A topnotch studio room musician and initial trumpeter, Conrad Gozzo was also an experienced (but underutilized) jazz soloist. He originally researched with his dad (a trumpet instructor) and in 1938 began his professional profession by signing up for Isham Jones’ Orchestra. Gozzo got stints using the big rings of Tommy Reynolds, Crimson Norvo, Johnny “Scat” Davis, Bob Chester and Claude Thornhill (1941-42). He caused Benny Goodman for 90 days and spent amount of time in the armed forces (addressing enjoy with Artie Shaw’s Navy music group). After his release, Gozzo was with Woody Herman’s Initial Herd (1945-46), Boyd Raeburn and Tex Beneke. In every of those rings, he rarely got solos but his warm audio and amazing range were regarded major resources. In 1947 Gozzo (who was simply still simply 25) resolved in LA where he became an extremely busy studio room musician, appearing on the many recordings through the following 17 years. He also performed for radio displays, television and movies. His loss of life from a coronary attack at age 42 was a tragic end to some productive profession. Conrad Gozzo just led one record recording, an extended out-of-print arranged for Victor in 1955 (Gozz THE FANTASTIC) that presented him having a big music group, a sextet along with strings.
