Changes for June & July

*Robert Glasper Trio has been cancelled. In its place will be the Joey DeFrancesco Trio.*
Thursday – Sunday, June 25 – 28
JOEY DEFRANCESCO TRIO

Joey DeFrancesco – Hammond B-3 Organ
Jerry Weldon – tenor sax (6/25-6/27)
Carmen Intorre – drums (6/25-6/27)
Paul Bollenback – guitar (6/28)
Byron Landham – drums (6/28)

When the powerhouse jazz organist Joey DeFrancesco takes the stage, he’s standing on some big shoulders: Father “Papa John” DeFrancesco was himself a legendary Philly-area organ player, and grandpa Joe DeFrancesco was a multi-instrumentalist who worked with the Dorsey Brothers. On Joey D!, his latest High Note album, Joey DeFrancesco (along with tenor man Jerry Weldon and drummer Byron Landham) applies his technical mastery and unerring sense of swing to tunes ranging from “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” to Gene Ammons’ “Blues Up and Down.” In a review of a recent show at the Jazz Showcase, Howard Reich of the Chicago Tribune notes “the sheer profusion of his ideas and the whirlwind nature of his finger work reminded listeners why he is the despair of uncounted jazz organists.” $25/$30 Friday & Saturday
