In 1965 I bought my first Cordovox accordion setup from Manny,who took good care of me from start to finish,including acting as go- between in having Lou Lazaro at Bell

Accordion install a set of custom pickups in the new instrument.
Manny supervised the entire transaction . It was apparent that
he wanted me to be happy with my new plaything. He knew very well that this purchase represented just about every cent I had.
 
At the time there were no more than half a dozen Cordovox accordionists listed in the 802 handbook, and having this toy resulted in an incredible increase in club date/ catered affair bookings throughout the tri- state area.
 
Most of the work was solo until I hooked up with a tenor saxist with a Selmer Varitone setup. Add a drummer, and we sounded like ten guys. Add a guitar and we became a do-all entertaining orchestra.
 
That electronic accordion saw me through thirty-five years of gigs, provided me with a lucrative side hustle while I was building a career with the City University, and was the mainstay of music programs at several children's camps I directed.
 
Being an entertaining accordionist is a young man's game, and I no longer qualify. The revolutionary CMI Cordovox that Manny passed to me across that 48th Street counter is now on it's way to a collector and musician, along with several other editions with the same Cordovox name.
 
And I'm still kicking around central Arizona, playing honky-tonk saloon piano, and entertaining folks who are, like me, immersed in serious adulthood.

There's a story behind the Eigo name that has to do with immigration.

When my great grandfather came here from Ireland there were many Igoe's coming over so to distinguish himself in the new world he took the e and moved it.
At least that's what they told us.
So if I see Eigo it's likely we're related.
If I see Igoe like Sonny Igoe who played for Woody Herman or his son Tommy also a drummer we're not related.
I also have a famous cousin Jim Eigo from Act Up:
If you think that's fascinating it's only half as fascinating as the Italian side of my family and my Italian grandparents Angelina and Giuseppe who came through Ellis Island from Bari Italy.
They didn't speak English.
They had 6 kids Joseph, Anthony, Angie, Marie (my mom), Cosimo and Dominick.
Family name is Elluzzi
Because of their language problems everyone in my family has a different last name Elluzzi got turned around to Ilutzi, Slutzi a real mess.
For real!
Best,
Jim
