This is intended to be a homage to very many musicians I've loved since I started listening to music. My intention is to tell what I know about them, hoping that those people who like them too, will help me fill numerous gaps, which I may have in their careers and discographies. Sorry, but there are no MP3 audio files here at all, just info (and love for the musicians).

Pete Jolly (keyboards / accordion)


BANDS:
  • Shorty Rogers´ Giants
  • Pete Jolly Trio
  • Terry Gibbs Dream Band
  • The Lighthouse All-Stars
  • West Coast All Stars

BIOGRAPHY:

A great musician, both in piano and accordion. Although most of his career has been made in the jazz camp, I first heard him in albums by Leonard Cohen, Carpenters or Tom Waits. His real name was Peter Ceragioli. He was born on 5th June 1932 in New Haven, USA. One of his first bands was Shorty Rogers Giants. He also led his own Pete Jolly Trio, recording several albums through 3 decades. He was also a member of Terry Gibb Dream Band, and the fantastic combo Lighthouse All Stars.
