Newport Jazz Festival: The Joey DeFrancesco Trio In Concert

Joey DeFrancesco

Airs Monday, October 28 at 8 p.m.  The Hammond B-3 organ maestro performed at the Newport Jazz Festival on August 6. This is an unhosted music-only set. If you use it, please credit Newark's WBGO, Boston's WGBH and NPR Music for the recording. Available for free to NPR member stations. Not much in jazz combines the churchy moan and shaking hip quite like a Hammond B-3 organ. And Joey DeFrancesco is one of its modern masters — he grew up around the instrument since birth (his father is also a jazz organist), cut his first major-label album in his teens and has been honing his innate swing instincts since then. He's 40 now, and will celebrate with an eponymous album in September; at Newport, he brings a soulful trio to the Harbor Stage. Recorded live at the Newport Jazz Festival on Saturday, August 6, 2011
