DeFrancesco has always been a singularly independent thinking artist. An artist who’s always been deeply connected to the full history of jazz. His innovative approach on this latest album, "The Key Of The Universe", highlights a devotional direction and who more fitting than a leading figure in the spiritual jazz era of the late 60s and early 70s than saxophonist, Pharoah Sanders. The inclusion of Billy Hart, who I might add played on Sanders’ album Karma in 1969 is effervescent.
