Description:
One of the outstanding American Accordion Artistes, EUGENE ETTORE had the good fortune to be born into the inside circle of the Stateside musical merry-go-round. His father was a noted vaudevillian and put the musical inclinations of his sond under the capable guidance of a series of teachers who gave him a solid grounding in Solfeggio, Harmony, Composition and Musical Appreciation.

With such a good foundation of Theory, plus the professional experience of running his own Trio, Ettore then developed his bent for arresting and original Composition. World War II gave the now rapidly rising Star an even wider practical experience in many branches of the professional Musician's life, including spells in Military and Dance bands, and the responsibility of running a Special Services Radio Show Quintet.

Returning to Civilian life shortly before the war's end, Eugene Ettore took over the direction of the celebrated Nunzio Accordion School whole Charles Nunzio was still in the U.S.Navy. At that time he composed his now famous "Bass'n Boogie". Continuing his studeis of Theory and Harmony, Ettore then started recording and forged ahead with his Composing activities.

Eugene Ettore was a friend of mine and dedicated "Spanish Holiday" to me. I was a guest of Ettore's family in New Jersey, USA, and Eugene took me around for my appointments in New York - e.g. to Pietro Frosini in the broadcasting studio. In this way, he became well-known to the leading accordion personalities in New York, such as Pietro Diero, father and son, and Charles Magnante.

From an Italian-American background, Eugene Ettore carried on the accordion tradition of Deiro, father and son, and Charles Magnante.

From an Italian-American background, Eugene Ettore carried on the accordion tradition of Deiro and Frosini, but with a very modern and individualistic style. The music in this recordingranges from boogie to classical and is always colourful, vibrant and exciting.
