The Candoli brothers are very underrated in my opinion, they both are cold blooded, killer,demon, trumpet players!!!!
R.I.P. Pete get together with Clifford, Miles, Sweets, and all the rest of the trumpet players, and have a jam session!

I was moved to hear of the passing of Pete Condoli. I will keep a good thought for all of you in the days ahead. This website is beautifully done and pays homage to two great musicians. Thanks for sharing the images in the photo section.

One of my trumpet idols has gone. Thanks Pete for great music you thrilled me with over the years.. To quote a song, "In this world of ordinary people, extraordinary people, I'm glad there was you." Now, make that big band in heaven swing!

Pete was an extraordinary musician, a wonderful human being and a generous contributer of music to our jazz band library.

Erin & my thoughts and prayers are with you at this time of loss....just as yours were a couple of years ago when Erin was sick. You were so very thoughtful and kind in sending a written note along with our CD..

I know that Pete would not want unhappiness over his moving to a "greater bandstand". He would want the same happiness and warm thoughts he showed in every solo.

Bless you and your loved ones. Pete will be missed.

I was saddened by the death of Pete but I took great comfort in knowing that he and Conti were together again. As a jazz trumpeter myself one of the highlights of my life was sitting about 4 feet in front of the two of them at a supper club in Saratoga Ca (I think thats where we were??) in the early 80's. Pete, Conti and a rythym section. Sweet. After moving from CA to Oklahoma I got another great gift. I was playing with the Tulsa University jazz band when Conti came in as a guest soloist. The director knew how much of a fan I was so he let me pick Conti up, drive him wherever he needed to go and if that wasnt enough, he set it up so that Conti and I played a tune together on the concert. Was UNBELIEVABLE!! I will NEVER forget these great people and musicians. I LOVE the Candoli brothers. May you both rest in peace.
