    https://www.dropbox.com/sh/0ajd1m3kv...01pe8LiKa?dl=0 (September 2021 edition) You can download it.

    This link takes you to a powerpoint presentation that's been turned into a PDF. Updated as I'm working on a fifth book--it will be all about Rudy. It will actually be an E-Book, my first one. That should make Rudy much more accessible around the world. I'll tell his story using the images from this preliminary power point slide show.

    So sorry we won't meet at CMSA San Diego, but I hope we can connect in our virtual workshops. I will be including Rudy's Aguela Negro as a mandocello solo; I know it has a piano accompaniment, but it stands on its own nicely, and even with the piano part, it IS a mandocello solo.
    Thank you for all the wonderful work you are doing. OMO has a concert this Sunday; after that I'm going to talk to the leadership about the piece Rudy wrote for the Portland group.

    I've created a 6 minute glimpse into Rudy's life. All the (47) images derive from my compilation of photographs I've accumulated and finally were able to credit and describe at length. This video contains no music bed and no voice-over narration. Just slides and each one is about 8 seconds duration. Enough time to follow along and enjoy the life of Rudy Cipolla, from the time he was a child in a rural village in Southern Italy all the way to San Francisco. (Attached descriptions and credits for each slide)

    That was totally wonderful, Sher! Thanks so much for putting that together and sharing.

    So many fun photos from the '30s tangophilia. Great hats, cool duds.

    Loved seeing Matteo with that F4, btw. Take that Gibson haters.....

    Some more insight into what a mandolin town SF has been.

    The premier mandotown in American. (Sorry, Nashville.)

    What a tribute to Rudy "The Owl" Cipolla. (Or should I say "The Onion"....)
