In Memory: Frank Falcioni

Frank Louis Falcioni

 
Frank was the go-to guitar player for so many years in Reno.  He could do it all - from jazz to country to blues to classical - with the Reno Philharmonic, and he got it right the first time every time.  Frank played in my jazz sextet in the early 1980's and I continued to work with him in countless showroom gigs through 80's and 90's.  When the showrooms closed their doors and no longer needed a house orchestra, Reno Jazz Orchestra founders Jack Caudill and Tony Savage invited him to be our first guitarist. Frank was a founding member. The above photo was taken at our 2009 Jazz in the School's performance and the recording (Speedball) if from our first CD.  He left the RJO a few years ago but continued to be a presence in Reno's music scene until his recent passing.

He will be missed as a friend and musical collaborator but remembered for all the times and music we all shared with him.  A memorial fund has been set up to help his wife Mary and son Frank make through this time.
