Well-known as the finest organist in jazz and also a superb trumpeter, what Joey DeFrancesco accomplishes in just one show is nothing short of incredible. His music embodies the traditional organ trio form infused with a distinct modern approach, just part of what makes his music unmistakably his own.
Joey DeFrancesco’s emergence in the 1980s marked the onset of a musical renaissance. Organ jazz had all but gone into hibernation from the mid-’70s to the mid-’80s until DeFrancesco reignited the flame. With a natural gift for music, DeFrancesco also swiftly picked up the trumpet after a touring stint with Miles Davis as one of the youngest players ever recruited for any of Davis’ ensembles.
