Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Frank Rosolino (August 20, 1926 - November 26, 1978) was an American jazz trombonist. Born in Detroit, Michigan, Frank Rosolino studied the guitar with his father starting at age 9. He took up the trombone at age 14 while he was enrolled at Miller High School where he played with Milt Jackson in the school's stage band and small group. Having never graduated, Frank joined the 86th Division Army Band during World War II. Frank was married twice and had 4 children. With his first wife he had a daughter and with his second wife, Leslie Ann Rosolino, he had 3 children named Jason, Justin and Parris. Jason lives in California and Parris Rosolino lives in Seattle. Perhaps most influential of all was the street education Frank received upon having returned to Detroit after his stint in the Army where he sat in at the Mirror Ballroom or the Bluebird where other to-be-renowned musicians also congregated (Hank, Thad, and Elvin Jones, Tommy Flannigan, Kenny Burrell, Paul Chambers) and later at the 3 Deuces on 52nd Street in New York City with Charlie Parker.
