Jazz Ruler Type: Ballads, Blues
O’s Notes: Joe is a crooner and he separates himself from the pack with this release. To start, it is a swinging session that is easy to engage in. The crucial ingredients are good material, a strong band and good singing. The sixteen songs are fresh arrangements of well-known classics. The band includes excellent performances from the Gary Moran (p) trio with guitarist Ed DeLucia and bassist Scott Black. Joe really sings vs. speaking the words and this makes the songs flow regardless of the pace. We loved the entire program, especially “Frim Fram Sauce” and “‘Tis Autumn”.
