another odd series spread over different labels of the Leonardi catalogue. (damn! i need to crack the code one day!)
i guess all of these came from one big session where they tried to make their take on the modern 'american' music styles from the 70s. they cover many genres such as jazz, funk, [psychedelic] rock and even folk. each one is credited to a different composer:
the funniest thing about it is that Remigio Ducros is (or was) Daniela Casa's husband and Paolo Casa is (or was) her cousin. it't a family thing! and a very good one, too! fun listen with some killer compositions.
something really strange is that accroding Leonardi Edizioni right holders N.1 was released in 1977, N.2 in 1975 (!?) and N.3 in 1977. it gets even more odd because the cover art of N.2 has the year 1972 written on it. why in the hell would they make the cover like 3 or even 5 years earlier for something that was like a standard library product for them!? either this release was something really special to them or there is some unknown mysterious story behind it. we wil never know and that's the exciting thing about it...
cover art of N.2 is made by Anna Leonardi
which i have added to the discogs database just now as the initials AL are written on it. no question, it has to be her. she has blessed us with so many wonderful, simple and timeles cover designs! the covers of N.1 and N.3 are from somebody else and iwas not able to identify the signature yet.https://www.discogs.com/Remigio-Ducros- ... se/4477586https://www.discogs.com/Daniela-Casa-Am ... se/4525959https://www.discogs.com/Paolo-Casa-Amer ... se/4526004
