Howard posted the original article as well as an English translation on Facebook!

Translation:
A DREAM COME TRUE
Pat Martino (a living legend among jazz guitarists) and Robert Benedetto (one of the world’s best jazz guitar maker) together have a jazz guitar realized, which sets new standards.

What more could you want than that one of the best jazz guitarists and one of the best luthiers come together in the world
and a guitar a reality leave, which of the boundaries been seen before breaks.    FELIX HARTL (translation)

Danke Schoen, Felix!

CARVING MOUNT RUSHMORE

Douglas J. Gladstone's book on Mt. Rushmore Carver Luigi Del BiancoWe are honored Bob Benedetto was chosen to write the Foreword for a book on Carving of another sort – Mount Rushmore!

Carving a Niche for Himself: The Untold Story of Luigi Del Bianco and Mount Rushmore, author Douglas J. Gladstone’s valentine to the obscure Italian American immigrant who served as chief carver of the Mount Rushmore National Memorial, will be published by Bordighera Press May 2014.

Featuring a foreword by Italian American businessman Robert Benedetto, the chairman of Benedetto Guitars in Savannah, Premier Archtop Luthier Robert Benedetto 2013Georgia, Carving a Niche for Himself examines the selfless efforts of five time Parent’s Choice award winner Lou Del Bianco, a children’s performer and storyteller from Port Chester, New York, to honor his late grandfather.

Douglas Gladstone's Luigi Del Biano book graphic 3-11-14 for Benedetto Guitars News3Though Rushmore sculptor and designer Gutzon Borglum’s own correspondence in the Library of Congress clearly indicates that Luigi Del Bianco was the glue that held the project together, Del Bianco for some inexplicable reason has never received the credit in scholarly publications or documentaries on the creation of the memorial that many individuals believe he is deserving of.

Headquartered at 25 West 43rd Street in New York City, Bordighera Press is recognized as the foremost publisher of Italian-American literature and poetry in North America. Bordighera Press’ books are carried by Small Press Distribution.

DOUGLAS J. GLADSTONE is a freelance writer and author living in upstate New York. By day an assistant public relations specialist with the New York State Retirement System, his numerous magazine and newspaper articles have been published in The Chicago Sun Times, the Burlington Free Press, History Magazine and Vermont Magazine, among others. Carving a Niche for Himself is his second book.

From the Acknowledgements: I also want to extend my gratitude to Bob Benedetto, the chairman of Benedetto Guitars, for writing the foreword. When I offered him the opportunity to do so, I did not know at the time that both he and his father had been stationed at the same air force base in Rapid City, South Dakota — Ellsworth Air Force Base — that figures so prominently in the discussion of bigotry and prejudice in Chapter 6. The point is, Bob’s powerful prose makes this book special, and for that I am appreciative.

For more information, contact either Douglas Gladstone at 518-817-8253 or Tamburri at 212-642-2005.
