Lino Patruno's newest group to commerate Joe Venuti, first great violinist in the history of jazz, formed in 2003, on what would have been his hundredth birthday.

Lino Patruno met Joe Venuti in the 1970's and with him recorded 2 LP's. They also traveled and played together in many concerts and in several Jazz Festivals in Italy (Pescara, Verona, Genoa, Milan).

Joe Venuti, di Sicilian origins, back in the 1920's played with Eddie Lang who's real name was Salvatore Massaro. Massaro's parents came from the the south central Italian regione called molise. They formed a famous duo which was very popular in those years.

The Venuti-Lang duo were invited to guest with New York's most famous orchestras, such as Roger Wolfe-Kahn, Jean Goldkette and that of Paul Whiteman, who also featered such soloists as Bix Beiderbecke, FrankTrumbauer, Tommy & Jimmy Dorsey, and Bing Crosby.

After Eddie Lang's premature death in 1933 at the age of 31, Venuti collaborated with many other great guitarists, but was never able to find an equal. The great Eddie Lang was the first to invent jazz chord voicings and progressions on an instrument which had been used up untill then in a very rudimental way primarily by bluesmen.

Lino Patruno in the past has also recorded and performed with other musicians from the Chicago school such as cornettist Jimmy McPartland and tenor saxofonist Bud Freeman whom along with Eddie Condon in 1927 recorded the fist 78's of the Chicago school. Patruno also has collaborated with Wild Bill Davison, Billy Butterfield, Bob Wilber, Ralph Sutton e Jack Lesberg.
