Newport Jazz Festival 2011: Joey DeFrancesco Trio In Concert

Joey DeFrancesco at Newport Jazz Festival 2011

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.

Newport Jazz Festival 2011: Grace Kelly with Phil Woods In Concert

Grace Kelly with Phil Woods at Newport Jazz Festival 2011

Airs Tuesday, December 13th at 9:00 p.m.
The Boston-area alto saxophonist Grace Kelly is 19. The NEA Jazz Master and alto saxophonist Phil
Woods is 79. But the ambitious Kelly has already won over many with impressive command of her
instrument — including the fleet-fingered Woods, who entered the studio with her (and pianist Monty
Alexander) in 2010 to make a recording. Man With The Hat salutes Woods' sartorial trademark; he'll
be Kelly's guest at the Harbor Stage in Newport. Recorded live at the Newport Jazz Festival on Saturday, August 6, 2011.
