Joey DeFrancesco Masterclass and Performance

June 11 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

PM Woodwind is very happy to welcome, for the first time, legendary jazz musician and multi-instrumentalist Joey DeFrancesco for a Masterclass and Performance.
Raised in Philadelphia, this is where the foundation of his musical roots in Jazz, Blues and other musical art forms were born. Joey DeFrancesco’s emergence in the 1980s marked the onset of a musical renaissance. Organ jazz had all but gone into hibernation from the mid-’70s to the mid-’80s until DeFrancesco reignited the flame with his vintage Hammond organ and Leslie speaker cabinet.
DeFrancesco has recorded and/or toured with his own groups as well as numerous renowned artists that include Ray Charles, Van Morrison, Diana Krall, Nancy Wilson, George Benson, James Moody, John Scofield, Bobby Hutcherson, Jimmy Cobb, John McLaughlin, Larry Coryell, David Sanborn and many more. The four time Grammy® Award-nominee, with more than 30 recordings as a leader under his belt, has received countless Jazz Journalist Association awards and other accolades worldwide, including being inducted into the inaugural Hammond Organ Hall of Fame in 2014.
Chicago bassist Ivan Taylor and Chicago drummer George Fludas will be joining Joey.
As always, this event is free and open to the public. While reservations are not required, you can call or email to reserve a spot since seating is limited.
