“Alla ricerca del disco perduto”

Vittorio Castelli


Raiders of the Lost Record

Hereby we will consider in particular the relations between jazz and record experts. The search for “hidden treasures”, such as unpublished live recordings, has brought to the growth of collections of records which are very interesting from a musicological point of view. We will examine various types of collectors, from those who relate to the record as an object, to those who are interested in its “musical message”. The exemplary story of the collector Dick Rieber has inspired the latter. The relation between collector and music producer has always been fruitful prolific and very often the two characters are the same person. Both theoretical and material contributions of collectors to discography are always very interesting. In the end we will examine the situation in Italy and we will show the personal story of the author who contributed to the production of plenty of music brands.
