Joe’s music draws on a broad, eclectic background of performance experience spanning 30 years. From small group jazz to swinging big bands, symphony orchestras to avante garde free jazz, Dixieland, funk and rock, Joe has played it all. His trumpet and flugel horns resonate with a wide range of styles. Attentive listeners will hear the cool, lean approach of Miles Davis, the bop lyricism of Clifford Brown, the hard bop/funk influence of Freddy Hubbard, and of course, the traditional Dixieland figures of Louie Armstrong. Joe makes extensive use of classics from the American Song Book and jazz standards for the raw material of his musical canvas. But he makes these classics his own with unique arrangements not heard elsewhere. His 2016 CD, WashAshore, is the most recent example of Joe’s creative approach. Complimentary refreshments.
