Papa' John DeFrancesco put aside his successful playing career to watch over his progeny, Joey DeFrancesco, who by age 17 would start touring as a member of Miles Davis' band. But by the mid-'90s, with Joey grown and on his own, not only did Papa resume his nights behind the B3, he started recording again. Papa has made another trip to the Savant studio, not only with Joey, but with his guitar-playing scion, John, to boot. Together with tenor saxman Joe Fortunato and drummer Glenn Ferracone, they take an un-hackneyed program of nine tunes and add another notch in the belt of this B-3 icon.
