Interview with Joey DeFrancesco

Joey's got a really nice new cd out called "Organic Vibes" which features Bobby Hutcherson, George Coleman, and Ron Blake, plus Joey's regular band. At times it reminds me of Grant Green's album "Street of Dreams" (which also featured Hutcherson, with Grant, Elvin Jones and organist Larry Young). I got a chance last week to interview Joey on the phone, you can listen to it in Real Audio format here.

I saw Joey, long ago and far away, with John McLaughlin and Dennis Chambers, in Buenos Aires. A good show, I remember Joey leaving the stage playing his trumpet.
He is a great musician, quite underrated, but that's nothing new in the music scene, specially in jazz, with the "starlets" coming from time to time from under the rocks and some magazine's covers, just to "steal the show". So, really happy to see Joey alive and kicking!!!!!!

I saw the same show in Sacramento. Joey's organ vibrated the whole theatre. Nice show.

Yes,good show, John was really deep into Coltrane's music at the time. A really powerful trio.
