About Joe Caruso

“Upgrade your wedding.”

Tony Bennett says: “Joe, your voice sounds beautiful. Keep singing!” (Click Audio Below).

Joe Caruso and his superb trio (piano, bass and drums) perform swingin’ standards from various eras.

Songs include: “The Way You Look Tonight,” “Fly Me To the Moon,” “New York State of Mind” and “What A Wonderful World.”

Swinging the Great American Songbook, as well as other pop standards and love songs, Joe relies on a vocal technique called the bel canto (Italian, “beautiful singing”) method. Tony Bennett once said that as a student of this discipline, he was taught to get to the center of the note, and that this is the essence of bel canto singing. A protege of Mr. Bennett, Joe is renowned for his great phrasing, clarity of diction and sheer thrill of sound.
