Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers is one of the most iconic bands in the history of jazz and served as a training ground for some of the greatest artists of our time.
“Modern Art” is a Joe Graziosi led project that takes you back to NYC in the 60’s, featuring compositions and arrangements by such jazz legends as Freddie Hubbard, Wayne Shorter, Lee Morgan, Cedar Walton, Bobby Timmons, Thelonious Monk and more.


Originally from Youngstown, Ohio, Joe has moved around A LOT since leaving his hometown. He has spent time in Columbus, Ohio, then went off to see 6 of the 7 continents, and lived for a significant time in a small village in England. Joe now resides in New York City, performing every Tuesday night at Minton’s Playhouse in Harlem, where his quartet hosts the “Minton’s Legacy Jam Session.” You can catch Joe performing with his acoustic group, his organ driven “Quartet Smoke”, cabaret shows, and with one of the best party bands NYC has to offer, “Atomic Funk Project”. Graziosi’s future is surely bright and involves plans to record and perform all over the world.

Joe has performed with a very diverse list of artists including: Peter Erskine, The Cab Calloway Orchestra, Robin Eubanks, Bill Holman, Norbert Leo Butz, Bobby Floyd, Rumer Willis, Howard Johnson, Tiffany, The Drifters, Ernie Krivda, Matt Wilson, Anthony Wonsey, Kenyatta Beasley, Dwight Adams, and many more.
