Latest review: "The visual and audial Sparrow-Pallatto experience is reminiscent of the beats of the 1950s. With a little imagination one could be transported back to the coffee house days of Greenwich Village when Allen Ginsberg and Jack Kerouac reigned supreme."
- Marilyn Lester, NiteLife Exchange
...from New York to Chicago with thanks to Ralph Lampkin!

"Joanie and Sparrow have elevated what they do together splendidly. They're uniquely entertaining Chicago artists."
- Howard Mandel

Vocalist Joanie Pallatto and Pianist and Composer Bradley Parker-Sparrow claim Chicago as their home - their life in music has blossomed over the decades, along with their marriage. As co-owners of Southport Records and producers and engineers at Sparrow Sound Design Recording Studio, together they have released close to 150 recordings since 1977 - mostly of jazz artists, along with cabaret performers and contemporary classical composers. Over the years, the revered artists in the Southport catalog include Von Freeman, George Freeman, Willie Pickens, Fred Anderson, King Fleming and George Flynn.

Joanie & Sparrow were named 2016 Jazz Heroes by the Jazz Journalists Association for their extraordinarily broad support of Chicago's community of musicians. For over twelve years as curators of their "Southport Records Presents" series at Katerina's in Chicago, Joanie and Sparrow opened each evening with their duets of original music, followed by featuring a different artist from their Southport Records label.

"The Last Cabrini" (a Southport Film ©2012) premiered at Chicago's CIMMFest 2016 - a cinema tone poem with Rick Kogan, narrator and Joanie Pallatto, voice. Shot, directed, edited and composed by Sparrow.
