Playing in a band with Hank Mobley and Philly Joe Jones at age 10, awarded a recording contract with Columbia at 16, on tour with Miles Davis a year later… well, you get the picture. Joey DeFrancesco, a master of the jazz organ, had pretty much done it all before he hit his 20s.

Raised in Philadelphia, Joey DeFrancesco considers this the place where the foundation of his musical roots in jazz, blues, and other genres was born. To hear him play today is to discover the embodiment of the traditional art form infused with a distinct modern approach, just part of what makes his music unmistakably his own.

As he’s made abundantly clear over the past 30+ years, Joey DeFrancesco has plenty of soul. Today, his music embodies the traditional art form infused with a distinct modern approach. Credited with the resurgence of the organ in jazz, DeFrancesco has secured the sound for generations to come.

The five time Grammy® Award-nominee has received countless awards worldwide and recorded with numerous legendary musicians in addition to leading his own bands.
