@ allmusic : The music of Joey DeFrancesco — an important force in the revival of the Hammond B-3 organ as a jazz instrument — runs the gamut from soul-jazz and bluesy grooves à la Jimmy Smith to hard bop to the more advanced modal style of Coltrane disciple Larry Young.
@last.fm : DeFrancesco listened and learned from the B3 masters, especially Jimmy Smith, to whom he pays homage in his 1999 High Note release, The Champ. In 2000 he recorded the album Incredible! with Smith.
