For many years in New York, Houston, and now the Triangle of NC, Joe has been hired to record sax solos, arrange/lead horns, and rehearse and develop the overall sound for bands, DJ/producers, and singer-songwriters.  He is comfortable and experienced in larger commercial studios as well as bedroom budget setups, and is also able to overdub sax from his own home studio setup.  

He recorded on the breakout hit "Ana" for Vieux Farka Toure, wrote and arranged horn parts for the Indian viral video sensation Maati Baani, and wrote/developed full records with Karikatura, La Pachamambo, The Times, The Soul Vibrance, and Izzy and the Catastrophics.  He also wrote written and arranged horns for numerous special singles and EP projects that wanted a horn section boost, such as with Houston-based Plane to Lisbon, Nico, and NYC-based Zozo Afrobeat, Justina Soto, and El Grupo Descarrilao.
