    That's the original that the maker and player, Ernie Fishcbach, used to copy when he made my mandolin - this is from a recent gig:

    The Alta California group is as close to ballo liscio as you'll get in terms of the more 'roots' music dating back to at least the interregnum era and the Bear Flag Republic etc. The Missions like to present their style of music--a fusion of the traditional European dances with some jalapeno spices for good measure. "Fandango at Sonoma" with Los Californios is the CD I bought many years ago. Recorded 1996 for the Institute for Tradtional Studies [dot] org. Check 'em out. They'be got the samba, contradanza, tarantella etc and diatonic accordion. Hey David, I just noticed you as an orchestra musician. I never knew that so I'm glad we were led astray by this discussion. It simply reinforces how influential these dances have been.

    Yes I was part of that wonderful band and played bass, guitar and lap steel on the recording, if I recall. It was back in '96, I had only been living in CA for app. 5 years.

    Anyway, see y'all next week

    It is one of my favorite CDs. I am always drawn back to it. original songs traced back to their origin. Just my kind of music! Authentic Old California music with a twist of lime! yep, see you at the Flamingo!

    Fandango arrived today. Looking forward to taking advantage of the passage of Proposition 1 here in Ann Arbor and giving an ear.

    "Carmelito" Brown? Not sure where that's coming from, but when it comes to religious orders, the Carmelites walk tall. If quietly.

    Oh.....Caramelito, not Carmelito. My bad.

    That's an important distinction.

    Just digging in to Fandango this AM. Fun stuff. Would have been a crusher dance band to have on hand in Austin back in the 90s....

    Great news! This Monday my new book goes to the printer. Then i will be uploading 43, count 'em, 43 titles from the Ninth series of Pietro Tesio's mandolin catalog! In my chapter on Tesio in "italian Mandolin Heroes in America", i discuss how Tesio was trying to reach out to a more international audience and so he sold titles to Century Publishing in Toronto and Manhattan. Identical in every way with Tesio. They even used his publishing frame on the cover sheet and the identical numbering system. These titles in their original box were found in Los Angeles. I'll try to post photos of all this soon!

    I'm going to have to temper my enthusiasm. The 43 titles are from Century (which Tesio used to distribute his titles) but they are all in the ASP tradition and not relevant to the Italian dance tradition. I may go ahead and scan. When that's done, I will create a new publisher folder under CENTURY. None of the titles are to my taste (even if several derive from Tesio's original publication). It's obvious to me these were written for an American audience in the fading post-Victorian decade.
    Sorry to disappoint, I was really hoping there were more Tesio's in the bunch. After I go through them, I might find some arranged by Tesio but right now, it's a bust.
