1927 Harpist Eugene Capobianco born on 29 March 1927 in Hartford, Connecticut was known professionally as Gene Bianco. Died 7 May 2007, Queens, New York City, New York.


 He started off his career as a classical virtuoso harpist, and toured with major symphony orchestras. His love for jazz prompted him to use harp as a jazz instrument. Having appeared as a solo act in a variety of New York nightclubs, he later teamed up with guitarist Mundell Lowe and percussionist Joe Venuto to form a jazz trio which released an album on the Major Records label. Soon after, RCA signed the group to a three-album contract, under which the albums "Stringin' the Standards" and "Harp, Skip and Jump!" were released. We are playing several of his selections on our Internet radio stream.
