Along for the journey are his touring comrades, Dan Wilson on guitar and drummer Jason Brown. Bassist Mike Boone is enlisted on a few piano tracks." - Jazz Times
Three-time Grammy nominee, master of the jazz organ, trumpeter and vocalist Joey DeFrancesco swings hard and straight ahead. A prodigious talent at an early age, he joined the Miles Davis band when he was seventeen. At eighteen, he began touring with his own quartet. At twenty-two, John Mclaughlin called him along with drummer Dennis Chambers to form the group “Free Spirits.” Subsequently, Joey worked with greats such as George Benson, James Moody and Ray Charles. He’s won the Downbeat Critics Poll ten times and the Readers Poll every year since 2005. His current trio with Dan Wilson guitar and Jason Brown drums promises to rock the house.
