Finding Aid

Joe Negri Collection

This collection is an inventory of Joe Negri’s records and music. Joe Negri is one of the most recognized names in Pittsburgh music circles and perhaps one of the best jazz guitarists in the country. He's known to millions for his appearances as "Handyman Negri" on the PBS show "Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood.” He played this role for 30 years. As a composer, Negri has written music for many documentary film scores. He wrote his first guitar method book in 2001, entitled "A Common Sense Approach to Guitar Improvisation." The book is an introduction to improvisation and is published by Mel Bay Publications
