Joey DeFrancesco
Jazz/Blues
Presented by Irvine Barclay Theatre
Wednesday, May 20, 2020


A four-time Grammy Award nominee with more than 30 recordings as a leader under his belt, Joey DeFrancesco is the master of the mighty B-3. Credited as single-handedly reinvigorating organ jazz in the mid-eighties with his vintage Hammond, DeFrancesco has collaborated with artists including Ray Charles, Diana Krall, Miles Davis and George Benson.

Called the “reigning king of jazz organ" (JazzTimes), DeFrancesco’s rousing technique is capable of death-defying pace and soulful improvisation, generating a swinging, joyous sound that’s unmatched among contemporary jazz organists.

“He has dominated the instrument and the field as no one of his generation has.”
 – Chicago Tribune
