Album Notes
Dear listener, this CD of the Rollini Project gives you an overall view of the musical world of bass saxophone virtuoso Adrian Rollini.
Although Rollini’s bass sax discography is limited for only 16 years, (1922-1938) his music created a true musical bridge between the roaring 20s and the early swing era.

The tremendous cornet and trumpet work of Malo Mazurié perfectly fits into any of the styles that we needed here. You’ll hear him playing like Bix Beiderbecke on all the material of the 1920s, then he plays sweet trumpet on Sugar and swinging hot on Bugle Call Rag. David Lukács’s distinctive way of playing the original Frankie Trumbauer reed section melody on Blue River makes it clear that he has a deep understanding in this kind of music. Harry Kanters’ piano solo on Three Blind Mice recalls the style of Arthur Schutt, additionally giving some extra spicing to our mice. The acoustic guitar sound of Félix recreates the style of Allan Reuss. He also plays original Reuss solos on Somebody Loves Me and Sugar. On After You’ve Gone you’ll also hear him playing lines on his banjo that he also whistles at the same time.

In addition to the bonus track, Embraceable You, there are 2 other tracks Rollini did not record. Since Rollini moved temporarily to England, where one of his originals, Dixie, was recorded with the Fred Elizalde band, it was Min Leimbrook who played the bass on the original Bix Gang track, Somebody Stole My Gal. We extended this one leaving place for a bass sax solo and also some extra ensembles at the end like a jam session. The other one is Peg O’ My Heart, which is a dedication to the memory of our dear friend, Robert Veen, who encouraged me to take the first steps of playing the saxophone and also helped me to get me my bass sax.
