John's Grammy® nominated big band CD 'On The Wild Side' along with 'Fantazm' and his latest 'Caravan' on the Jazz Compass® label, have been met with tremendous artistic and commercial success and are on the way to becoming jazz big band standards.

As co-producer and arranger for The Glenn Miller Orchestra Christmas recordings (In The Christmas Mood I & II) John has received Gold & Platinum Records and his arrangement of 'Jingle Bells' from those recordings can be heard in the Academy Award winning film 'La La Land.' Mr. La Barbera is a Professor Emeritus of Music at the University of Louisville's School of Music and an international clinician/lecturer.

He is also co-founder of the Diva Jazz Orchestra.

His career has recently been profiled in 'Bebop, Swing and Bella Musica: Jazz and the Italian American Experience' and in dozens of publications and encyclopedias. John's published works are considered standards in the field of jazz education.
