Joe Locke is widely considered to be one of the major voices of his instrument, long known to be a soloist capable of stunning physical power and broad emotional range. He had already played with Dizzy Gillespie, Pepper Adams and Mongo Santamaria before he was out of high school. His more than 30 CDs as a soloist have solidly established him as the exhilarating composer, band leader and conceptualist that he is considered today. This is in no small part due to his recent projects, the award winning Joe Locke / Geoffrey Keezer Group with Terreon Gully and Mike Pope — "A reminder of the undiluted joys of music making" (Allaboutjazz.com); Storms/Nocturnes, his trio with Geoffrey Keezer and Tim Garland —"a chamber jazz form that truly sizzles with virtuosity and creativity" (Chick Corea); and his Force of Four quartet in which he skilfully combines his young cohorts' compelling talent with his own musical philosophy.
Locke consistently ranks at the top of all critics and readers polls and was presented with three Jazz Journalists Association's Mallet Player of the Year awards.
