2023 1-4955-1092-1 "[H]ere are my recollections, remembrances, memoirs and performances essentially from 1956 through 1958 when I lived with Joe in New Haven, Connecticut, and in later years when performing with him. Essentially it is a brief epoch of the time I spent with him, but, as the reader will discover, his influence lives on today with an even greater impact now, than it had when I lived with him." - David Boccagna (Memoirs Prelude)
2023 1-4955-1093-9 "Our present system of musical notation can prescribe precisely what is to be played; however, it can only hint, and very vaguely at best, at how it is to be played. To aid the performer in the "how," descriptive terms are employed. ...[But] terms designed to aid can also confuse or obscure the composer's intentions unless there is a common musical understanding shared by both the composer and performer. It is with the intent to further that understanding that this compendium was compiled: to broaden the ground shared by the composer and performer by making available additional synonyms from which the composer could select suitable language and also to which the performer could refer." -David L. Boccagna (Introduction)
