Joey DeFrancesco: Incredible!
Recorded live and in concert October 28, 1999 at Bimbo’s 365 Club in San Francisco, the session features extended tracks that allow room for DeFrancesco’s kind of stretching out. The sound is quite clear, and the audience reaction seems refreshing. With his own guitarist and drummer, Jimmy Smith joins the younger organist for two impromptu medleys. Heard from separate right and left channels, the pair converse and comp for one another. They end up with a blazing "St. Thomas" that excites both the "live" audience and the extended listening audience. The master and the young lion make quite a remarkable team.
