Joey DeFranceso plays the Van Gelder Studio organ - May 15/16

Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey, home to the Van Gelder Studio. This evening's live stream, or rather a re-stream, the original stream going online across North America late Saturday/early Sunday, featured Joey DeFranceso playing the Van Gelder Hammond B3.

Down the years the famous vaulted building has hosted many of the biggest names in the business - Miles, Monk, Trane and, of course, the Hammond B3 masters. Larry Young's Tyrone opened the show, the instrumentalists heard to great effect. The one surprise was a malfunctioning PA mic. Studio MD Don Sickler spoke first and the man was all but inaudible. A top line studio, in-house engineers, how did it go so wrong?! However, the music was all important and DeFrancesco positively revelled in playing the B3. To his left, the renowned Peter Bernstein, guitar, to his right, drummer Billy Hart. It doesn't get much better than that! 

The classic Hammond-guitar sound didn't disappoint as DeFrancesco and Bernstein knocked out a succession of blues-drenched numbers...Moanin'One for RudyJ.O.S.. The trio's special guest, Houston Person, blew great laid back, gutsy tenor on Our Miss Brooks, Don Patterson's Aries (Sonny Stitt recorded the number with its composer) and the set closer, Soft Winds
