    Re: De Wick - Iucci mandolins

    Gennaro Iucci (b. 1855) and his son Michael (b. 1884) had a factory on Broome St. Since some of the links don't work, I thought I'd upload this advertisement of Michael's harp guitar which I found in...

    This link will take you to the Method Books folder: Gavitti, Pignoloni, and Tesio. Each can be invaluable assistance to...
  3. Re: Who was the first American mandolin manufacturer?

    Bohmann did apply for patents and received a few. I don't have the count exactly--certainly not as many as Lyon & Healy but
    Bohmann was no fool. I suggest further study and search of the on-line...
  4. Re: Is there an archive of American Guild materials anywhere?

    I was browsing earlier today and found Chas. Levin mentioned in a June 1906 concert reviewed with program in the "Cadenza" Vol. 13, No.1 (Sep. issue). see attached. BTW, I use the NYPL to access the...

  7. Re: Drop Box is now available for Italian 'ballo liscio' sheet mu

    When my HEROES book began to take shape, gosh, 4-5 years ago, I had to decide on the geographical areas where the Italian communities were significant enough. I purposely left Chicago out for several...
  8. Re: Drop Box is now available for Italian 'ballo liscio' sheet mu

    Yes, I've read the books and you've read my mind. I already know that I want John Turturro to direct and star in it. I'd cast him as Tafarella! I've not thought about the other composers but I'd like...
  9. Re: Drop Box is now available for Italian 'ballo liscio' sheet mu

    This story of recovery and future restoration comes from Luigi Giorno's grandson, Norman. It is one of the many actual investigations that have been launched over the course of the past few years...
  10. Re: Drop Box is now available for Italian 'ballo liscio' sheet mu

    Hmmm. You bring up good points, Jim. I segregate publishers...it's the only sane thing to do but others feel differently. I think some like to see all the titles clustered, others prefer that a...
  11. Re: Drop Box is now available for Italian 'ballo liscio' sheet mu

    For compare and contrast purposes, it is always great fun to evaluate the various arrangements. Pignoloni was a multi-instrumentalist and I think that guitarists who question the so-called simplistic...

    The Drop Box links are not forever as much as we think that everything posted on the internet might be.
    I'm reposting fresh links for all the latecomers--well--for everyone. I'd like everyone to...

    Fugazotto did a great job cataloging and we spoke briefly while I was writing my Tarantola chapter. Living in Italy, she did not and still does not have much access to what we have here re: New York...

    Cesare Pezzolo was one of six brothers--all accordionists--who lived in and around San Francisco--. I played this as a kid and still do. It's usually requested by very old accordionists. I've...

    Yes, Mick, the Andrini brothers (all five of them) are in my "Mandolins, Like Salami." See pg. 76 where I talk about the "mystic smoke" that Lawrence Andrini produced with a tube of special past--the...

    mea culpa!
    I wanted to correct my statement about Olcott being a teenager in 1914. She was not, rather she was about 30 years old (born 1885) when she moved to New York to assist Bone in his...

    I apologize for unintended redundancy. I had missed some earlier postings. Nevertheless, wanted to add that I did find Lyon & Healy advertisements in several Chicago directories (1870s) and some...
  23. Re: Who was the first American mandolin manufacturer?

    A careful reading of MTR's November 19, 1904, Vol. 39, No. 21 shows just how tight the race was with Bohmann given a slight edge over Lyon & Healy. see attached
  24. Re: Who was the first American mandolin manufacturer?

    Lots to digest and I agree on most points made; however, I will say that the original question should have been expressed in this way: the first musical instruments manufacturer who happened to also...
  25. Re: Who was the first American mandolin manufacturer?

    You bet he is credible. Clarence Lockhart Partee was the founder and an editor of "Cadenza." He sold it to Walter Jacobs in Boston around 1907.

    Partee was a student of Bohmann but what we don't...
