Joe LaBarbera and his quintet made amazing music Saturday evening at the Boston Court in Pasadena - mostly Joe's diverse and interesting compositions. Guaging by the audience response, I was not the only one who felt this way. One of my friends commented on the "synergy" of the group as they took individual spotlights and played seamlessly together - a tribute to LaBarbera's gracious style as the band's leader. All five players are modern musician masters! I strongly suggest catching their act the next time they play locally - which is not so often as their individual talents are sought after for gigs and tours all over the world.
Percussionist Joe La Barbera and his quintet perform an evening of swingin', expansive jazz. Joe is one of the most respected and enjoyed percussionists playing today.
Joe La Barbera has enjoyed a long and varied career in music, a career that has taken him all over the world with some of the finest names in jazz. He is regarded by his peers as a musical drummer and a supportive accompanist. Jazz great Bill Evans summed it up best when he said that “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.”
