The groove has a name: DELVON LAMARR ORGAN TRIO
, short: DLO3. The band around the Hammond B3 player plays their 60s/70s vintage soul with such an incredible power and joy of playing that you are inevitably carried away. With deep soul complemented by jazz, rhythm 'n' blues and rock, Lamarr and his bandmates create classic instrumental sound with an extremely fresh and virtuosic twist that goes straight to your legs. They released their debut album "Close But No Cigar" back in 2016 in the U.S. In July 2017, DLO3 was featured in the "Local Artist Spotlight" at Seattle's KEXP festival, followed by a live KEXP broadcast of their performance at the Upstream Music Festival, which garnered over 3 million views. With this, the Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio gained the attention of audiences around the world.Then, in March 2018, "Close But No Cigar" was released on the European market, followed by a first short tour of some European clubs. These performances by DLO3 created such enthusiasm among the audience that Delvon Lamarr & Co. are now logically returning to further spread their lush, refreshing sound.The trio, which will release the new CD in March 2020, has long since ceased to be an insider tip, but is about to take off!
James Carter (saxophone) | Gerard Gibbs (hammond B3) | Alex White (drums)
James Carter flexes his muscles as much as ever on his new live CD, his powerfully expressive solos literally explode in the direction of exstasy, he overblows, makes interval jumps and undertakes parforcerides that can only be mastered by extensive circular breathing - which he is a master of. Five compositions by the legendary Gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt serve as his source material.
These live recordings are not only of interest for all friends of excessive saxophone eruptions, but at least to the same extent for all Hammond B3 fans, because what Carter's long-time companion Gerard Gibbs lets loose on his organ doesn't need to shy away from comparisons with soul jazz titans like Jimmy Smith, "Brother" Jack McDuff, Dr. Lonnie Smith or Richard "Groove" Holmes in any way. The third member is the young drummer Alex White, who effortlessly drives the whole thing forward and holds it together with his powerful playing.
