'Papa' John DeFrancesco • Jumpin



Review by Scott Yanow
Papa John DeFrancesco, the father of organist Joey DeFrancesco, is a fine organist himself. The weakness to his otherwise enjoyable set is that the tunes (with the exception of the pop song "You Are So Beautiful") are all either blues or near-blues, generally taken at similar tempos. The sameness to the individual tunes is unfortunate (better planning should have gone into the date), but the playing is first-rate throughout. In addition to DeFrancesco, the large-toned tenor saxophonist Jacques Johnson is a major asset and John DeFrancesco Jr. is a fine guitarist. The music is solid soul-jazz with appealing grooves, but it is a pity that most of the songs do not stand out by themselves.
