The great fooler

by Mark Gabrish Conlan

Mike Mosiello? That wouldn't surprise me. I first heard him on the 1960's Historical Records LP "Rare and Hot!," which featured several sides by Mosiello and his frequent partner, reedman Andy Sannella, for the Grey Gull label. In the liner notes for "Rare and Hot!," Carl Kenzidora, Jr. called Mosiello and Sannella "the great foolers" because so many of their records had been misattributed to other, more illustrious musicians. One Mosiello session for Grey Gull was even reissued with the trumpet credited to King Oliver!
