Born: December 30, 1980 Primary Instrument: Trumpet
Joey is considered to be one of the pre-eminent trumpet talents of our time. His skill with classical playing is unprecedented as can be witnessed by hearing him play the Partita BMV 1006 by Bach (written for Violin). In addition to his classical prowess, Joey has a jazz sound like no other player in history. Combining his classical sensibility with his jazz playing has fostered a sound that will change the face of Jazz forever. Whether playing 16th notes at blinding speed or double Eb’s with ease and tonal perfection, Joey is at ease with his trumpet and embodies the definition of an “instrument acting as an extension of ones self.”...
