Joseph Gioscia is another of those presumably American one-off composers of whom virtually nothing is known but for their only published single work, here Policy Sam
(1899) written also as a song in 1900 with words by Maurice J. Steinberg
. Internet searches have turned up tantalising snippets in The Albany Evening Journal
where he is referred to as an orchestra leader and violinist in 1903 and 1914 issues respectively.
