What Happened To Joey Defrancesco? Musician Death Tribute on Facebook
Twitter and Facebook announce the demise of Americal multi-instrumentalist Joey Defrancesco. He has passed away due to unforeseen circumstances, and fans can't help remembering his extraordinary contribution to the jazz world.
Warren Wolf tweets on Twitter, "Joey DeFrancesco, Gonna miss you, my friend. Nobody played that B3 like you!" He's even posted this on his Facebook account, where people are mourning the death in the comment section. One of them wrote, "Bro …I hope I’m reading you wrong …Joey Defrancesco is gone." Another one commented, "Wow, I really wish this wasn’t true, but I know you wouldn’t play around like that."
Apart from all the posts and tweets offering condolence to the musician, no one has actually mentioned the cause of his death. Further, the official announcement is yet to be made by the authentic sites.
When Joey secured an exclusive recording deal with Columbia Records, he was 16 years old. He released his debut record, All of Me, the following year. It has been claimed that his work on 'All of Me' was instrumental in reintroducing the organ to jazz compositions in the 1980s.
DeFrancesco traveled with Miles Davis and his band to Europe for a five-week concert tour that same year. He then contributed the keyboard to Miles Davis' 1989 album Amandla, which debuted at No. 1 on the Contemporary Jazz Albums chart.
Joey DeFrancesco Wife Gloria DeFrancesco
Joey DeFrancesco is survived by his wife, Gloria DeFrancesco. She is a musician herself but, most importantly, his manager. Every time media wanted to contact Mr. DeFrancesco, they had to first deal with Mrs. DeFrancesco.
The couple got married on July 24, 2011. On the occasion of their 10-year anniversary last year, he put out a lovely post for her that said, " I'm so blessed to know and be with this incredible woman! She's amazing in every way! Celebrating ten years of life is more than good; it's great.
In 2019, Philadelphia weekly interviewed both Joey and Gloria regarding their further plans.
It is an extremely difficult time for the family, hence the condolence messages do not forget the instrumentalist's better half.
Born in 1971 in Springfield, Pennsylvania, three generations of jazz musicians were present in his musically inclined family when he was born. He was given the name Joseph DeFrancesco in honor of his grandpa, a jazz musician who played the clarinet and saxophone.
His father, "Papa" John DeFrancesco, was a jazz organist who performed all over the country and was given the Living Legend Award by the Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame in 2013. DeFrancesco started playing the organ at the age of 4, and by the time he was five, he could perform songs by Jimmy Smith word for word.
From the age of 5, his father, John, started taking him to concerts and letting him watch sets.
