Torquato Y los 4!
I love them.
They found fame and fortune in Spain, but were definitely italian!
They started from Cremona in 1958, then continued their career in Spain, as there they were much appreciated.
As the band saw 4 members, Torquato was the name for the upright bass, the instrument itself!
Some years ago a CD was released officially with all their sides for Philips label from 1959 to 1963.

Wow, thank you, FrankDee! I know about a great book "1944-1963. i complessi musicali italiani"! I don't have it yet, though, but I believe there is a story about Torquato y Los 4 there. Good to see your interest in this great music! :)

Karel, I gave my contribution on this book - as per today, this is the first book of this kind (I mean, this is almost a complete history on famous, obscure and really obscure italian bands from the mid '40s to early '60s, and this include swing, rock'n'roll, twist etc...).
I say "almost" because there should be a lot to discover of that days, and I know that some artists didn't want to appear on this book.
Anyway, this book counts a few less than 900 pages divided in two volumes (sold together in a box), and there's a lot of pictures plus short stories about the bands, in both italian and english.
Be careful because this book has a limited quantity of 1000 pcs, and after this run, as far as I know, it will not be reprinted.
It was released officially in December 2010 by Maiotti Edizioni (Maiotti is also the editor of Jamboree, a magazine on 50s and 60s music born in the first half of the '90s).
And yes, there's a story about Torquato e i 4 (that's the original name of the band) with some great vintage pictures.
