“‘Naughty Rita’ was one of just four tracks recorded by a mysterious little ensemble that likely featured one G. Crapanzano, the author of most of I Flautisti’s tunes. Featuring flute, piccolo, banjo, and guitar, the group recorded their entire output on June 1, 1928 at Liederkranz Hall on 58th Street.” —JW

I Flautisti • Rita impertinente • 1928

Notes, label photo, and tune from Excavated Shellac, a terrific blog that features music at 78 rpm from all over the world. Give ’em a listen.
