Congratulations to Joey DeFrancesco on his 2018 GRAMMY Award nomination for his Mack Avenue CD Freedomby Joey DeFrancesco & The People as Best Jazz Instrumental Album! With the release of his debut album All Of Me(Columbia, 1989), Joey DeFrancesco reignited the flame of organ jazz, com­bining unstoppable groove with masterful technique on this often–unwieldy instrument. With over 30 recordings as a leader, his place in the illustrious lineage of jazz organists is secure, joining greats like Fats Waller, Wild Bill Davis, Jimmy Smith, and Larry Young. This Jazz Standard run pairs the Hammond B3 wizard with the exceptional rhythm team of guitarist Mark Whitfield and drummer Lenny White. “He has dominated the instrument and the field as no one of his generation has.” (The Chicago Tribune) “Mr. DeFrancesco is a deeply authoritative musician, a master of rhythmic pocket, and of the custom of stomping bass lines beneath chords and riffs.” (The New York Times)
