Known and available recordings of The Cangelosi Cards

April 12, 2019

The Cangelosi Cards were a jazz band active from 2006 – 2011 based in New York City. They're great, but I haven't been able to find a copy of their albums. If, like me, you'd like to hear their music, this page lists all their recordings I could find on the public internet, excluding content on YouTube. If any links are broken, or if I've missed something, let me know!

Album: Clinton Street Recordings, I (2009)
