Girl Of My Dreams is an album of New Orleans Style Jazz featuring the Fone Jazz Makers.
It starts with Darktown Strutters’ Ball by Shelton Brooks. A happy song from the early 20th Century. Catchy and easily remembered. It sounds just like the ideal album opener.
Girl Of My Dreams, the title track was a popular waltz song of the Twenties and in more recent years had an important role in the movie Angel Heart. The New Orleans style musicians of the Fone Jazz Makers transformed it into a fox-trot.
The recording was produced and recorded by Giulio Cesare Ricci at the Teatro Comunale dei Concordi in Campiglia Marittima (LI). He used Neumann U47 and M49 tube microphones, advanced microphone pre-amplifiers Nagra Audio, Nagra 4s Analog Tape Recorders and line, microphone and supply cables designed by Signor Ricci.
The Original Analog Master Tapes were transferred from the Nagra 4s directly to Stereo DSD.
With this recording, Giulio Cesare Ricci wanted to give the listener a unique experience. It is as if the listener was sitting on an armchair positioned in the ideal position of the theater listening to this fine live recording of New Orleans Style Jazz. In this position, the depth, width, and height of the sound can be highly appreciated.

This album was a bit of a surprise, coming from the audiophile-oriented Italian label Foné. It features a Traditional Jazz Quintet of three Horns, Sousaphone, and Banjo.
The band was formed to play during an Italian audio show. Their recording was made using a Nagra 4S analog recorder and the original tapes were transferred directly to DSD. They performed in a theater with good acoustics. There are some vocals, and the Italian accents give an interesting slant to the performances.
