Guaglione


Outkaster

Recommended Posts

Growing up I used to hear this at Italian weddings and celebrations in Niagara Falls or Buffalo, NY. I never noticed the organ in it. Presently a guy know has an Italian radio show locally that uses this to introduce his show La Dolce Vita:

Ah, the days of a guitarist playing at a sane volume! Nice composition there... I recall it from the deep recesses of memory.

"Guaglione" is an Italian melodic superclassic of the Fifties. I've played it with Renato Carosone, with whom I worked briefly in the early Nineties. Not my cup of tea at all, but you always learn something from the old masters.

LOL I haven't heard that name in awhile. I think he died in 2001:

Yes. Despite the fact that his success came from writing and singing old-fashioned pop/swing songs, Carosone was an accomplished musician and a great pianist. Once he played his arrangement of Listz' "La Campanella" during a reharsal break... he left everybody speechless.

EDIT: Note that I'm *not* talking about the very watered-down version that you can find on YouTube. That was a complex piano solo version, played at breakneck speed.

And Lou Monte's son, Ray, a good drummer, we played gigs with one another . Young and foolish perhaps, I used to refer to him as Lou Monte's son!

Marino a lot of Italian musicians are very good. There are kind of freaks of a nature out there that can perform a multiple of genres. He must of been a lot older when you were working with him I would think.

Well, thanks... even though I wouln't call a musician who's proficient in many genres a "freak of nature"... I myself would be quite a freak then. :D

It's mostly hard work of course. :)

 

There's a famous Italian pop song which goes like this:

 

La mia banda suona il rock

e cambia faccia all'occorrenza

Sappiamo che da noi

fare tutto è un'esigenza

 

My band plays rock

and changes faces if need be

We know that here

doing everything is a necessity...

Yeah, about 75 I think.

"freak of nature" is just something we use around here. It is hard work but only so many people can be going from certain styles effortlessly.
