New Joe Locke mallet from Pro-Mark
Pro-Mark, working with Joe, have just developed a second Joe Locke signature mallet. The PJL2 is harder than the original model, and is designed to cut through in acoustic situations. The new mallet will be available - alongside the existing PJL - from Pro-Mark later this year.

Look out for Joe's ads in Downbeat Magazine starting in November.

Visit Joe's "Feature Artist" page at Pro-Mark.

New Music Award nomination
Joe has just been listed as nominee for this years' New Music Award in the "College" category. The NMA are one of the few independent award programs, born from an original idea by legendary radio programmer Bill Gavin, allowing the audience to vote for their favourite musicians online.

Recording News

"Sticks and Strings"
For his latest release as a band leader, Joe gathered the talents of guitarist Jonathan Kreisberg, bassist Jay Anderson and drummer Joe LaBarbera to record these seven originals and two standards, which will be available from early November. For this project, Joe created a 'sticks and strings theme', that goes much further than the musicians' tools it seems to represent.
