    I was more impressed by Oscar Peterson. I find this kind of commonplace.

    The builds to the climaxes in his solos are very nice. He has a nice strong sense of rhythm too!

    Miles once said that Peterson had to "learn" how to play the blues; not a compliment. I feel the same about DeFrancesco; there's no there there.

    Check out one of Joey's early CDs entitled Rebbopin'. It's 75 minutes of great jazz and Joey plays organ and trumpet. Paul Bollenback is on guitar. Another great CD is Relentless with the late great Danny Gatton on guitar. My two favorite Joey D. albums.

    I've also been turned onto Larry Goldings!

    This is a good set with Goldings and Scofield.

    Another favorite Joey D. track. Black Nile is a Wayne Shorter tune. This one has a more modern feel that reminds me of Larry Young.
