Joey DeFrancesco More Music
Release Date: September 24, 2021
Label: Mack Avenue
After a year of pandemic lockdown - with stages dark and nightclubs shuttered, friends and families kept at a social distance, and political and social tensions raging - the one thing we could all use right now is More Music.
It offers up ten new Joey DeFrancesco originals, brought to life by a scintillating new trio. And the master organist, who has long supplemented his keyboard virtuoso with his skilled trumpet playing, here brings out his full arsenal: organ, keyboard, piano, trumpet, and, for the first time on record, tenor saxophone. He also steps to the microphone to croon Mario Romano’s yearning “And If You Please.”
