The Joey DeFrancesco Trio at Miniaci March 12
(Published: February 26, 2016)

South Florida JAZZ, the area's premier modern jazz organization, is excited to present the Joey DeFrancesco Trio on Saturday, March 12, 2016 at 8:00 PM. This concert takes place at the Rose & Alfred Miniaci Performing Arts Center on the Nova Southeastern University campus, 3100 Ray Ferrero Jr Blvd, Davie 33314. Tickets are $40 ($10 students with I.D.) and can be purchased from Ticketmaster either online at southfloridajazz.org or by calling 954-462-0222.

Joey DeFrancesco is not only a masterful jazz organist, but also an accomplished trumpeter, and vocalist. He has released more than 30 albums as a leader and also has played or recorded with jazz icons Miles Davis and Jimmy Smith, as well as David Sanborn, Arturo Sandoval, Benny Golson, James Moody, Elvin Jones, John McLaughlin, George Benson, Ray Charles and even Bette Midler.

In addition to his three Grammy nominations, DeFrancesco is a 10-time winner of the Down Beat Critics Poll and has won the Down Beat Readers Poll every year since 2005, plus a number of JazzTimes and Jazz Journalist Association awards. He was an inaugural member of the Hammond Hall of Fame in 2014.

DeFranceso's emergence in the 1980s marked the renaissance for the B3 organ, which had been largely replaced by more portable keyboard synthesizers.  Joey reignited the flame with the vintage sound of his Hammond, and in so doing, also revived the careers of many other proponents of the "big dawg" of keyboard instruments. Joey, however, is the universally acknowledged "King of the Jazz Organ."
