    Gozzo is on every trumpeter's short list of greatest lead trumpet players. Congrats to your son!

    My father, Frederick "Doc" Mirliani was the band director at New Britain HS in the 30's and 40's. Conrad was his student. My father told me so many stories of Conrad and what an incredible player he was at such a young age.

    He came to school one day and told my father that he was going to leave school and play professionally. Of course my father tried to dissuade him, to no avail. He came back one day to visit my father and played a solo for the whole school with my father accompanying him It was "Stardust", I believe.

    Conrad was the most influential player in my life. I have many of the Mancini albums that he played on. Also, Chuck Sagel put out an album with Goz on lead.

    Your son should be very proud of his award. Goz remains the standard for all lead players.

    I was just looking around for an old friend and stumbled across the question; did anyone know Conrad Gazzo. Yes, I grew up with his son in Burbank. The Gazz's were like an extended family to me. His son, Conrad Gazzo, Jr. was a great Guitar player. It would be amazing to go to their home. Some of the people who would show up there would surprise you. I personally played sax. Mr. Gazzo had his issues, but was a one in a billion trumpet player. Your son who won that award has an award named after the best!
