Later, he rediscovered his passion for accordion, expanding his repertoire to include pop, rock, country, and jazz.

Joe has an impressive track record as a sideman and has toured Europe and the United States. He has worked and recorded alongside numerous notable artists, including Ravi Coltrane, Stanley Turrentine, Donald Harrison, and many more.

In addition to his mastery of the accordion, Joe Barbato is equally at ease on the piano, showcasing his versatile musical talents.

Whether it's the rhythmic heartbeat of the accordion or the soulful melodies emanating from the piano keys, Joe's incredible musicianship knows no bounds, as he effortlessly moves between these two instruments, leaving listeners spellbound.

After years of being a sideman, Joe decided that it was time for him to take on the role of a leader.
