Delaware native Joe Baione is a master vibist

In the upper echelon of jazz musicians, Joe Baione stands out. He plays the vibraphone, a percussion instrument with tuned metal bars, and he is a recognized music educator who studied jazz performance at the University of Maryland.

Baione will bring his vibraphones to perform at 5 p.m., Sunday, Feb. 5, at The Room at Cedar Grove near Lewes. The event benefits Paul Kares, a charity supporting young musicians and aspiring culinary professionals.

Jazz is in Baione’s blood. His father is clarinetist-saxophonist-educator Jim Baione, a graduate of Philadelphia’s prestigious Combs Conservatory of Music. Joe’s brothers are also musicians.

Baione has performed at some of the world’s most prestigious festivals, and he’s gained local fans at the Rehoboth Beach Jazz Festival and on The Freeman Stage.

The $75 ticket price includes a four-course dinner with wine pairings. Gratuity is not included.

“It’s not every day you can hear an accomplished vibist play jazz in an intimate setting,” said Paul Cullen, chef, musician, former bass player with Bad Company, co-founder of Paul Kares and owner of Paul’s Kitchen, which shares space with The Room at Cedar Grove. “We’re re-creating the old jazz clubs of the past and adding a modern touch.”
