Does “Josephy” mean “sort of Joseph but not quite” or something?

Anyway, this is actually Joseph Robinson, former principal oboist of New York Phil.


  1. “Josephy Robinson”=Joseph Robinson impersonator.


  2. Maybe it’s pronounced with the stress on the middle syllable like in Giuseppe Verdi.

  3. Heh … I like the impersonator idea! 😉
