Welcome to a new edition of the Neon Jazz interview series with Legendary Jazz Hammond B-3 Organist, Trumpeter & Vocalist Joey DeFrancesco .. We caught up with him about his tasty new 2021 CD More Music .. On this new offering he supplements his organ virtuosity with trumpet, piano, keyboard, vocals and, for the first time he uses the tenor sax. After a year of pandemic lockdown – with stages dark and nightclubs shuttered, friends and families kept at a social distance, and political and social tensions raging – the one thing we could all use right now is More Music. That’s what Joey gives .. He was born into a musical family that included three generations of jazz musicians in Philadelphia and emerged in the 1980s starting his onset of a musical renaissance. Dig his story ..
