Witness the world premiere of a new all-star trio assembled exclusively for this Jazz at Lincoln Center performance. The dream team comes in a classic organ trio format, with Joey DeFrancesco on the pedals and keys, tenor titan Chris Potter on saxophone, and Jeff “Tain” Watts holding it down on drums. Each musician will contribute brand-new music and revisit some old favorites for the occasion.

 

Joey DeFrancesco is arguably the greatest jazz organist alive. He plays the Hammond organ—practically a full band by itself—with ease and obvious, infectious delight. Drummer Jeff “Tain” Watts is a genius of fiery rhythmic propulsion, and he has played on every Grammy Award–winning album that Wynton or Branford Marsalis has ever recorded. Chris Potter is one of the best saxophone soloists across an enormous range of styles and instrumental configurations, and fellow musicians have been studying him for years.

 

Come check out the new tunes and tricks these virtuosos have in store for one another in the group’s anticipated debut performance.
