Carnegie Hall Citywide: Joe Bataan

May 18, 2019 4:00pm

It’s a rare artist who can be credited with defining a genre, but singer-keyboardist Joe Bataan is the standard-bearer for boogaloo—the fiery fusion of Latin rhythms and gritty New York–centric soul music that exploded onto the scene in the late 1960s. Bataan is still pumping out these sizzling beats, singing doo-wop–tinged, Latin-laced favorites like the funky “Subway Joe” and smooth and soulful “Ordinary Guy,” lifting audiences out of their seats and getting their feet moving.
