1945 Al Porcino


Comment Al Porcino:
This was by a famous photographer who worked in the Carnegie Hall building; up around the sixth floor he had a studio. What I like about this is, you know, photographers, they take a picture and they have a negative, but if they see there is some imperfection they can touch it up. Now you don’t see it too sharp here, but he took out my bucktooth.
Oh not completely.
Yeah, yeah, well this is a bad….. it’s not sharp, but if I show you the picture it looks like I have perfect teeth. And there I am with my Martin, Committee Martin and my Callicio high note mouthpiece. That was in the mid-60’s – ah, mid 40’s, what am I saying, in the mid-40’s, imagine?
