    I guess basil isn't a grass, is it Sheri?

    I think the vid above with Carlo and Mike should settle once and for all that it is possible to get a convincing "chop" out of a bowlback mandolin.

    Utterly delightful and infectious playing. The guitarist is wonderful. Brings Pablo Hostetter's lighter than air accompaniment to mind.

    Looking forward to Mike's musica all'aglio.

    The above link takes you to the MISCELLANEOUS PUBLISHERS.

    I've just uploaded another "Elvira". This time it is an "Elvira Mazurka" by F. Fazio. Is it Frank Fazio, the well known banjoist? YES! I went back through my Mandracchia chapter and took a look at Frank Fazio in Ancestry. The records show him as a musician in the theatre in 1915 & 1920 census. Furthermore, it turns out Giovanna Mandracchia (1855-1900) married Angelo Fazio (Frank Fazio's father). Both his parents died in 1900.

    John Mandracchia (a child prodigy who wrote a symphony in his early teens) must be Fazio's cousin. Probably a sister or brother took care of John after his parents died when he was only six. That explains Mandracchia's publication of "Elvira."

    Note: Leone took the care to identify the original music publisher as John Mandracchia who decided to become a physician and gave his meager music catalog listings to a fellow Brooklynite, Gaetano Leone who republished it in 1916. "Elvira" must have been a popular girl. Well, there you have it. See attached updated Index. If you print it, stop at page 28. That will cover all the titles. Finding one of Mandracchia's titles is quite rare. I think it's a Sicilian mazurka. Try it out and let me know what you think.

    Hope you are all doing well and keeping the music alive and well! Thanks go out to Normanno in Philly who made this new addition possible.

    Well, I'm still going to leave this as an open investigation. I can't verify with certitude if Frank Fazio is THE Frank Fazio. Stay tuned as I revise my revision! Thanks

    This link takes you to the vocal edition of "Speranze Perdute" and Matacea's other publications. Please keep in mind this is specifically composed and published for SOLO MANDOLIN & VOICE. This style of duets was well-established in the Italian theatre tradition. Someday I would love to hear a great mandolinist and a great tenor vocalist give an entire concert of these priceless and wonderful duets.

    Those of you who downloaded the huge PDF file with Morelli's biography and all the known scores of Morelli's "Speranze Perdute" (about 100+ pages), today's announcement caps off the story of his famous waltz. Whereas all the editions dating back to 1900 are instrumental arrangements, this PDF is the one and only edition of a vocal-mandolin score. Possibly, it was intended for the treacly vaudevillian songs for the Italian stage. In 1918 when Morelli died during the pandemic, a Manhattan music publisher in Little Italy published his waltz with lyrics in 1920. Poet and musician Giovanni Del Colle's composed lyrics for Morelli's waltz and it gave him immortality. If it weren't for Matacea (AKA Natale de Palma), this melody with lyrics might never have been brought into existence.

    Should you want to see the entire mandolin social history folder with related mandolin music and stories, you may search at Academia.edu where I house all my publications. Thank you, Sheri Mignano Crawford

    P.S. And a big thank you goes out to Norman Giorno-Calapristi and to his grandfather Luigi Giorno who had the good sense to collect everything he could get his hands on! If it weren't for his frequent pilgrimages to Manhattan, we would know so little of this crucial time in Italian musicians after they immigrated to America.

    P.S. I've attached the Matacea vocal-mandolin score to make it easier.

    Thanks, Sheri!

    Stelle d'or, voi soltanto potete le dir le speranze perdute d'amor. Se essa non torna mi fanno morir....

    Okay, there you have it.

    Great mandolin tune, of course. Still not sure why it is so popular at weddings. (It is a good waltz for dancing.)

    You can never get enough of "Elvira" regardless if she's a polka or a mazurka! In this case, it's Cavalieri's polka published by Paolilli (Providence, RI). Some of you already know of the interesting transfer that took place between Canoro and Paolilli c. 1926. Not sure exactly how Elvira fit into this, since it's not a Canoro title. However, there is no indication as to who the arranger or whose catalog it came from. That should be an easy discovery by comparing/contrasting the Mandolin 2 part (which exhibits the most variation of all the parts). Could be from Di Bella?

    see attached files: updated INDEX 3.2.21 -- 29 pp, landscape
    Elvira polka (housed in the A. Paolilli folder) and attached here as well.

    Replying to October 21, 2018 post and to update the "Italian Vintage Recordings" folder. Two new mp4's with Vicari on mandolin & an unknown guitarist.
    Giovanni Vicari plays two compositions by Vincenzo Cesarino (published with Cerabino but without the manuscripts, it is impossible to say who might have
    published them). 1. Gina Mazurka 2. La Montagnola polca

    These recordings have provenance. Originally recorded on metal disc somewhere in Manhattan, unknown venue. Apparently, Vicari made these recordings available to Joe Grosso, Philadelphia multi-instrumentalist. Later, Luigi Giorno's grandson (Norman) worked to convert, and then to transfer to mp4.

    NEW INDEX attached with these new titles --everything resides in the folder link as above.

    Both those joints are taken at a pretty intense clip.

    Both of those recordings are on an LP compilation of Vicari's recordings titled "Mandolinata" - those recordings all seem to be drawn from 78rpm recordings done by Vicari for the Harmonia and Nightingale labels, both in NYC. I would LOVE to know who Vicari's guitarist was on these recordings and the Duo Vicari recordings on Columbia - what an ace!

    Here's a bold but plausible answer to Frankie's inquiry about Vicari recordings. It is predicated on the notion that "overdubbing" (?) or "dubbing" started around the time that Vicari made a ton of recordings (1929).

    While we might know him as a mandolinist, he recorded banjo solos and was well known as a guitarist, too. The only guitarist who recorded with Vicari was Eugenio Cibelli, a very famous conductor, vocalist, & mandolinist but Cibelli's ego was too big to not want the credits on a record.

    That leaves me with a probable answer: Vicari dubbed himself, not bothering to credit himself because he knew that the seamless recording was evidence that only he could have provided the harmonic support to his mandolin playing.

    Of course, it doesn't answer the question as to who comprised the Vicari Trio. We still don't know who the the second and third musicians were...unless...of course, Vicari played all the parts?

    One other possibility: Flaminio Pignoloni ran in these circles. He appears playing guitar on a couple of recordings with Cibelli. Pignoloni may have just been too modest about getting proper credit.

    The search is on!

    P.S. Without access to the recordings that Frankie mentions, I can't compare or contrast Frankie's recordings with the metal disc recordings made in Manhattan & brought to Germantown, Philly. Is it possible they were gifted to Philly's Joe Grosso, as a thank you? He played mandolin, not guitar, but maybe he helped in some way on the recordings?

    That's interesting, I thought it was around the early 40's when Sidney Bechet recorded a tune playing all the instrument parts, that overdubbing was developed. Was overdubbing used that early on ?

    I think that's unlikely, except in some experimental context - these Harmonia and Nightingale sessions were probably anything but experimental, being basically local, budget labels. I do have examples of tunes where Vicari is playing Hawaiian guitar, and then appears to switch to mandolin or regular guitar - on those sessions, he probably made double rate! There are other sessions where Vicari provides guitar backup for the Ukrainian mandolinist Joseph Davidenko (also sessions where Cibelli backed him up, sometimes in duet with Alfredo).

    Vicari was definitely an excellent and well-rounded guitarist, and I imagine he was pretty demanding of his accompanists. The guitarist on the Harmonia/Nightingale recordings doesn't sound like E. Cibelli to me at all. On these later recordings, it sounds like someone steeped in both Italian music and the pop harmony of the day, and NYC would have been simply awash with excellent guitarists of Italian heritage at this point. It could have been someone we know about (Al Valenti, maybe?), or someone that Vicari knew from his other professional engagements, whose name we might never know for sure.

    MATACEA FOLDER (to download new title)

    https://www.dropbox.com/sh/fkfrgnk12...ly4cziLQa?dl=0

    Attached updated Index to all publishers' titles.

    It has been several years since I modified the Arturo Matacea folder (AKA Natale Di Palma). This multitalented music publisher specialized in vocal-mandolin entertainment for the Italian theater (macchietta). The newly uploaded "Vulimmo a Dalmazzio e Durazzo", published in February 1919, advocated the Irredentist theme and demanded that the Italian cities be returned to their rightful owners: Italy! As usual, for Italian theater, it is composed for tenor and mandolin accompaniment. It is allegedly composed by Di Capua (who had died in 1917). It is very likely that Matacea seized on an original Di Capua (O Sole Mio) composition, changed the title and added Calandra's lyrics to suit the title. Keep in mind that the U.S. did not belong or adhere to the international copyright convention's rulings. Sorry, TMI!

    And thank you Sheri for your posting and summary of this rare piece from my grandfather's collection. Such a revealing and pivotal piece in the turn of the century Italian"Irredentist" and "Macchietta" tradition here in the small theatres in Philadelphia and NYC Little Italies. These lyrics almost always in the Neapolitan dialect really pack a punch--as anyone who can read or understand Neapolitan can see. They really have some choice words to say to the Emperor of Austria-Hungary who they refer to irreverenyly as ",,Carluccio"..... as they DEMAND the lands along the Dalmatian coast (present day Croatia) and Durazzo in Albania be annexed to the Kingdom of Italy.

    The lively tarantella like rythm and dance in 6/8 time made it an instant hit in the Italian theatres and Sunday afternoon mando/voce, and piano sessions in many an after dinner parlor recital in the Italian homes here in Philadelphia and NYC. Matacea was at his best when promoting and publishing these kinds of titles. This was most likely drawn from one of the many Neapolitan songs and dances in the DiCapua repertoire Think 'O Sole Mio Serenata d' 'e Rrose, Maria Marì, and others. I hope to find more of these rare Neapolitan/ Matacea gems as I continue to soft thru my grandfathers collection.

    Here's the link to the Pietro Tesio folder with two new titles: "El Dorado" (Ferraro) and "Toujours on Jamais" (Waldteufel) These new titles were found in Rudy Cipolla's "Trio Argentine" archives. I'm working on scanning the sheet music his trio played in the 1930s. In the meantime, here are two titles straight out of ballo liscio but used for Rudy's trio in the 1930s.

    Thank you Scott and kudos to Guggino & Barrett for bringing this project to fruition! It was at least four years ago when Mike and I jammed at Volpi's Italian restaurant and met for the first time. We ran through the "Mandolin Melodies" book and vaguely talked about a CD. With a very challenging year or so, I hope "Mia Dolce Farfalla" advances the notion that Italian immigrant mandolinists were brilliant, competent composers. Now we can all learn about their considerable contributions to the development of Italian music in America. Mille Grazie! Plus, it's a great interview!

    Don't forget that many of these titles are housed as mp3 & mp4 recordings in the Dropbox.
    The above link takes you to these vintage recordings! There's an index telling you the year it was recorded and who recorded it. ENJOY!

    I just uploaded "Delirio D'Amore" and updated Index (see attached). The Giorno Trio recorded it in September 1951 outside a balcony window in Philadelphia. There is a long romantic balcony tradition in Italian mandolin playing that dates back to Naples. In this case, the father of the bride (Luigi Giorno and his musical partners) appeared the night before the wedding to serenade her with a medley of songs. This evening soirée included Onofrio Di Bella's mazurka that is heard as a recurring theme on Mike Guggino's CD

    Keep this in mind while you're listening. Giorno set up a microphone and dangled it from the 3rd floor above the bride. Ran downstairs to join his colleagues and someone pushed the button on the evening serenade. (BTW, I talk about this tradition in "Mandolins, Like Salami."

    The haunting melody you hear on Mike's new CD resided in his grandfather's long memory and is, in fact, the opening strains of Di Bella's mazurka. Thanks to Norman Giorno-Calapristi for his instant recall.

    Go to that Dropbox link where you'll find about 75 recordings to download. These date back to very early (primitive) recordings and some more recent ones in variations locations: Germantown, PA; Italian radio; Manhattan's Di Bella store; Caffe Trieste, San Francisco

    Great story, Sheri....I don't recall it from MLS but will go back and find it.

    Fun mazurka, too. Going to add that to the posse right away.

    Thanks!
