“Bandleaders come and go, but Joel Dorham rolls on.” - Herb Caen 1993

Celebrating his 50th year in the Bay Area music scene, Joel Dorham is one of America’s most prolific and electrifying Latin Jazz timbale players and percussionists of our time, and a pivotal force in Latin Jazz. Joel organized his band in 1963, and has become the pre-eminent outspoken critic of the mass media for its suppression of Jazz. For his efforts he was nominated for a Pulitzer prize.
