Joey DeFrancesco’s new album is entitled “Project Freedom”. It is his first work for Mack Avenue Records. The artist was inspired by many sources: Sam Cook’s soul (“A Change Is Gonna Come”), John Lennon’s poetry in the wonderful fragment of “Imagine (Prelude)”, John Rosamond Johnson’s spirituality in “Lift Every Voice and Sing”. Moreover, DeFrancesco deepens his work on trumpet, an instrument that has been fascinating him since the 80’s. DeFrancesco’s new band, The People, accompanying him in this project, is formed by Jason Brown on drums, Dan Wilson on guitar and Troy Roberts on sax.
