Legend. It’s a word that probably gets tossed around more often than it should. But for Joey DeFrancesco, the modern master of jazz organ, “legend” is a perfect fit.
DeFrancesco emerged in the ’80s and quickly ascended as one of the youngest musicians ever recruited to play in a Miles Davis ensemble. Throughout his career, he’s recorded and toured with artists including Ray Charles, Van Morrison, Diana Krall, George Benson, and Jimmy Cobb.
