While playing in a New York club, YOKO ONO and the producers at the HIT FACTORY invited him to contribute on the completion of JOHN LENNON'S unfinished works.

Joe has recorded with TITO PUENTE, the great Mambo King and has performed with many jazz & pop artists including John Lewis of the MODERN JAZZ QUARTET and FREDDIE HUBBARD to name a few.

Soca jazz is a unique genre of island inspired music with reggaeton feels, funky rhythms, memorable melodies and good time vocals.
