The relative rarity of vibraphonists in the history of jazz remains one of the musical genre's true mysteries. Despite the natural beauty of the instrument's sound and the historical importance and celebrated popularity of its most famous players – Lionel Hampton, Milt Jackson and Bobby Hutcherson – comparatively few artists have chosen to make the vibraphone their primary means of expression. Fortunately, Joe Baione has and on Oh Yeah!!! - his second outing as a leader and impressive successor to his distinguished debut The Superhero – he shows that the vibes and the mallets with which he plays them are in very good hands.
On Oh Yeah!!! Baione builds upon the success of The Superhero using the same stellar sextet instrumentation with one important addition to the lineup – that is the enlistment of veteran producer Todd Barkan as a member of the team. Barkan, who regularly worked with Hampton-Jackson-Hutcherson triumvirate of vibists (as well as many other of the music's most important artists) during his years as owner of the legendary Keystone Korner says, "In addition to being one of the hardest swinging members of his generation of vibers, Joe consistently reaches his listeners with the distinctiveness of his musical voice as both a truly creative virtuoso on his instrument and an increasingly compelling composer. In short , both his playing and his tunes speak more and more clearly and strongly to us."
Joe Baione can perform at weddings, live festivals, events, clinics, workshops using his trio, quartet or sextet depening on the venue/event and amount.
Baione's performance resume continues to grow. He has performed at the prestigious Jacksonville Jazz Festival, The Clearwater Jazz Holiday, The Lansing Jazz Festival, The Trinidad and Tobago Jazz Festival and Workshop, Air Jamaica Jazz and Blues Festival in Montego Bay, Temecula Valley Jazz Festival and has performed at such festivals as The Cape May Jazz Festival, The Rehoboth Beach Autumn Jazz Festival, and The Clifford Brown Jazz Festival. Performance venues include, The Jazz Bakery, Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola in NYC's Lincoln Center, The Kimmel Center and Zanzibar Blue in Philadelphia and Sydney's Blues and Jazz Restaurant, just to name a few. In the past two years Baione has opened for Michael Bolton, Monty Alexander, Joey DeFrancesco and in April Joe will open for the legendary Dave Brubeck.
Baione has won several awards including "Teacher of the Year" in 2003, "Emerging Jazz Artist" in 2005 by Philadelphia Weekly and "Rising Star of Tomorrow" by Jazz at Lincoln Center.
