Joe Marillo has been a force in the San Diego jazz scene since the mid-1970s when he began bringing top-name jazz musicians to Mission Beach's Catamaran Hotel. He's a fine tenor sax player in his own right and, as a teacher, Joe has helped many an aspiring jazz player learn the rudiments of the music. Now 80, Joe's brings a lot of things to the table, but his most important asset is the size of his heart. It's huge. Joe Marillo recently sat down with Offramp's host T.
