Newport Jazz Festival 2011: Joey DeFrancesco Trio In Concert
Airs Tuesday, December 20 at 9:00 p.m.
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.
