    Rigoli, Carl Vincent

    Composer and percussionist from Astoria Queens in New York who studied at the Manhattan School of Music and began playing professionally at the age of sixteen.  He landed a gig at the Waldorf Astoria and played percussion and vibes for the likes of Tony Bennett, Carol Lawrence, Julie London, Johnny Mathis, and Frank Sinatra. 

     

    In 1970, he made the great egress to L.A. and wound up doing quite a bit of film and television work.  His filmography includes Grease 2, The Little Mermaid, Rocky II, and Shogun.  TV credits include Barnaby Jones, Bosom Buddies, Happy Days, Laverne and Shirley, Little House on the Prairie, Major Dad, and The Tonight Show. 

     

    He has been a member of Dave Angel’s Big Jazz Band and the Jim Morris Band, although he is best known for his own ensembles, which have varied in size from three to five members. 

     

    His album releases comprise Easy Street, Groovin’ Easy, Home Cookin, Journey, Mellow Pickin, New Directions, Pasquale Square, Reflections, and Vibe Man. 

     

    He is also active as a live performer, appearing at venues such as Jazz at the Merc, with Easy Street pianist John Rodby, and Spazio in Sherman Oaks, California.
