Jammin' with Joey

I have been using Aebersold play-alongs for decades and Joey DeFrancesco happens to be my favourite contemporary Hammond Organ player. So I am happy Aebersold has issued two great play-along albums that feature the Joey DeFrancesco trio. You can find them on Spotify too.

Volume 118 "Groovin' Jazz"
This play-along features Joey with his trio groovin' on blues, standards, and originals. Rhythm Section: Joey DeFrancesco (B-3 Organ); Jake Langley (guitar); Carmen Intorre (drums)

I have been jammin' along with them for a while now. Here's three recent vids that I recorded with them. The first two vids are from volume 118 and the last vid (I am playing my old Strat that I retrieved from the attic!!!) is from volume 123. The Strat sounds surprisingly nice. Had to roll off the tone knob quite a bit though ....
