In February 2017, Joe appeared with the Scottish National Jazz Orchestra and vocalist Kenny Washington for a three-concert series in Scotland, presenting the music of Henry Mancini and Johnny Mandel. Under the leadership of saxophonist Tommy Smith, the SNJO has climbed to the top ranks of Jazz orchestras in the world in its 21 year history. The combination of their unique sound with the tight unit of Locke and Washington created an unforgettable and intense concert experience for artists and audiences in Dundee, Edinburgh and Glasgow resulting in raving reviews and plans for the future…

Joe’s own composition “Verrazano Moon” is one of two originals featured at these concerts.
