Ferdinando Argenti and Enrico Rosa: To the Old Friendship (2003)
Enrico Rosa, an Italian expatriate to Copenhagen, has been an associate of Argenti’s for many years. They share an interest in mainstream jazz and come together here to make some fine examples of that genre. Rosa divides his time between electric and acoustic guitars. The former is demonstrated in the delightful complexity of Rosa’s "Sqwaqwaz" and the latter in the wistful whimsy of his "Boston." Rosa’s wife, Eva, provides alto recorder on the latter tune and the Joe Pass-ballad-like "Mondiale." All of these elements make for an entertaining and easily listened to collection of tunes. This disc is worth seeking out.
