Joey DeFrancesco Trio

  • Jazz Standard 116 East 27th Street New York, NY, 10016 United States (map)

Shows at 7:30pm & 9:30pm nightly.

Joey DeFrancesco, who learned his first licks at the knee of his jazz organist father “Papa Joe” Francesco, is widely credited with reigniting the flame of organ jazz beginning in the 1980s. Joey DeFrancesco’s emergence in the 1980s marked the onset of a musical renaissance. With his vintage Hammond B3 and Leslie tone cabinet, Joey became the foremost proponent of his generation of an instrument that had been pushed aside in favor of evolving keyboard technology, bringing along with him a deep groove and amazing facility. With over 30 recordings as a leader including his latest Trip Mode (High Note), the Philadelphia native son deservingly takes his place with Fats Waller, Wild Bill Davis and Jimmy Smith in the illustrious lineage of jazz organ.
