Joey DeFrancesco Trio

Sponsored by Jon & Barbara Topp

“The man plays the Hammond B-3 with a fluidity and ease that most organists of his generation would be hard-pressed to match.” The Chicago Tribune

Not much in jazz combines the churchy moan and shaking hip like a Hammond B-3 organ, and Joey DeFrancesco is one of its modern masters. Playing with Hank Mobley and “Philly” Joe Jones at just 10 years old, and joining Miles Davis’s band at 17, DeFrancesco has had a storied career that has seen him travel the world with some of the greatest musicians of all-time, leading to the resurgence of the organ in jazz today. Both a top-flight organist and an accomplished trumpeter, he has won a raft of awards from both jazz critics and listeners alike, and has been nominated for two Grammy Awards. DeFrancesco embellishes his swingin’, old-school organ with his own ferocious sound.

style: straight-ahead/soul jazz

    Is there any group discount for the Nov. 14 7:30 performance by joey Defrancesco? I would have a group of 6 or more. Do you reserve tables? My friend is turning 90 and I would like to make it very special for him.

    Thanks!

    Hi Mark, We don’t offer discounts for groups under 20, but we do have reserved seating. You can call Daniel in our box office at 314.289.4030 to pick out and purchase tickets. I hope you can come celebrate at the Bistro!

    Who is playing with Joey Defrancesco when he comes to the bistro? I saw a you tube video with a drummer and Frank Vignola. Any chance that is the line up? Thanks, Bruce

    Paul Bollenback – guitar
    Jeremy Thomas – drums

    That lineup with Frank Vignola sounds intriguing…maybe next time!
