As he’s made abundantly clear over the past 30 years, Joey DeFrancesco has plenty of soul. What most listeners probably haven’t spent much time pondering is that soul’s place in the universe. Joey D calls upon disciples and missionaries of jazz to join him in paving the way to enlightenment
Joey DeFrancesco moves into Sixties spirituality on his new album. ★★★☆ For much of his 30-year career the American organist Joey DeFrancesco has frolicked in the flashy footsteps of Jimmy Smith. Yet on his recent albums he has diversified: into political philosophising on Project Freedom, then the Georgie Fame role on a Van Morrison session and now Sixties spirituality. You can’t doubt his sincerity: on three tracks he is joined by the post-Coltrane icon Pharoah Sanders. It’s something of a coup to have Sanders, who rarely performs these days

Jazz Organ Master Joey DeFrancesco Collaborates with Pharoah Sanders with 'In the Key of the Universe'. If the whole album were like this, well, it would be a beautiful slice of what DeFrancesco has been offering listeners for many years: Hammond B3 playing for a new century. But In the Key of the Universe offers something more. Sanders appears on three tracks on In the Key of the Universe. Sanders doesn't outplay Roberts on the saxophone but he brings a gravity to each of these tracks that places them on a different plane.
