Joe Diorio Trio

Technical virtuosity and imaginative improvisation made Joe Diorio (born: Joseph Louis Diorio) one of the busiest jazz session guitarists of the '60s and '70s. Reviewing a mid-'60s performance, influential jazz critic Leonard Feather wrote that Diorio was "one of the most mature and uncompromising (new) plectrists to work the room since Joe Pass."

Waterbury, Connecticut-born Diorio spent much of the early '60s in Chicago, playing with such stellar jazz musicians as saxophonist Sonny Stitt and trombone player Bennie Green. He made his recording debut on tenor saxophonist Eddie Harris' 1961 album, Exodus to Jazz.

Together with trumpet and saxophone player Ira Sullivan, Diorio relocated to Miami, Florida, where he quickly found a place in the city's thriving jazz scene. In addition to playing with top-notch musicians including Stan Getz, Freddie Hubbard, and Stanley Turrentine, he led his own trio, featuring Bob Magnusson and Jim Plank.

Since releasing his debut solo album, Solo Guitar, in 1975, Diorio has gone on to record more than a dozen impressive platters, including tribute albums to Wes Montgomery and Antonio Carlos Jobim.

Starting with a jazz improvisation class that he taught at the University of Miami, Diorio increasingly turned his focus to teaching. Since relocating to Los Angeles in the late '70s, he has taught in the studio/jazz guitar department of the University of Southern California and the GIT (Guitar Institute of Technology).

He has written several instructional books including Fusion and Intervallic Designs. ~ Craig Harris, Rovi

Joe Diorio is a great player, he should of been famous. His books are the best! Intervallic Designs changed my life.

I took a few lessons with Joe when he was still in southern california. He taught quite a few guitarists who went on to become well known artists, and I'm sure I was one of his much less gifted students. But he was so kind and generous, that that became a lesson in itself. It was literally amazing to sit next to him while he was showing me something, and hear the depth and beauty in his playing. He truly is one of the greats, a true artist.
I agree with tmcarter on this one. Always love discovering a 'new' musician that was right under my nose the whole time!
I studied with Joe at GIT back in 1977. What an unbelievable player he is! He would constantly amaze all of us students with his technique, both single notes and chord melody. Plus he was funny! I have seen him play live several times and he is still great. If you like this, also check out Ron Escheté, another great instructor from GIT.
