Boardwalk Empire puts one of NYCs hardest working musicians on the map
WhenHBO decided to fork over for aprohibition-era show about Atlantic City racketeer Nucky Thompson, it juiced an entire scenethat of vintage jazz, one of the citys most vibrant subculturesstarting with tapping longtime NYC big-bandleader Vince Giordano as a musical consultant. People across the nation are rediscovering music of the 1920s and 30s via the show, largely thanks to him.
Highly deserved fame and acclaim for a fantastic musician and a first class guy. Happy New Year, Vince, and thanks for your contributions to the forum.
