ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
At seventeen jazz organist Joey DeFrancesco toured with Miles Davis (who showed DeFrancesco how to play trumpet). Since then this child prodigy and five year consecutive Downbeat Critics and Readers poll winner has changed the landscape of Jazz organ forever. He was the force behind the Hammond B-3 resurgence in the 80’s while embracing and recording with organ legends Jimmy Smith, Jimmy McGriff, and Jack McDuff. Grammy Nominated DeFrancesco is one of the finest and complex improvisers today and probably the youngest jazz great. His speed, timing, musicality, and feel, gives him the flexibility to play any style and move smoothly from a slow ballad to a burning swing. His influences are all the greats before him. On this album you’ll hear the influences of Miles Davis, Frank Sinatra and John Coltrane. Joey has it all, this album is a great representation of what he can do-he sings, he plays trumpet, flugel horn, and organ.
Sharing the spotlight is Italian pianist, Massimo Faraò. He tours internationally and has played with such greats as Benny Golson, Archie Shepp, Jimmy Cobb, Ray Brown, Ron Carter, Buster Williams, and Sheila Jordan. One Estate, Faraò delicately interplays with DeFrancesco to create complimentary lines, and beautiful spacing not to get in the others’ way. There is some fantastic counterpoint on the tune, “Fly me to the moon”. Organ and piano records are not so typical because not everyone can play with another chordal instrument-but these two have more the proven it can be tastefully executed with keyboards in an artful way.
The heartbeat is drummer, Byron “Wookie” Landham. Landham spends most of his time on the road and has been playing with DeFrancesco for twenty years. The two share the groove making the simultaneous musical hits and breaks sound as thought it’s coming from the same person. He plays with such sensitivity and intensity that he has been revered by other instrumentalist and singers, including Betty Carter, with whom he toured. Landham, long overlooked by the media, is a long time endorsee for Bosphorus Cymbols, Taye Drums, and Regal Tip (look for the “Byron “Wookie” Landham” signature stick). He has played all over the world at every major jazz festival. Out of his love for Philly, when he is home, if you’re lucky you’ll catch him running a jam session at Ortleibs Jazzhouse.
And lastly, Italian bassist, Aldo Zunino plays with groove, poise and intent. He started playing very young and as a teen played with Shirley Scott. He has toured with many groups, and has recorded with the likes Bobby Durham, Tony Scott, and Jimmy Cobb. He has performed in Europe with Art Farmer, Harry “Sweets” Edison, Lew Tabackim, Gary Bartz, Tommy Flanagan, George Cables, and Kenny Burrell.
Estate is a great representation of all four of these amazing players and would be enjoyed by the jazz novice to the jazz enthusiast. Enjoy…
