Joey DeFrancesco Trio Live at Blues Alley (6/3/05)

2 posts in this topic

Last Friday I saw the Joey DeFrancesco Trio at Blues Alley (in Washington DC) with special guest George Coleman (tenor sax).

The Trio came out first and played "The Champ" in tribute to Jimmy Smith. Then they played "I Got My Mojo Working" as heard on the Joey-Jimmy album but this time the vocals were by Joey. They played a few other numbers and then George Coleman joined the group and played a number of standards. They didn't announce them but there was a bossa nova number (probably "Girl from Ipanema") and some standards and bebop tunes.

This was the first time I ever heard a hammond B3 organ in person and I must say it was great. I couldn't see the keyboard or Joey's hands but the sounds coming from out of it were quite impressive. It was also a great pleasure to hear George in person for the first time.

Members of Joey's family were in attendance and he acknowledged them at the end of the first set.

Wish I could have gone to this but couldn't make it. Glad it was a good show.
