2011-06-01 19:13:38   Joe is a fantastic musician. My wife took me to Shadowbrook for our fourth anniversary, and we arrived early. When he sat down we were lucky enough to be right beside him. Charming and friendly, he found out why we were there and played some gorgeous tunes. As a trained musician myself whose clarinet career was destroyed by tonsillectomy, i was moved by his attention to intonation, timbre, time and technicality. What a special time it was. I'd love to play with him sometime even only in a short backup role, on clarinet or rhythm guitar. A true musician. - Dan Fruzzetti —
