Oreste Vessella

Oreste Vessella (1882–1963) was the leader of the popular Vessella's Italian Band, which recorded for Victor, Brunswick, and Edison. Vessella was born in Alife, Italy and became clarinet soloist of the Alife Orchestra at the age of twelve. He came to America in 1901 and shortly thereafter became the conductor of the all-Italian, New York–based Savoia Band. Such was his renown that this group soon became known as Vessella's Band.
