Description
Recently unearthed tapes from the estate of Elsie Bianchi, recorded 1968 at Chateau Fleur De Lis in Atlanta/ Georgia. Unknown repertoire of her Swiss trio, with Elsie and Siro Bianchi performing on instruments they otherwise never recorded with: hammond organ, tenor saxophone and flute - including "Now's the Time", "Pennies From Heaven", "Alice In Wonderland", "Swingin' Shepherd Blues" and even a French sung version of "Take Five". Probably the final and last issued music of Elsie Bianchi, carefully mastered for 6-Page-Digipack-CD and limited vinyl LP, including new sleeve notes and many forgotten pictures of the trio taken during the late 1960s in USA.

This recording may be the final and last issued music of Elsie Bianchi. It's significant for two reasons: it shows a repertoire of her trio that was never recorded before, and also presents Elsie and Siro Bianchi performing on instruments they otherwise never recorded with. Young DJs of today may know her recording of the song "Little Bird", a composition by Pete Jolly, taken from Bianchi's only studio album "The Sweetest Sound". Since Bianchi rarely recorded and not presented by an international label, her music, sadly, is only known to a niche jazz audience. It's wonderful to hear her in another rare live recording, with this new LP/CD of Sonorama Records. Hopefully it will help fill the gap, and spread the word about this overlooked talent.
