One of the greatest jazz organists of all time, Joey DeFrancesco has always been proud of his Italian heritage.

Teamed with two fellow American jazzmen of Italian descent, DeFrancesco has a great time swinging hard on the catchy Italian tune “Mala Femmina.”

Guitarist Frank Vignola’s facial expressions during DeFrancesco’s virtuosic solo are memorable as is his own joyful solo during the fun performance.
