Joe Farrell

Joe Farrell was a journeyman sax man with an impressive resume when he signed on with the CTI label in 1970, and went on to record some of the best music for that label, gaining an international audience with his release of the progressive “Moon Gems,” in 1972.

Joseph Carl Firrantello was born in Chicago Heights, Illinois on Dec. 16, 1937. He was serious about music from an early age and was playing a proficient flute by age 11. Upon graduating from University of Illinois in 1959, he headed to New York and became a freelance musician, by this time well entrenched in the bop technique of the saxophone.
