I saw the Joey deFrancesco Trio at Java Jazz in Jakarta in March. It was the highlight of the festival for me. Joey is the best jazz organist on the planet. He is also an exceptional trumpet player, in the style of Miles Davis. And he sings like Frank Sinatra! Wow! His trio is fantastic, with Dan Wilson on guitar and Jason Brown on drums. A smart jazz promoter would be bringing this guy and his band to Australia. It just doesn't get any better than Joey DeFrancesco.
