Spiritual Grooves Joey DeFrancesco Trio Tammy Hall Trio

The first night of the B3 Festival week begins, appropriately, with the GRAMMY-nominated phenomenon Joey DeFrancesco, who began playing at age four, signed his first record deal at age 16, and is credited with the resurgence of the Hammond organ in jazz. Son of organ master “Papa” John DeFrancesco, he continues the legacy of jazz organ greats like Jimmy Smith, Jack McDuff and Jimmy McGriff who preceded him. At 17, DeFrancesco toured with Miles Davis and remains the most virtuosic and electrifying organist in jazz, recording over 30 albums and winning the DownBeat Critics Poll eleven times and Readers Poll every year since 2005. In addition to his incomparable skill as an organist, DeFrancesco is also an accomplished trumpeter and vocalist. His most recent collaboration is with rock legend Van Morrison, making their West Coast premiere performance at SFJAZZ last season and recording their new Sony Legacy album You’re Driving Me Crazy.
