Due to a busy touring schedule involving the whole team, this month's newsletter arrives a couple of weeks late. We apologise for the little delay and have quickly prepared this telegram style edition from the road to help you over the next few weeks until we are back in December with the usual bunch of news and updates.

The Latest

"Sticks and Strings" out now! Buy it here...
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. For this project, Joe created a 'sticks and strings theme', that goes much further than the musicians' tools it seems to represent.


The album is now available in Joe's Music Shop.*)

Looking back

'An Evening with Joe Locke' at London's RAM
It was a wonderful experience for Joe to work with such a great bunch of young talents from both the Jazz and Classic departments for four days of rehearsing, exchanging, listening and learning at the Royal Academy of Music in London earlier this month. All came together on November 2nd with an exciting and atmospheric concert at the RAM's beautiful Dukes Hall.

Joe would like to thank everyone who helped to make this event happen, especially Manuel Archiega, Elizabeth Barker, Daniel Bradley, Adam Clifford, Sarah Cresswell, Kit Downes, Freddie Gavita, Robbie Gibson, Calum Gourley, David Hamblett, Tommy Laurence, Ellie Pydall, Scott Lumsdaine, Hannah Melvin-Smith...

and - last but not least - very special thanks to Neil Percy.

The Joe Locke Quartet on tour in Germany
Particularly since Joe's celebrated success at the 2007
JazzBaltica Festival, German audiences have been embracing him as an exciting live performer. Therefore Joe was happy to come back for four concerts in Minden, Kiel, Berlin and Köln – this time bringing no other than Joe LaBarbera (drums), Jonathan Kreisberg (guitar) and Jay Anderson (bass) - to promote their new recording "Sticks and Strings".

A big thank-you goes to Rainer Haarmann, Artistic Director of JazzBaltica, for his initiative, drive and warm support in preparation of this German leg of the Quartet's European tour, and for welcoming the band at his beautiful home near Kiel. Joe also wishes to thank everyone at Jazz Club Minden,  A-Trane Jazz Club in Berlin, Altes Pfandhaus in Köln and Rainer Placke.

The Joe Locke Quartet are now touring Italy for another week until November 24, 2007.

And just in case we haven't pointed it out enough yet, the album "Sticks and Strings", released on the
JazzEyes label, is now available in Joe's Music Shop.
