From Delbert Anderson Trio
Born in the deserts of the Southwest United States - The Delbert Anderson Trio provides a funky and contemporary take on Traditional Melodies and while still swinging away on the Modern Masters. Delbert Anderson, Nicholas Lucero and Mike McCluhan were oddities in their small community – all talented jazz musicians with international touring and playing experience.
Consummate sideman for artists including Ernie Watts, Terence Blanchard, Kevin Eubanks, Bobby Watson, T.S. Monk, Neena Freelong, Greg Abate and many others – DAT decided to get together and experiment with their unconventional instrumentation and influences. DAT knew it had something unique pulling from each individual members musicianship and being inspired by Delbert’s Navajo Upbringing. Fusing their unique jazz, funk and traditional Native American elements - DAT has performed and built a devoted audience across the United States. In late 2013 and early 2014 DAT has reached an international audience through collaborations and performances with with Mongolian Throat Singer Baatarjav Tsogt, Canadian Singer-Songwriter Candace Curr and Canadian classical singer Rhonda Head.
Currently set to release a live recording entitled "Manitou" - DAT continues to honor Anderson's musical and cultural heritage while consistently pushing what it means to be a jazz trio with progressive attitude and contemporary sound to create music that is emotionally compelling, rhythmically rich and melodically satisfying.
