About Joey: A native of New Rochelle, New York, Calderazzo was inspired to take up piano by a musical next-door neighbor and began his classical studies at age six. His interest in jazz greats, such as McCoy Tyner and John Coletrane, led him to visit friends at Berklee College of Music, growing close with then-students Branford Marsalis, Wallace Roney, Donald Harrison, and Jeff “Tain” Watts. Calderazzo’s latest album, Going Home, has been called “immensely satisfying” and “an elegant and forceful new album.” Read more on his website.
