The first collection in the world of Italian jazz, by STEFANO MASTRUZZI

Curated by Stefano Mastruzzi, director of the Saint Louis College of Music, with the advice of Adriano Mazzoletti, author of important essays on Italian jazz.

More than 340 pages of scores have been the subject of care and attention and at the same time uniformity of reading for professionals or jazz enthusiasts. ITALIAN JAZZ REAL BOOK represents a significant contribution to the dissemination and enhancement of Italian jazz music in Europe and the rest of the world.

It’s exciting to trace the stages of the development of jazz culture in Italy through the analysis of hundreds of scores.

  • Ideal historical route from the 1950s to the present day. American influence finds here a very fertile ground capable of combining jazz language with sensitivity.
  • The care devoted to the scores is the aim, respecting the autographs of the authors, to facilitate their reading and interpretation by musicians from all over the world.

In essence, these adjustments are necessary to make the scores universally recognizable, without altering their contents. The language consolidated by the series of Real Book published in recent decades. In the selection of the authors and their works, a selective criterion is adopted that takes into account the most innovative musical characteristic of the jazz form.

Italian jazz Real book, I am sure that this first work is a due contribution towards a significant artistic production now of world dominance. The real book was thought out andined by a musician for all musicians.
