JOE CARO

Home Alone

2011-12-19

Joe Caro is a NYC-raised guitarist who has played for everyone from Bette Midler and Carly Simon to Randy Brecker, Dr. John and Bobby McFerrin. He was also in the house bands for David Letterman and "Saturday Night Live." Recently, Caro moved to Maui and cut this, his fist solo jazz instrumental release. He shows off his many influences on this CD; I was particularly interested in the ones that hinted at his new Hawaiian home and I found them in "Clear," "Going Home" and "Little Big Man." Caro also does a creative take on the Beatles standard "Strawberry Fields Forever." Interesting set from a guitar veteran ready to follow his own muse. Michael J. 12/11 J-Fusion (Guitar)
