Riccardo Tesi & Patrick Vaillant ::: Veranda

They recorded only two records, but are still playing together.
Tesi's melodeon and Vaillant's mandolins fit each other effortlessly and Patrick's vocals in Nice vernacular are definitely a must

Riccardo Tesi: melodeon
Patrick Vaillant: mandolin, jinjarra (mandola), voice
Daniel Malavergne: bass tuba ( 3, 7, 10, 11, 13, 14)
Sandy Rivera: marimba, vibraphone, percussions (1, 2, 3, 6, 7, 11, 13)
Michel Marre: trumpet, euphonium (3, 4, 7, 11, 14)

Grazie mille, Danny!

I (almost) already know that I will like this. I love their trio with Gianluigi Trovesi on 'Colline', which was also released by the French label Silex.

Cheers, Lucky!

P.S.: Some days ago I found an otherworldly record by Gianluigi Trovesi and Gianni Coscia - "Radici"! I cannot describe any other than 'chicken skin music'. It was released by the Italian label Egea in 1995, and since I'm long a big fan of Trovesi, I just recommend it to everyone with open ears and a big heart, such as you...

thank you, Lucky.
I have TRovesi/Coscia album and some others things as well

Lucky said...

hi danny, some days has passed - but the trovesi/coscia is still as fine ;)

well, i should have known better, you are italian, and of course you know these 2 extraordinaire musicians!

i have a question: since your blog is called italian FOLK music, you certainly don't post someone like vinicio caposella, don't you?

danny said...

not here, surely, but somewhere else, why not?

Lucky said...

so i have to follow you wherever you go and hunt for vinicio ;)
knowing only the tracks that came with his 'best of', it's definately worth the effort!

Hi :) Wow, you have excellent hard-to-obtain albums by Riccardo. Could it be possible, when you find time, to upload this one again?
Many thanks!
