Biography

Joey DeFrancesco comes from a musical family. His grandfather, Joseph DeFrancesco (his name sake), was a reed man who played with the Dorsey Brothers. And of course his father "Papa" John DeFrancesco is a fine jazz organist in his own right. At the age of 4 Joey began taking a strong interest in the organ. By the time he was five, he was playing Jimmy Smith solos verbatim. As the ... Read more in Amazon's Joey De Francesco Store

Editorial Reviews

Joey DeFrancesco has come a long way from his recording debut made in 1989 as a fresh-faced 17-year-old. From the get-go, he established his credentials with virtuoso technique and an innate soulfulness that he developed under the tutelage of his father, Papa John DeFrancesco. Combining monstrous chops with a flair for showmanship, DeFrancesco is regarded by organ aficionados as the baddest B-3 burner in the business. Joey's latest manages to look both ahead and back back to the trio's roots which extend back 15 years and ahead to musical triumphs to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars A "Must Have" for your jazz organ collection January 2, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Every once in a while a great live Jazz CD comes around that stands out and just grabs your attention. This is one of them. I have compiled quite a collection of jazz organ CD's over the last few years, and "Snapshot" is definitely a keeper. Mr. Defrancesco is arguably credited by many as reviving the Hammond B3 and jazz organ music in the mid-90's with albums like "Live at the Five Spot" and "Incredible".

Part of the reason this album is so good maybe because he has regrouped with his original trio, Byron "Wookie" Landham (drums) and Paul Bollenback (guitar). Aside from Joey, maybe that's what makes this album so special?

It's absolutely amazing how these three play so intuitively and instinctively together (in the pocket). I can't find any one of the tracks a throw-away for this album. Joey and company seem to move seamlessly from mainstream jazz, to funk, to blues, and back to mainstream with no effort at all. No one overplays their solos and all seem to be able to step out of the way and let each other have a turn to shine throughout the album. They create a rare synergistic effect often only captured in a live setting like this, but with great sound quality.

Recorded live in Scottsdale Arizona at the Kerr Cultural Center on 03-05-09, notable tracks are "You Don't Know Me" and "Fly Me to The Moon". I've heard dozens of different, tired, re-tread takes on "Fly Me" but this one is really special. Mr. Defrancesco's souful approach to "You Don't Know Me" is definitely in the spirit of the late Ray Charles.

Bravo, Joey D., you've definitely hit a home run this time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Joey DeFrancesco doe sit again November 14, 2009
Format:Audio CD
I'll admit that I'm prejudiced against jazz organ players; dynamics aren't terribly easy to change on electric organs (certainly not like on acoustic instruments) so organ jazz tends to sound sort of dry to me. Probably the one consistent exception in my mind is Joey DeFrancesco who, besides being a master of the instrument, also knows how to put a band together and work of his fellow musicians. Such is the case here, with a band whose apparently been playing together for 15 years. It has a fun range of sound, from a sort of funk inspired version of "Eighty One", to the slow blues of "You don't know me" to a smoldering "Whichole". Each song individually has a nice dynamic arc (even songs that start off sounding like ballads start to burn somewhere in the middle) and the band really knows how to play off each other. All in All, a lot of fun that I would recommend to anyone who likes a good Hammond B3 player and even to those who don't.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic jazz organ recording June 17, 2010
By Palomar
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I saw these three musicians perform this set a couple months ago. The performance was great, but this recording from six months prior is even better. The musicians are extremely tight and "in the pocket." The quality of the recording is high. On the evening of this recording, the band was performing at its peak. Thankfully, the audience seems unaware that the show is being recorded.

5.0 out of 5 stars as good as any January 2, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I haven't listened to my Joey D albums enough to be able to say definitively that this is his best, but it is certainly at least equal to any of his other works. A couple things I like about it- this later album seems to me to reflect an ongoing improvement in his organ playing over time, although his earlier work is pretty darn good too. And while on some of his albums his sidemen seem to be a notch below him in talent, Paul Bollenback's jazz guitar on this album is at the same high level as Defrancesco's organ playing.

1.0 out of 5 stars very disappointing May 11, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I own 6 Joey Defranceso CD's and to my ear, this is the most unexciting and
mediocre of the bunch. It might get better as it goes along, but the first 3-4 tracks
sound like left over recordings pieced together to make a cd. I couldn't bear to listen any further.

I do not like musicians talking and introducing
music on my cd's. After you hear the recording once these tracks become a total annoyance.
