ABOUT JOEY DEFRANCESCO
The first night of the Jazz Organ Festival week begins, appropriately, with the GRAMMY-nominated phenomenon who began playing at age four, signed his first record deal at age 16, and is credited with the resurgence of the Hammond organ in jazz. Son of organ master “Papa” John, DeFrancesco continues the legacy of Jazz Organ greats like Jimmy Smith, Jack McDuff and Jimmy McGriff that proceeded him. At 17 DeFrancesco toured with Miles Davis and remains the most virtuosic and electrifying organist in jazz, recording over 30 albums and winning the DownBeat Critics Poll eleven times and Readers Poll every years since 2005. In addition to his incomparable skill as an organist, DeFrancesco is also an accomplished trumpeter and vocalist. His most recent collaboration is with rock legend Van Morrison, making their West Coast premiere performance at SFJAZZ last season and recording their new Sony Legacy album You’re Driving Me Crazy.

«Mr. DeFrancesco is a deeply authoritative musician, a master of rhythmic pocket, and of the custom of stomping bass lines beneath chords and riffs.» -The New York Times

ABOUT TAMMY HALL
Opening the show will be the superlative solo artist and bandleader, Bay Area-based pianist, organist, and composer Tammy Hall. Beginning her musical journey at age four, she honed her skills in the church and later in studies at Oakland’s Mills College before setting out on a professional career in collaboration with a roster of major artists including Mary Wilson, Kim Nalley, Marcus Shelby, Houston Person, David “Fathead” Newman, Pamela Rose, Queen Esther Marrow, Ernestine Anderson, and Regina Carter, among dozens of others.

«Possessing an uncluttered, telegraphic style marked by her classical training and deep roots in gospel, Hall combines elegance and grit.» -JazzTimes
