Album Notes
The Joe Escobar Quartet is made up of seasoned San Francisco Bay Area musicians. Joe Escobar has become known locally for his smooth voice and excellent renditions of the old Sinatra style classics. While many male vocalists in this genre try to impersonate the likes of Frank Sinatra and Bobby Darin, Joe just sings the tunes his own way with just the right touch of those classic singers. The rhythm section is made up of John Quam on piano, Bob Chandler on bass, and Bill Belasco on drums, all well known for their excellent musicianship. The group generally performs a variety of high-end restaurants and corporate/wedding events which led to this recording.
Originally, the band went into the studio to record some demos for booking purposes. They decided to record the songs full length and just ran an 8 hour session at the Expression College for Digital Arts in Emeryville California. Expression, like many music colleges, offers musicians free studio time to give their students the opportunity to record all styles of music.
After doing the recordings, Joe Escobar thought that for a quick session, they came up with some really great tracks, so he decided to make an album from them. The entire album was self-produced by Joe Escobar. All the vocal tracks and trombone/trumpet tracks were recorded later at Joe's personal studio, where he used Cubase and Wavelab software for the final mix and mastering.

Fabulous Jazz Standards
Take a trip down memory lane with Joe Escobar as he spins a fantastic nostalgic throwback to the days of yesteryear with superb classic Jazz standards on his newly released album, “It’s My Turn.” Sit back and enjoy the classic songs on this CD as they are performed by highly talented musicians who interlace these tunes with spectacular expertise. The caliber of Escobar’s voice is not only strong and polished but he has a definite style and grace that gives these tunes a fresh quality. Kicking off the album, “Summer Wind,” is smooth Jazz at its best as Escobar croons with suave and debonair style. Another great song, “The Way You Look Tonight,” is smooth flowing with an added pizzazz of the trombone. The crisp piano complements the laid back vocals on the wonderful song, “Beyond the Sea.” If you like Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, or Bobby Darin, then you will truly appreciate the delectable Jazz standards on the fabulous album, “It’s My Turn.”
