2009-11-17Certain Jazz recordings fit the timeless category and this is certainly one of them. Joey DeFrancesco a true master of the Hammond B3 reunites with Paul Bollenback on guitar and Byron Landham on drums. It is easy to compare Joey’s B3 sound to the late great Jimmy Smith; Paul has a cool Wes Montgomery or Kenny Burrell sound to his guitar, while Byron Landham rounds out the band with his relaxed approached to the drums. Even though this is a 2009 live recording it has the feel of a Smokey jazz club found in the 1960’s. It is easy to tell that this original trio can anticipate each other as they improvise through seven terrific tracks. I guess that is why I call this recording timeless. Reviewed By: Gregg Saur
