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.

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.

“A player with a pristine tone and delightful ideas no matter what musical setting he selects.” All About Jazz
“There seems little doubt that Locke, with his ability to play cool and funky, heady and relaxed, is set to
become the pre-eminent vibraphonist in jazz.” The Times, London, UK
