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).

Frank Marocco (accordion)


BANDS:
  • Les Brown Orchestra
  • Frank Marocco Group

BIOGRAPHY:

Wonderful accordion player, Frank Marocco was born on January 2nd, 1931 in Joliet, Illinois, USA. He started studying classical music, but his passion was jazz.

AND THEN...


Frank Marocco started playing in dozens of sessions, also in soundtracks (such as Under the Tuscan sun or Unfaithful, both starred by the wonderful Diane Lane). His most famous session was playing in Beach Boys seminal album Pet sounds, but he appears in all sorts of albums, from Rosemary Clooney to Shakira.

Frank also recorded many solo albums along his lengthy career, but I´ve just mentioned the ones I know. I´m missing lots of albums in his discography, but anyway I include this short page as a tribute to him.

He passed away on March 3rd, 2012 in San Fernando Valley, California, USA. He was 81.
