Following in the footsteps of his grand-father Joe and his father Papa John, Joey DeFrancesco seemed destined to become a musician. The boy adopted the Hammond B3 organ - his dad's instrument of choice - at a very early age. At 10, young Joey was playing paying gigs. Freshly out of high school, he hit the road with Miles Davis' touring band. His first solo album, All of Me, came out in 1989. As well as collaborating with a score of high profile players like legendary organ player Jimmy Smith, DeFrancesco went on to record under his name all through the 1990s and 2000s. For All in the Family (1998), he teamed up with Papa John. On Singin' and Swingin' (2001), he used his pipes to great effect. Finger Poppin (2009) saw him pay homage to pianist Horace Silver. Wonderful! Wonderful! came out in 2012.
