03.09.13Interview with Joe DiMino and Neon Jazz

11.09.12STEPPIN BACK reviewed at home in the San Jose Mercury

"San Jose-based trumpeter/composer Joel Behrman steps onto center stage with an allstar collection of Bay Area musicians. He offers striking originals, as well as tunes associated with Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong and Joe Henderson. Behrman's playing is soulful, swinging and surging with genuine emotion. Known for his work with such artists as Sheila E. and Pete Escovedo, Behrman deserves a following of his own."

-Paul Freeman
