There are a number of reasons why I focused on Phil Woods' recordings for Philology Records. Phil called it his "retirement fund' in an interview I did with him a number of years ago and I own at least 30 CDs and 3 LPs (the three volumes of the Macerata Concerts, which haven't been reissued on CDs) featuring Phil as a leader on the label. Paolo Piangiarelli was not only open to featuring the jazz master in small groups, but as a solo artist, with big bands and several meetings with Lee Konitz, in addition to pairing him with brilliant artists like Enrico Pieranunzi, Franco D'Andrea and Stefano Bollani, though it seems a planned recording with Enrico Rava didn't take place. His first meeting with guitarist Irio De Paula so moved him that he switched to clarinet for the entire session. 

I was serviced for a time by Paolo Piangiarelli, but his releases seemed to stop suddenly and I heard that he had been battling depression. It was nearly impossible for him to get the glossy jazz magazines to review his releases and I'm sure distribution was a challenge for a small Italian label. The label website no longer seems to be active.

Sorry to hear that about Piangiarelli.  That's tough.
