Joey DeFrancesco Trio

A powerhouse group, the Joey DeFrancesco Trio is led by three time Grammy nominee, Master of the Jazz Organ, Trumpeter & Vocalist, Joey DeFrancesco, along with trio members Jason Brown & Dan Wilson, offering a hard-driving performance that swings straight ahead. A prodigious talent at an early age, Joey took interest in the organ. At just seventeen years old, Joey was already signed with Columbia Records, released his first record “All of Me,” the record responsible for the great resurgence of the Hammond sound in popular music, and was called on by the great Miles Davis to join his band and tour Europe. Joey was influenced greatly by Miles, which led to his interest in playing the trumpet. Joey has been around the world and back with his own trio, and has played and recorded with some of the greatest musicians in the world.  The Joey DeFrancesco Trio combines three incredible talents, offering a fresh rhythmic and harmonic approach to modern jazz.
