Album Notes
I compose, arrange, play guitars, bass, keyboards, rap, sing.. I just do my thing.. I played in the well known SF bay area fusion band CLOUDS in the 70s.. and before the days of all this bling I spent 2 years in the late 70s with THE DAVID LA FLAMME BAND touring the states.. sex drugs rock and roll.. had it all.. EVERYTHING.. but I wouldn't trade for what I got now.. my own way.. my own music.. my own thing..

an award winning composer of chamber music with university honors and published and recorded compositions, I am a jazz musician.. I've played with, among others, woody shaw, jon hendricks, julian priester and mike nock.. I'm no longer a classic cover tune or mainstream jazz artist, rather a jazz musician who believes in world music as trane did.. seeking to blend many genres into a fresh and innovative style of jazz..

after many years on the axe I've finally done 2 CDs demonstrating my style.. RAPSTER GUITARS IT.. 15 original songs and collabs featuring syntopia, redeyeC, margot du bois, TLT50, big daddy cee and brian mattson.. and RAPSTER GUITARS IT 2.. with 12 original songs and collabs featuring margot, syntopia and TLT50..

order here direct on CD BABY !!!

T.Jake Lee

Yeah buddy!
This the first cd from "Rapster' is outstanding in its concept and execution!He does blend a lot of influences into his music,and that makes it very interesting.I have always enjoyed his music,and now,that he somehow has remembered his great guitar skills,I dig it even more!If you want a modern mix of just about everything thats good,includeing Jazz guitar...get THIS ONE!


I remember when Joe played at Susie's Cotati Cuisine. He was awesome then, too. And I remember the Boyes Hot Springs, peppermint schnapps and Lida and Ed (Dubrow?). Hope Joe is doing as well now as he was then!

margot du bois

Love them all...:-)

By Candlelight
Beeing a professional songwriter myself focussing on ballads I urgently want to draw your attention to this great piece of music: »By candle light« is such a tasty, fine, superb and excellent ballad! Decent, beautiful atmosphere, beautiful guitar playing, unique oustanding vocal harmonies, so close, climbing in intensity, then even airy, background whispering and a famose ending! An absolutely first class high-level ballad, coming from heart and at the same time satisfying even the most sophisticated ears and musical minds.

The Man Knocks Me Out
I was very impressed with Joes guitar work. I thought he was a singer and a very good original singer, at that. I had no idea he played guitar. Well, one day he layed down some guitar riffs and heard some Alan Holdsworth riffs in there.....I said...WTF?!?!??!! This guy is GREAT!!!! Well, he turned my head around and I started listening to his guitar, as well as his vox. When the CD came out......I just had to have it and I\'m glad I got it. It\'s been some SUPER listening, while I\'ve been driving...GREAT ON THE ROAD!! GO JOE!!
