Musician

Joe Morello

Born:

Joe was born on July 17, 1928, in Springfield, Mass. Having impaired vision since birth, he devoted himself to indoor activities. At the age of six, his family’s encouragement led him to study violin. Three years later, he was featured with the Boston Symphony Orchestra as soloist in the Mendelsohn Violin Concerto. At the age of twelve, he made a second solo appearance with the orchestra. But upon meeting and hearing his idol, the great Jascha Heifetz, Joe felt he could never achieve “that sound”. So, at the age of fifteen, Joe changed the course of his musical endeavors and began to study drums. Joe’s first drum teacher, Joe Sefcik, was a pit drummer for all the shows in the Springfield area

From George Coleman to Meeco: Ten Overlooked Classics

Read "From George Coleman to Meeco: Ten Overlooked Classics" reviewed by Chris May

Dave Brubeck Trio: Live From Vienna 1967

Read "Live From Vienna 1967" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic


The lure of a lively good party has long made Hamburg, Germany, a global destination spot. Young and old, male and female, and all in between have, at one time or another, succumbed to the city's salacious history, its tantalizing port of entry, its raucous streets, denizens, and rathskellers. So, can we really judge or speculate ...

New Spins On Old Masters

Read "New Spins On Old Masters" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

Come spesso accade per questo genere di operazioni, il supplemento di materiale che esce fuori dallo scavo coincide con versioni alternative dei medesimi brani della collezione definitiva (outtakes), ma ...

Most kids have heroes. Whether they be athletes, astronauts, artists, astrophysicists, (and that's just the “A's") or any of the many asundered possibilities. Gergo Borlai needn't go passed the “D's" to find his calling. Drumming came early, incredibly early, and he has never looked back. Determination and commitment can be a powerful force.
