While he possesses an expansive palate of expressive devices and techniques, the focus of his playing is always on generating a deep and propulsive groove. This has taken him around the world, allowing him to share his talents with audiences throughout North and South America, Europe, Asia, Africa, the Middle East and the Caribbean. Cohen relocated to New York City from his hometown of Chicago in April of 2012. There is a $25 cover plus a $10 food/drink minimum.
NYC: JOEY DEFRANCESCO ORGAN QUARTET AT BIRDLAND
Joey DeFrancesco Organ Quartet with Special Guest George Coleman will perform at BIRDLAND (315 West 44th Street, NYC - 212-581-3080 ) on Tuesday through Saturday, May 13th through 17th with shows at 8:30 & 11:00 pm. Joey DeFrancesco comes from a musical family. His Grandfather Joseph DeFrancesco (his name sake) was a reed man. His father "Papa" John DeFrancesco is a fine jazz organist in his own right. At the age of 4 Joey began taking a strong interest in the organ. By the time he was five, he was playing Jimmy Smith songs verbatim. As the years went on his interest and love for the organ and music grew stronger. At 10 years of age he began to play in a Band in Philadelphia, which featured legendary players Hank Mobley on Tenor Saxophone, and "Philly" Joe Jones on the Drums. At 16 he signed an exclusive recording contract with Columbia Records, releasing his first record "All Of Me" at 17. This record was single handedly responsible for the great resurgence of the Hammond sound in popular music. Also in his 17th year he was called on by the great Miles Davis to join his band, and toured all over Europe. It was at that time that Joey, inspired by Miles's sound, picked up the trumpet & started playing. To this day, Joey continues to play the trumpet, very similar to the style of Miles. Joey has been around the world and back dozens of times with his own trio, but also playing and recording with some of the greatest musicians in the world such as, Ray Charles, Bette Midler, David Sanborn, Arturo Sandoval, Frank Wess, Benny Golson, James Moody, Steve Gadd, Elvin Jones, Jimmy Cobb, George Benson, John Scofield, Joe Lovano, and many more. Currently, Joey continues to tour with his own group, and other all-star projects. There is a $40 cover plus a $10 food/drink minimum.
NYC: JOHN SCOFIELD ORGANIC TRIO WITH LARRY GOLDINGS & GREG HUTCHINSON
The John Scofield Trio with Larry Goldings & Greg Hutchinson will perform atTHE BLUE NOTE (131 West 3rd Street, NYC - 212-475-8592 ) on Tuesday through Sunday, May 13th through 18th with shows at 8:00 & 10:30 pm. John Scofield's guitar work has influenced jazz since the late 70's and is going strong today. Possessor of a very distinctive sound and stylistic diversity, Scofield is a masterful jazz improviser whose music generally falls somewhere between post-bop, funk edged jazz, and R & B. Born in Ohio and raised in suburban Connecticut, Scofield took up the guitar at age 11, inspired by both rock and blues players. He attended Berklee College of Music in Boston. After a debut recording with Gerry Mulligan and Chet Baker, Scofield was a member of the Billy Cobham-George Duke band for two years. In 1977 he recorded with Charles Mingus, and joined the Gary Burton quartet. He began his international career as a bandleader and recording artist in 1978. From 1982-1985, Scofield toured and recorded with Miles Davis. Since that time he has prominently led his own groups in the international Jazz scene, recorded over 30 albums as a leader, many already classics. There is a $20-$35 cover.
