CD Reviews

Great Venuti
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Of a significantly different style than many of his 20's and 30's recordings, this recording highlights both Venuti's technical ability and his wonderful tone and style. Though he certainly displays his ability in all of his recordings, in this one he seems to take more time with melodies and enjoy them more. "Summertime" for example, is excellent; slow at times, fast at times, never dull, and always beautiful. It is clear that Venuti is enjoying himself. Indeed most of the tracks are composed similarly. Tony Romano is an excellent part of these recordings-not simply accompanying Venuti. His talent and beautiful playing is highlighted, and he is an integral part of the recordings. The vocals in "Angelina" are wonderful, and the interview with Mr. Romano provides the listener with amusing anecdotes of the two(Venuti and Romano) It's a mixture of different styles that can be listened to over and over, without losing much of its freshness."
Two Giants- Must buy

"This is one of Venuti's best albums - he loved it and when he came and visited us in Philadelphia he brough my MOM (his niece) a copy. We almost wore it out and it was relaesed again on vinyl which I bought and I now have thw CD- the ORIGINAL VINYL PRESSING which I still have, has the warmest sound. Joe Venuti was my great uncle and he loved classical music which I played when he came for dinner. His technique and tone and training were classical.

Tony Romano was the best jazz guitarist after Eddie Lang - he is amazing what a tone and phrasing."
