Joe Firstman is the frontman of Nashville-based band Cordovas, but that's just the latest chapter in his unconventional career. After landing a record deal in the early 2000s, he became the bandleader for Last Call with Carson Daly and also ran a jazz club – All before his current project. Today, Joe tells about forming Cordovas, and how he linked up with a community of rock stars in Mexico. Plus, Cordovas perform new music from their record Destiny Hotel live. Coming up, on the next World Cafe.
