I believe I know Gelso. I studied with Joseph Rossi from about 1943 to about 1949. His studio was at 145 west 45th street. I knew Gelso because we played in the Rossi accordion band together. Often, after rehearsal my father would drop Gelso off at his home on the east side of Manhattan. I lived in the Bronx. Gelso and I competed as soloists and I always came in second to Gelso- he was just so good. Please let me know if this is the same Gelso I knew so many years ago.
