Artist Biographies:

"Joe LaBarbera (born February 22, 1948) is an American jazz drummer and composer. He is best known for his recordings and live performances with the trio of pianist Bill Evans in the final years of Evans's career. Prior to joining Evans he worked in the quartet of Chuck Mangione and Joe Farrell.

He was born in Mt. Morris, New York, younger brother to saxophonist Pat LaBarbera, and trumpeter and arranger/composer John LaBarbera. He was formally educated at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts.

After Berklee he spent two years with the US Army band at Fort Dix, New Jersey. He began his professional career playing with Woody Herman and the Thundering Herd, followed by the Chuck Mangione Quartet.

He then moved to New York and spent two years freelancing with a number of notable musicians, including Jim Hall, Phil Woods, Art Farmer, Gary Burton, Art Pepper, John Scofield, Bob Brookmeyer and Toots Thielmans."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"My grandpa served as a navigator in the US Air Corps during WWII in the South Pacific. At 26 years old, he was the oldest crew member aboard his B24 bomber, Asterperious Special.

The crew went out on a number of routine missions that I can only imagine as terrifying. Many times they flew blind in the clouds to avoid being spotted. Among the obvious responsibilities as a navigator - getting from point A to point B and back - Grandpa had to make sure that they didn't collide with obstacles, including mountains.

Apparently, their topographical maps contained inaccuracies and couldn't be taken as gospel. On one of their missions, Grandpa looked at the map, felt that something wasn't right and told the pilot to gain altitude immediately. The pilot agreed and within seconds after ascending, they peered down and saw the peaks of trees protruding from the clouds just yards beneath them. They had run up against a mountain range that wasn't marked properly on their map.

Grandpa's last mission ended in a firefight with a handful of Japanese Zeros. Their nose gunner, and close friend of his, was seriously wounded. Grandpa pulled him out of the nose, helped treat his wounds as best he could, and then took over as gunner. Grandpa returned from the mission severely injured.

His crew went out on three more missions without him, and on their third bombing run they didn't return. My dad told me all that I know about what Grandpa did - like most of those in his generation who fought in WWII, he didn't want to talk much about it."-Gavin Templeton
