RUGOLO Pete

RUGOLO PETE, PETER (LEAD)

San Pietro di Patti, Messina, Sicilia, Italia. 25/12/1915.

All’età di quattro anni è emigrato con la famiglia negli Stati Uniti e al Mills College di San Francisco ha completato gli studi musicali sotto la guida di Darius Milhaud nel 1940. Ha debuttato nell’orchestrina di Leon Mohica, quindi ha suonato con Jimmy Grier e suonato e arrangiato con Johnny Richards, iniziando a dimostrare la sua grande abilità proprio come arrangiatore. Nel 1949 ha lavorato con Stan Kenton, che deve in buona parte a Rugolo ed ai suoi brillanti arrangiamenti il suo grande successo e la sua vasta popolarità. Ha gestito per breve tempo nel 1954 una sua ottima orchestra, della quale ci sono delle ottime registrazioni. E’ stato direttore musicale della Capitol e della Mercury. Dal 1950 è vissuto a Los Angeles dove ha lavorato principalmente per il cinema e la televisione. Nel 1965 ha scritto per la Neophonic Orchestra di Kenton, ha registrato anche con Eddie Safranski, Vido Musso, Charlie Barnet, la Metronone All Stars, i Best From The West, Terry Gibbs. E’ stato senz’altro il miglior arrangiatore moderno anche se non nei canoni del Jazz più puro. E’ stato il creatore del progressive jazz. Profondo conoscitore ed ammiratore di Debussy, Ravel e Stravinskij.

RUMMEL JACK, THOMAS (P)

Tacoma, Washington. 17/8/1939.

Ha preso le prime lezioni di pianoforte alla scuola dell’obbligo ed in seguito ha studiato il jazz con un maestro di una orchestra locale. Ha conosciuto il ragtime nel 1950 e lo ha approfondito sino al 1970. Musicista originario dello stato di Washington ha vissuto per oltre venti anni nella cittadina di Boulder e fa parte da dieci anni della KGNU”Ragtime America”associazione che promulga e fa la storia di questo genere di jazz. Egli ne è un promotore accanito oltre che un valente interprete ed un ottimo compositore. Studioso molto profondo del ragtime sin dalle origini ed anche ottimo conoscitore di tutta la musica americana. Attualmente è additato come uno dei migliori compositore di ragtime viventi. E’ rimasto comunque musicista dilettante, svolgendo la sua vera professione di odontoiatra a Boulder nel Colorado.
