Joey DeFrancesco's virtuoso technique, innate soulfulness, and unending reservoir of creative, blues-drenched harmonic and melodic ideas have made him a peerless master of the jazz Hammond B-3 organ. In this perfectly paced outing, the organ phenomenon burns red-hot on swinging blues tunes, and smolders with tastefully restrained passion on beautiful ballads. Joey receives empathetic support from the longtime members of his stalwart trio (Paul Bollenback on guitar and Byron Landham on drums) and some very special guests (guitar wizard Pat Martino and soulful saxophonist Gary Bartz). Joey's father, Papa John DeFrancesco, and his brother, John DeFrancesco, also sit in, making this outing as much fun as it is musically masterful.
