Joey DeFrancesco Trio
Green Curry Fish with Sweet Potatoes, Mushrooms & Spinach
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. And who better to supply that demand than Joey DeFrancesco? More Music, DeFrancesco’s new album, is “more” in every conceivable way. It offers up ten new 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.” “It’s time for more music,” DeFrancesco declares. “This situation has been difficult for so many people. It’s definitely time to get back at it.”
