Joe La Barbera
has performed all over the world with some of the finest names in jazz. From his first professional appearance at the Sands Hotel in Las Vegas with Frankie Randall
and the Buddy Rich
band in 1968, to his work with pianist Bill Evans’s
landmark trio, he continues to be in demand by jazz artists throughout the world. Bill Evans
summed it up best, “Joe is very dedicated to playing quality music and he’s willing to make the concessions of dues toward that end. He’s a top soloist and he does the right thing at the right time.”
Some of the greats he has worked with include Woody Herman, Chuck Mangione, Jim Hall, Phil Woods, Art Farmer, Gary Burton, Art Pepper, John Scofield, Don Sebesky, Bob Brookmeyer, Toots Thielmans
and Tony Bennett.
Joe is a regular visitor to Japan with his own groups, as well as a featured sideman. He is also an active clinician and guest artist at many major universities, and has been on the faculty at California Institute for the Arts since 1993. Joe is a co-founder of Jazz Compass, a record label that released his latest studio project, "Silver Streams."
