Cover picture for the articleNoted organist Joey DeFrancesco will perform a concert on Friday, May 15 from the Van Gelder Studio in Englewood Cliffs, N.J., where he’ll play the historic organ that was featured on so many recordings for Blue Note and other labels. Among the organists who recorded with that particular Hammond C-3 (not, as is often reported, the more famous B-3 model) were Jimmy Smith, Larry Young, Ray Charles, Shirley Scott, Jack McDuff, Jimmy McGriff, Charles Earland, Dr. Lonnie Smith, and DeFrancesco himself when he was just a teenager—as heard, for example, on his 1990 album Where Were You?, which was engineered by Rudy Van Gelder.
