We are excited to announce our OPENING NIGHT – THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 30 at 730 & 10 PM will feature 5x-GRAMMY® Nominated Artist Joey DeFrancesco playing as part of his Trio!! To watch and listen to the Joey DeFrancesco Trio at JIMMY’S JAZZ & BLUES CLUB with our new state-of-the-art production, sound and lighting technologies will be a one-of-a-kind experience!! Exciting!! As the CHICAGO TRIBUNE said of Joey, “He has dominated the instrument and field as no one of his generation has.” According to the NEW YORK TIMES, “Mr. DeFrancesco is a deeply authoritative musician, a master of rhythmic pocket, and of the custom of stomping bass lines beneath chords and riffs.”
𝟓𝐱-𝐆𝐑𝐀𝐌𝐌𝐘® 𝐍𝐨𝐦𝐢𝐧𝐚𝐭𝐞𝐝 𝐀𝐫𝐭𝐢𝐬𝐭 - 𝐉𝐨𝐞𝐲 𝐃𝐞𝐅𝐫𝐚𝐧𝐜𝐞𝐬𝐜𝐨 was raised in Philadelphia, where the foundation of his musical roots in Jazz, Blues and other musical art forms were born. To hear Joey DeFrancesco today, his music embodies the traditional art form infused with a distinct modern approach, just part of what makes his music unmistakably his own. Joey has recorded and/or toured with renowned artists including Ray Charles, Van Morrison, Diana Krall, George Benson, James Moody, John Scofield, Bobby Hutcherson, Jimmy Cobb, John McLaughlin, Larry Coryell, David Sanborn and many more. Joey was also one of the two youngest players ever recruited to play in any of Miles Davis' ensembles!
