Today we’re bringing you a mix from the heir apparent to the Hammond B-3 Organ, Joey DeFrancesco. DeFrancesco began sitting in on his father’s gigs by age 6 continually progressing on his B-3. By age 17 Miles Davis had asked Joey to join his band which resulted in DeFrancesco touring Europe with Miles and recording the classic Amandla album. Later he went on to record with other legends of the organ including Jack McDuff and Jimmy Smith as well as leading his own band. Check out below as we take a trip through his discography.
