New Joe Locke mallet from Pro-Mark
Pro-Mark, working with Joe, have just developed a second Joe Locke signature mallet. The new mallet is harder than the original PJL model, and is designed to cut through in acoustic situations. It will be available - alongside the existing PJL - at Pro-Mark from later this year.

Recording project with Hadley Caliman
Joe is excited to be going into Triad Studios in Seattle on September 19th and 20th to record a new project for tenor legend Hadley Caliman. "I was inspired by Hadley's work with Bobby Hutcherson and Freddie Hubbard, and I practically wore through the grooves on his 'Projecting' LP, I listened to it so many times", says Joe. "It's an honor to get the opportunity to record with him".

Playing trumpet and producing the session is Thomas Marriott. Drummer Joe LaBarbera and bassist Phil Sparks complete the band.

Look for the release of this project on the Origin label in 2008.
