“Before being a popularizer Piero was a great jazz pianist. We had known each other for more than 70 years and just yesterday I received a letter from him telling me that he had finally recorded his record”. Talking like this with Piero Angelo’s Adnkronos is his lifelong friend Gigi Marsico, 95, jazz guitarist and also with a past in Rai radio. “In yesterday’s letter – he says – Piero announced to me that he had recorded three other songs, he informed me that on the disc each song would be preceded by his introduction of 30 seconds and asked me if I had succeeded in a search in the archives of another song that he played on the radio a long time ago. ” “Our friendship was a very long one – he says – born precisely for music. In 1947, when we were both at university in Turin, we played in two different bands, so we met and became friends. He was a very good pianist. In 1953, I did a radio show called ‘Trampolino’ and it was dedicated to beginners. I asked Piero to come up with a piece and he made a beautiful arrangement of ‘Lover’. Just in yesterday’s letter he asked me if I had managed to find the master of the his ‘Lover’ to include it on the record. Tonight I was replying to him that I had succeeded and that with my nephew we were cleaning it as much as possible. success “, adds Marsico with emotion. “Right now I am very sad but also aware of the many beautiful and funny moments spent together, even with Enzo Tortora and Mario Pogliotti. How many laughs we had”, he concludes.
