We’re sure there are other albums out there with a track or more of Robin Rapuzzi. Please let us know about them so they can be added to this list.

Contact: Joe.syncopatedtimes@gmail.com

We will be creating discographies for other traditional jazz artists starting with those active in New Orleans.  If you want to make a list for an individual artist, for example, Ewan Bleach, or Aurora Nealand, and send it our way it will make the project go much faster. We have a wish list of over 50 musicians who deserve a discography, it will only grow.
