificent music making on this disc just might change a few minds.

Well-known extracts from popular film scores by Italian composer Nino Rota (1911-1979) played by a stellar jazz quintet featuring Richard Galliano (accordion, trombone in track 1), John Surman (soprano saxophone and alto clarinet), Dave Douglas (trumpet), Boris Kozlov (double bass), Clarence Penn (drums). The music has a joyful simplicity, it is instantly accessible while retaining its essential nobility (words borrowed from the liner notes), improvisation is very limited (all tracks quite short) while attention is entirely focused on lyricism and melodies presented without betraying the spirit of the original film scores. No complex jazz that reinvents and elaborates the original compositions. Instead jazz that mediates between New Orleans rhythms and Italian music colours. This is not a contemporary jazz album as you would expect from a quintet featuring Douglas and Surman, this is not a mere compilation of the best melodies by Rota, this is a beautiful and highly enjoyable sequence of music sketches by Rota masterly and lively played by some of the finest musicians around, and I do not know other places where you can find these film scores performed so well. Recommended.
