'Papa' John DeFrancesco
Desert Heat

As if the desert wasn't hot enough, here comes Papa John DeFrancesco blowing up the heat out west by insinuating himself into the bourgeoning Arizona jazz scene. There's more edge here, more daring, more spunk, than he's displayed on his previous releases. But there's every bit as much honest soul, clean playing and as much groove as always. As that TV chef might say, 'Papa' has "kicked it up a notch or two."

Featuring Joey DeFrancesco- keyboards; Tony Banda- bass; Ramon Banda- drums.

Tracks: Desert Heat; Pokuscabadabra; Cold Duck Time; I'll Close My Eyes; Tune 88; What Now My Love; House of the Rising Sun; Fields.
