I'm going to see the Joey DeFrancesco Trio play. And I'm seeing them at a shitty dive bar. Where jazz shows are meant to be played.
Anybody who likes jazz should check Mr. DeFrancesco out. I saw him once before with Pat Martino at a club in Philadelphia called Chris's and it was pretty super fantastic awesome. That was a place I used to go a lot, saw Chris Potter, Dave Douglas, a bunch of other great shows. I was 18 and for some reason they always kept bringing the pitchers of Yuengling to our table.
The guy editing this video has a little too much fun with it. For some reason there are double mirror images of Joey D. at the end...
Good Stuff, Chris. thanks for the turn on to DeFrancesco. Cool is cool. And you're right, Jazz is meant to be played cool in a hard, hard place.ReplyDelete
