Joe Caro & The Met Band Record Release Event
with Special Guest Chris Bergson
Thursday, November 21, 2013 at DROM NYC
9pm – 1am
Joe Caro is well known for his work in the New York underground scene fronting an all-star band which included Trumpeter Chris Botti, Saxman Lenny Pickett, and Late show Drummer Anton Fig performing every Tuesday night at the NYC club, The Metropolitan Café.
What started out as a 2 week gig, continued for 8 years and became the home base for many New York City session musicians at a time when New York music clubs were far and few. Following a few reunion performances in NYC, Joe decided to record a live album via Innsbruck Records at DROM Jazz Club.
The all-star lineup will be sure to catch the eye and ear of industry veterans. ”Joe Caro & The Met Band Live in New York City” will be officially released via global distribution on November 26, 2013. CDs will be available at the record release event.
The new album entitled “Joe Caro & The Met Band – Live in New York City” features industry veterans Randy Brecker, Clifford Carter, Anton Fig, Conrad Korsch, Lou Marini and Lew Soloff.
Chris Bergson (special guest – opening act)
With MOJO Magazine’s #1 Blues Album of 2008, ‘Fall Changes’ and #2 Blues Album of 2011, ‘Imitate the Sun’ – New York guitarist/singer Chris Bergson has established himself as “one of the most inventive songwriters in modern blues music” (Richard Skelly, All Music Guide), creating his own blend of blues, roots and soul.

“A powerful spirit with flavours of Ray Charles and Tom Waits… These guys could strip down the engine of a soulbluesmobile and put it back together blindfold.” MOJO
“Bergson’s stirring voice and glorious guitar command immediate attention.” Blues Revue
“Chris Bergson plays the kind of guitar you can build a house on – it’s B.B. meets Steve Cropper meets John Scofield.” ROLL Magazine
