Louis Prima was the most extroverted, witty and fun trumpeter and jazz singer of the late fifties and early sixties. Mixing native English, he had been born as jazz, in
New Orleans, with the maternal Italian, made funny parodies turned into songs immortal In one of his discs they defined to him like "Louis Prima, the wildest". That is, "the most wild". Because it was a hurricane on stage and on their records. I had a training in which was the saxophonist Sam Butera with whom he maintained glorious musical challenges and in which he appeared, for a few years, his wife, the singer Keely Smith. His are songs like "Just a gigolo "," Angelina ", dedicated his mother," Oh Mary ", imitation of an old Neapolitan romanza, "Buona sera" with its impressive change of pace, "Pennies from heaven" or "Sing, sing, sing"
which he wrote himself. Fifty-one impressive cannonballs of rhythm and vitality. We do not we can lose.
