The hot new CD recorded by the band “SOCA JOE” was born from the vision of the masterful guitarist, Joe Bonacci, leader/founder of “SOCA JOE” and the Manhattan Swing Orchestras. He brings to this CD the musical richness and diversity that can only come from the cultivation of a wide variety of musical experiences. Those experiences include completing tracks with Yoko Ono on John Lennon's last album, live performances with the legendary “mambo king”, Tito Puente, John Lewis of the Modern Jazz Quartet, Freddie Hubbard and numerous renowned artists. Joe’s work can also be found in a variety of records, TV themes and commercials.
This time around “SOCA JOE” is made up of some of the most dynamic and esteemed session players and artists in New York City including David Mann, Gary Haase, Larry Loftin and Primadonna (Queen Of The Carnival) and Spyda. Half Moon Bay is infused with cool sophistication coupled with individualistic musical expression. The result is a uniquely fresh and musical journey that embraces a new and different dimension in contemporary music.
“Sit back, light your candles, take your shoes off, close your eyes, relax, and enjoy the cool sounds”
