He has dominated the instrument and the field as no one of his generation has.
Mr. DeFrancesco is a deeply authoritative musician, a master of rhythmic pocket, and of the custom of stomping bass lines beneath chords and riffs.
—New York Times
Ranging from sublime to positively pyrotechnic . . . the best B3 player on the planet.
With over 30 recordings as a leader and countless collaborations with modern jazz masters, Joey DeFrancesco deservingly takes his place alongside Fats Waller, Wild Bill Davis, and Jimmy Smith in the lineage of the jazz organ.
DeFrancesco marked the onset of a jazz organ renaissance when he emerged in the 1980s, stirring new interest in the genre with his vintage Hammond organ and Leslie tone cabinet. The four-time Grammy Award nominee has received several awards from the Jazz Journalists Association in addition to his many other worldwide accolades. He was one of the first inductees into the Hammond Hall of Fame in 2014, and he was honored on the Philadelphia Music Alliance Walk of Fame in 2016.
More Music, released in September 2021, offers 10 new DeFrancesco originals brought to life by a scintillating new trio. And the master organist, who has long supplemented his keyboard virtuosity with his skilled trumpet playing, brings out his full arsenal: organ, keyboard, piano, trumpet, and, for the first time on record, tenor saxophone.
