Saro Tribastone and Jerry Garvin

Saro Tribastone (born 27 November 1966 in Ragusa) is an Italian composer, guitarist and performer of Mediterranean instrumental music who expresses his love for his homeland in Sicily though his composition and performances of acoustic music. He is adept at playing a number of different string instruments like Italian guitar, Flamenco guitar, the Greek Tzouras, Chitarra battente, mandolin and swing guitar, to create his unique sound.

His compositions express sounds of music made of popular Sicilian, Spanish flamenco and Latin rhythms and also echoes ethnic Greek, Arabian and Indian sounds. His style resembles the nuevo flamenco and world music. His passion for music began at the age of 6, when he was given his first acoustic guitar. Since then, he has been continuously perfecting his technique of Flamenco from various lands. At the age of 8, he started making his first short instrumental compositions. In his musical career, he has also composed soundtracks for several documentaries and television. Some of his songs have been used as accompanying music for programs broadcast on satellite TV in the USA over the years. Some choice tracks have been placed in satellite TV programs for the BBC, RAI, Discovery Channel, MTV and The Oprah Winfrey Show. His music also has been featured on The Landscape Channel.

In 2006, his first EP titled Fanusa was released, which contains the songs "Fanusa", a flamenco-derived South American track, "Serenade", inspired from Celtic music, and "Danza de la Luna Nueva", which mixes tango, flamenco and Greek music. Two of his songs, "Eve" and "Bongo Beach", produced together with the English duo Coyote were selected for the Laissez Faire Lounge 2 compilation, produced by ZYX Music as well as many other compilation albums. His latest album is Viento De Siroco, which is full of Mediterranean melodies. Many of his songs are named after places in Italy as a tribute to his homeland. His song "Libertad" features the Middle Eastern drum darabukka accompanying the guitar.

To date Saro has two albums and a single to his credit: The single Salinas (2012), the full length instrumental world collection titled Viento De Siroco (2009) and the EP Fanusa (2006).

In addition, he often performs live together in groups with Sicilian folk musicians. Associated acts include Cordasicula, a Sicilian duo since 2012, which offers original music inspired by the traditional sounds of the Mediterranean, especially in Sicily and southern Italy, wherein vocals and frame drums by Marilena Fede, are intertwined with the melodies played by Saro Tribastone on tzouras, mandolin and swing guitar. Tribastone also performs with the folk music band Faciti Rota from southern Italy. Saro also joined a group called Robasicula in 2007 and has been playing traditional and original popular music from Sicily with them, and currently performs live frequently. He also has art directed some folk music festivals and concerts in Sicily, like Ibla Folk, Abballati Abballati and Il Cuore In Una Barca Di Carta (The Heart In A Paper Boat).

Early life and professional baseball

Theodore Jared Garvin was born on October 21, 1955 in Oakland, California. His family later moved to Merced, California where he played baseball for Merced High School. He was initially drafted by the Baltimore Orioles of the American League (AL) in the 17th round of the 1973 Major League Baseball Draft that was held on June 5, but he did not sign a contract with the team. He re-entered the draft in time for the January secondary draft held on January 9, when he was drafted by the Minnesota Twins, also of the AL. He signed with the Twins franchise and was assigned to the class-A Wisconsin Rapids Twins of the Midwest League. Major league career

Garvin began his pitching career with four wins by the end of April, the first rookie to do so in baseball history. He was battling influenza when he was defeated by the Yankees on June 30, his fourth consecutive loss. He finished the season with a record of 10-18, and became known for his ability to pick off runners at first. In fact, Garvin established an unofficial Major League record of 26 pickoffs in the 1977 season, although this was not recognized in the record books; official statistics had never distinguished between pickoffs and runners caught stealing by any other method.

His 34 games started stands as the Blue Jays' rookie record, though tied by Gustavo ChacĂ­n in 2006. He surrendered 33 home runs during the season, the most allowed by a Blue Jays pitcher until Woody Williams allowed 36 in 1998.

Garvin fell to 4-12 in 1978, and by 1979 was primarily a reliever. In September 1979, Garvin spent some time on the disabled list, re-activated on September 1. Garvin re-signed with the Blue Jays on January 20, 1981, after appearing in a club record 61 games in 1980.

On August 20, 1982, the Blue Jays re-activated outfielder Wayne Nordhagen from the disabled list. To clear a spot for him, they optioned Garvin to the franchises' class-AAA team, the Syracuse Chiefs of the International League. At the time of the demotion, Garvin was the franchise's all-time leader in pitching appearances with 194. He was recalled to the majors for two more games in late September.

On January 18, 1983, Garvin was sold by the Blue Jays to the St. Louis Cardinals of the National League for an undisclosed amount, and was assigned to their class-AAA team, the Louisville Redbirds of the American Association. However, he was cut from the roster during spring training, and ended his professional career without ever playing for the Redbirds.

After his playing days, he has become involved in the real estate business.
