“I have worked with Joe on multiple projects and I am always impressed with his work. He has excellent skills, a great attitude and many years of experience. Recording a full orchestra, a solo instrumentalist, or just cleaning up noisy interview clips; Joe does a great job every time.”

“If you listen to my Ysaye CD, I hope you hear a great sound and some good violin playing. What you won’t hear are all the technical details that are part of recording, including mixing, microphone placement, and yes – a few miraculous edits. Making a great recording involves two distinct parts: great playing, and great recording. Joe has lived up to his end of things for me, and many others.”
