Joey Defrancesco

Joey_DefrancescoJoey Defrancesco is perhaps the greatest living disciple of the jazz organ. Having released over 30 albums, Joey D has played with legends like Jimmy Smith and Miles Davis. Perhaps the most amazing part of his story is how young he was when he started his journey. In this conversation we learn how he mastered Jimmy Smith’s classic “The Sermon” verbatim at age 4, led a band with Hank Mobley and Sonny Stitt at age 10, and joined Miles Davis’ group before he was old enough to vote.
