Arranging, Transcriptions

Joe has created hundreds of charts for bands and horn sections, both by transcribing off of original recordings, and for original creative projects.   As a performer himself, Joe knows the value of taking extra steps to make charts that are easy to sight-read.  He also is experienced in crafting arrangements that support vocalists and enhance overall productions.  His library includes charts designed for pop/top 40, salsa, neo-soul, soul, rock, salsa, cumbia, tejano, Afrobeat, and world fusion acts.   However he has most often been hired for his attention to detail in truly transcribing the quirks and voicings from original recordings.
