Primary Instrument: Trumpet

Born: September 25, 1919    

I met Carlo in 1971 while I was working for Anita at her club across the Maine in Frankfurt. Carlo was opening a new club, DOWN BY THE RIVERSIDE and Teddy who was to manage it wasn't able so Carlo asked me to open it. I worked for him most of that year. He gave me an apartment next to his above the club on Mainstrasse as part of our arrangement.

The club was a beautiful place, small but intimate. I think he hoped to bring in some income and musicians. Because I was much younger at the time, mid 20's, my friends and acquaintances were primarily Blues and Folk musicians but our almost nightly jam sessions included Jazz players, classically trained musicians of all degrees of ability. Among the regulars, who played for drinks, was a local Hot Jazz band, a Czech Bluegrass band who sang phonetically! Carlo had a great time with all of these young musicians and was particularly fond of a husband wife duo who played the streets of Frankfurt and from time to time stayed with me (John and Susie, forgot the last name). He would talk music with them for hours and often skipped eating his seemingly favorite meal of boiled potatoes and sour milk to share one of Susie's meals....
