“Most centrally, so yes, expect leg lifts … perfect!” It can happen to all the Summer Jamboree, also that the objective of your bridge ends a pin up exceptional Violetta Zironi star of X Factor.
The “girl ukulele” has just performed on stage at the Forum Annonario where, for sixteen years now, every summer peep legends of rock ‘n roll.
In front of the machine Violetta is relaxed and lends, amused, to my request of “laying pin”. And I, on the other hand, I can not help but photograph it: a woman who plays Johnny Cash and duets with Ben E. King has my full attention.
Yeah, Ben! I forgot to introduce him. Maybe you will remember to “Stand by Me”, a romantic love song for over half a century is transmitted by radio stations around the world. Loose, affable, sorrdiente Mr. King seems “forget” to be an icon of international music and laughs and jokes with us photographers and journalists, as if we were all old friends.
Well, what is your favorite Italian singer?
“My favorite singer? Mina, of course! ”
“Well, yes, but why do you ask?”
How why? Do not know “I will pray for you”?
“Of course, the italian version of ‘Stand by Me’. You know, I’ve been in your country several times, if I remember correctly the first in 1965, in Rome. And now in Senigallia guest this highly successful festival with Violetta and a voice that, trust me, going places! ”
I think: “I hope I can get to her age well.”
Old singer is not the first that I know: after Marshall Lytle (Bill Haley and his Comets) and Duane Eddy (you remember Duane?) I thought I’d seen and experienced all. Yeah, I thought, because chatting with Ben and have a drink with Slim Jim Phantom of the Stray Cats drummer has another story to tell the grandchildren.
But like last year they are still chasing pin and certainly will not leave you disappointed.
Slide away from backstage and hit the Rock, the heart of the festival. Girls in tight dresses 50’s, popping up from all over, you’ll be spoiled for choice.
Click on the song Shake Rattle & Roll, See you later alligator and on the ‘heavy sound of Hot Boogie Chillun. They, the pin, I run across in the poses the most fun:
there is the soldier complete with helmet sitting on Willis American, one that does the trick on the mirror of the Buick, the other that even lift your skirt well above the knees … and the goal trembles.
I do not keep count of more photos: you can not apply mathematics to the beauty that, however, it would also be fair was shared.
I leave, then, the bridge in the hands of Gabriel, my “Virgil” Senigagliesi in hot nights, and I launch into a wild lindy hop before the Rocca then, after midnight, the Rotonda a Mare. For a while ‘by reporters I spend to be “news”.
Dancing in a local 1938 to the sea, I’ll tell you, it is an opportunity that does not happen often and the audience is much reduced compared to that crowd the streets. Here comes who knows how to move and those who have the ‘courage’, crossed the track, to invite the followers to dance, overcoming shyness and shame.
To set the tone to the evening dance we think the fascinating Miss Grace Hall, Italian burlesque diva recently returned from Canada to resume the reins of the Summer Jamboree. And, in an elegant dress style Greta Garbo, after a short speech, the band breaks with boogie and swing.
To the tune of Did You See Jackie Robinson Hit That Ball and immortal Fever by Peggy Lee I become Jerry Wooters, ‘posh’ Gangster Squad detective, swinging his legs to the rhythm of music. I found my Emma Stone in a shy girl of Modena, after swingout, texas and frankie six count (steps of lindy hop) leaves even immortalized on a powerful and elegant Cadillac Deville 1957, last sequence and positioning procedure of exception before the titles tail.
