The featured guest tonight is Joe Midiri. Joe did not play a musical instrument until age 15. From that point, his clarinet became his singular focus, influenced by hearing Benny Goodman on the radio. Within weeks, Joe was playing Goodman inspired phrases and forming his first musical group with Joe Holt and brother Paul. 45 years later, Joe has earned a national reputation as a reed instrumentalist in the traditions of Benny Goodman and Artie Shaw.Joe was a fixture in the Atlantic City casinos for many years, and his performing group has been featured at dozens of jazz festivals throughout the country. Tonight, Joe Midiri joins Joe Holt, to revisit the past (A Couple of Joes) and perform in the moment.
