Charlie Camilleri Music Library
I am the founder and director of the 16-piece Astoria Big Band. The late arranger/composer/trumpeter Charlie Camilleri, a gifted musician, wrote an entire library of arrangements of jazz standards for our band. The copies are handwritten and need to be transferred to computer and eventually published. We are raising $10,000 to fund this project and to support this year's three concerts on the two themes of Queens Jazz History and Women Composers of Popular Music.+ Read More
The first of 40 arrangements, Pent-Up House, written by Charlie circa 1991, is underway. Chris Rinaman is doing a beautiful job with computerizing and editing. We are excited and once again, thanks to all of you! Please tell friends who may be interested in contributing!
