When Valdés jammed with B-3 organist Joey DeFrancesco aboard the Jazz Cruise last year, there were fireworks. The two maestros played “Stella By Starlight,” “Autumn Leaves” and “Blue Monk.” It was their first time performing together, and they locked right in. There was an electric connection between these two virtuoso players who share a common approach – a soulful approach, informed by both the conservatory and the street. For Valdés, it became a no-brainer: He had to invite DeFrancesco to SFJAZZ for this special program, which pairs the Philadelphia-born organist with the Cuban pianist’s incendiary, percussion-rich combo, Jazz Bata 2.
