■■■  Recording Projects

Joe Locke featured on new Wayne Escoffery recording
Wayne Escoffery's new album "Veneration", which will be on general release from March 13, features Joe Locke alongside Lewis Nash (drums) and Hans Glawischnig (bass).

The eight tracks were recorded live at Smoke Jazz Club, NYC, on June 2nd and 3rd last year, marking Wayne's debut on the Savant label. With music by Booker Little, Jackie McLean, Dizzy, Ellington plus one original composition, he displays why he is one of the most creative saxophonists in jazz today.

Joe Locke is thrilled to be part of this exciting release.
