News from USA!

The New York-based magazine THE NEW YORK CITY JAZZ RECORD (May 2016), dedicates his column on the labels to Rudi Records.

Ken Waxman interviews Massimo Iudicone, founder of the label.

Rudi Records Label Spotlight | By Ken Waxman

Realization of one dream coupled with the lessening of funding for others convinced Massimo Iudicone in 2010 that it was time to create his own label. Since that time Rudi Records has released 32 productions by noteworthy musicians from its base in Terracina, about 50 miles southeast of Rome. Iudicone, who also produces music festivals, found the money situation made it difficult to organize concerts.

“So I decided to start a record company to host and document the events that I would have liked in my festivals,” he recalls. At the same time Iudicone, who had been working with The Italian Instabile Orchestra (IIO) since the ‘90s, was organizing projects for friends in the IIO. “We often talked about creating a record linked to the Orchestra, but we were never able to manage it,” he explains. Instead that dream became Rudi. The label’s first jazz release was Wind & Slap featuring IIO members trombonists Giancarlo Schiaffini and Sebi Tramontana, with subsequent sessions featuring such Orchestra stalwarts as tenor saxophonist Daniele Cavallanti, drummer Tiziano Tononi and violinist Emanuele Parrini. Other wellrespected Italian improvisers have recorded for the label as well as a scattering of outsiders including Austrian vocalist Katja Cruz and American saxophonist Sabir Mateen. Most Rudi CDs highlight small groups, but some feature larger ensembles. “I absolutely want to document and make a space for special projects and for musicians who often suffer from lack of popularity but are excellent artists,” states Iudicone. “I believe improvisation in music is one of the highest expressions of contemporary art; it’s to live following the beat of our time.” This beat goes on in different fashions. ...READ MORE

Celebrating DAVID BAKER

A very special project celebrating the life and music of the great jazz composer, author and educator David Baker.

Friends of David, with the support of his widow, are putting together a recording titled Basically Baker Volume 2: The Big Band Music of David Baker featuring the Buselli-Wallarab Jazz Orchestra.  All proceeds generated by sales of the recording will go directly to the David N. Baker Scholarship Fund to provide a financial means for prospective students to attend the Jacobs School of Music Jazz Studies Program.  The CD will be released by Patois Records.

Claim your recording now or join at any other reward level and support the recording, production, and major national release of “Basically Baker Volume 2: The Big Band Music of David Baker” by the Buselli-Wallarab Jazz Orchestra. Your contributions are tax deductible as funds will go to the Patois non-profit organization.

Upon release, 100% of all proceeds generated by sales of the recording will go directly to the David N. Baker Scholarship Fund.

This project seeks to fulfill two very important goals:

·  To expose more people globally to the ingenious jazz composition of David Baker and

·  to provide support for talented young students to study at the Jacobs School of Music Jazz Studies Program. These goals were very important to David and remain so to his family and wife, Lida.

Yes, $50,000 is a big number. Patois Records, a successful label from the Bay Area that has been responsible for producing a number of Grammy nominated recordings in recent years, has pledged full support for the album release and provide its resources for the September launch.

Some of the expenses include:

·  Hiring 20+ world class musicians

·  Music restoration, engraving, and copying

·  Recording, editing, mixing, and mastering

·  Artwork and album design

·  Licensing and copyright fees

·  CD production

·  Radio and print promotion

·  Legal fees

An added feature of this project is the rerelease of Basically Baker, Vol I. Recorded in 2005, this CD made Downbeat Magazine’s “100 best Recordings of the Decade” list in 2010. Virtually impossible to find in recent years, this amazing recording will once again be available!
