"Sticks and Strings" released on Jazz Eyes, 2007 is one of Joe's finest albums next to his album with Frank Kimbrough called "The Willow," his own albums "Mutual Admiration Society" and "Beauty Burning." This is such a beautiful album and all the musicians have done a fantastic job realizing Locke's musical vision. The musician's are:

Joe Locke - vibraphone
Jonathan Kreisberg - acoustic and electric guitars
Jay Anderson - bass
Joe La Babera - drums

The whole album is great from start to finish. If you're already familiar with Locke's work and own some of his albums then I'm sure you're going to pick it up sometime, but if you're not familiar with his work then this would be a good starting place. All the musicians are fantastic and provide great support to each other and service the compositions with great feeling and emotion.

This album will probably end up on several Best of 2007 lists. Check it out!

This album stands out for its honesty and perfect balance between melodic warmth and highly inventive improvisation. It's simple complexity of the highest quality.

Here's what John Kelman of All About Jazz had to say:

Joe Locke has always struck that rare balance between reverence for things past and a forward-thinking mindset. Live in Seattle (Origin, 2006) brought a firm, modernistic edge to a set of original material by the vibraphonist and keyboardist/co-leader Geoffrey Keezer. Rev-elation (Sharp Nine, 2005), teaming Locke with the Milt Jackson Tribute Band, was steeped in the tradition, although Locke never lost sight of his personal extension of that tradition.

Sticks and Strings, featuring up-and-coming guitarist Jonathan Kreisberg alongside veteran bassist Jay Anderson and drummer Joe La Barbera, straddles the line better than any of Locke's previous efforts, with contemporary treatments of two well-known standards augmenting a program of originals by Locke, Anderson and La Barbera. It proves that there needn't be a dividing line between the old and the new, and that the best players look simultaneously backwards and forwards.

The lengthy credentials of Locke, Anderson and La Barbera make their bi-directional viewpoints unsurprising, making Kreisberg the real wild card. Capable of swinging firmly on the ambling Cole Porter classic "All of You," and navigating changes with ease on a soft, Latin-esque take of Julie Styne's "I Fall in Love Too Easily," Kreisberg demonstrates, on the originals, that he's not left his progressive days of a decade ago completely behind him.

FLUID MUSICAL MELODIC INNOVATIVE AND CAPTIVATING .I have heard a lot of joe locke s fine works but this one seem to be his most expansive one in finesse .IMO his present band is the main reason for this superfine result.
