    My first thought was that it was a member or description of someone in the Italian Mafia.

    Yee HAW!
    Kinda like taking a set of R.H. golf clubs into the pro shop and asking if they can put left hand shafts on them because you want to buy new ones and your wife wants to use the old ones.

    A fellow band director in this area told a student that over Christmas break he needed to buy a tacet drum. The poor kid looked all over town for one. The pawn shop people had no idea that this was a joke. When he went to the music store he learned the real story.

    Not exactly the same line, but:

    A friend of mine was subbing in a show at Opryland for the very first time. He is an extremely fine player and a real hoss. A lead player mentality. The guys in the show told him that during this one long rest it was the lead player's job to stand up and blow blues over the show. The conductor would waive him off, but he should just keep playing- it's part of the show. He went for it hook, line, and sinker. I wasn't there, but I guess the conductor was understanding once she found out what happened, because he played shows there until they bulldozed the place.

    Check out the Gatti book or the Gatti duets.
    How often do you see 'cupo a tetro' or 'squillante', etc. And the duets are very operatic, and some are very 'godfather'.
