Joe Abba: Press

"Abbatantuono attacks with a hard bop vigor dusted with successive decades' rhythmic dalliances, including funk, jazz-rock and fusion. The result is a chili-hot stew of galvanizing intensity."

"[Joe] produces a rich assortment of percussive sounds that fill in the lulls at precisely the right places and move the piece along without ever being brash."

"Abba's Walking The Path is an impressive tune, filled with melodic and rhythmic ideas that give the number a more spiritual vibe."

"[Joe] Abba shows just what a tasteful rhythmist he is on [his arrangement of] Duke Ellington’s Amad.”
