Joe Hunt

Joe Hunt is a jazz drummer, educator, author, and historian.

In the early 1960s, Joe Hunt performed and recorded alongside the late NEC Distinguished Artist-in-Residence Emeritus George Russell, with releases on Decca and Riverside. Hunt joined The Stan Getz Quartet in 1964, recording several releases on Verve, then was a member of the Bill Evans Trio from 1966-1967. The remainder of the 1960s found Hunt performing or recording with several other jazz luminaries including Chet Baker, Eric Dolphy, Dizzy Gillespie, Dexter Gordon, Charles Mingus, Bob Brookmeyer, and the late Herb Pomeroy.

In the 1970s and 1980s, Hunt was a member of The National Jazz Ensemble, led jazz groups with John Scofield, Mike Stern, and Santi Debriano, and toured with quartets of Red Rodney and Hal McKusick.
