Syracuse native Joe Magnarelli moved to New York City in 1986 and soon became a regular participant on the Manhattan-and-beyond jazz scene. From 1987, he toured and recorded with Lionel Hampton and Brother Jack McDuff.
In 1990, Joe was a semifinalist at the Thelonious Monk International Trumpet Competition in Washington, D.C. That decade also found him performing and recording with the Toshiko Akiyoshi Jazz Orchestra, Harry Connick, Jr., the Hard Bop Quintet, the Glenn Miller Orchestra, and Grant Stewart. He also performed with Jon Hendricks, the Carnegie Hall Jazz Orchestra, Ben Wolfe, and many others. Since 1996, Joe has performed as a frequent substitute member of the Vanguard Orchestra. In[masked], Mags performed with the great Latin jazz conguero Ray Barretto?s New Sextet. Joe recorded on Ray?s ?Time Was, Time Is? (O+ Music), which was nominated for a Grammy.
Other artists and ensembles Joe has performed with include the Louis Hayes Quintet, the Marty Sheller Nonet, the Maria Schneider Jazz Orchestra, Dado Maroni, Rosemary Clooney, the Tom Harrell Big Band, Spike Wilner?s Planet Jazz, Harry Whitaker, Junior Mance, John Pizzarelli, Mark Sherman, Jane Monheit, and Don Sebesky.
Joe Magnarelli exemplifies what can happen when you follow through on commitment. Though he started playing trumpet at age 6, adding piano at 7, he didn't make music his life's focus until he was 21. Now, 20 years later, he's one of the most in-demand jazzmen in New York City, where he's lived since 1986... " Downbeat Magazine
