Some reviews about Joe:
“Caustically funny…” Stephen Holden, The New York Times
“Superfine pianist..” The Village Voice
“If anyone can pull that off, … it’s Kerr — bluesy jazz pianist, lyricist, composer, teacher, bon vivant extraordinaire” Jan Herman, MSNBC.com
“Texas great Joe Kerr…” Craig Havighurst, Nashville Tennessean
*A founding member of the Western Caravan, Joe now lives in the sticks outside of Philly, but he still tries to get into NYC and play with the boys whenever possible.
