Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio

January 22-26

Tickets

Sponsored by: Industrial Ally

Delivering an infectious blend of soul, jazz and rhythm & blues, the DELVON LAMARR ORGAN TRIO proves to be a band on the rise. Their tantalizing grooves, lush sounds and vibrant jam sessions are always fresh with improvisations strengthened by their undeniable chemistry. This Seattle based trio — Lamarr on B-3 organ, Jimmy James on guitar and Keith Laudieri on drums — evokes a classic instrumental sound with a pioneering, virtuosic sensibility all its own on debut LP Close But No Cigar. Featured on Seattle’s KEXP’s “Local Artist Spotlight” in July 2017 followed by a live performance at Upstream Music Festival broadcast by KEXP that has garnered over 5 million views, Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio has captured the attention of audiences around the world. The band put out their album independently in 2016 and Colemine Records gave it a wide release in March 2018 to critical acclaim.

 

Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio was formed in the Spring of 2015 with the help of Amy Novo, Delvon’s wife and band manager. She told her husband she would take over his music career and all he had to do was find the musicians, create and play music. They started with a weekly residency at The Royal Room in Seattle for the first year then self-released their debut album, playing short tours across the Pacific Northwest. Now they are headlining shows and spreading their contagious grooves with audiences across the globe. With Delvon’s soulful organ sound, Jimmy’s explosive guitar sound and Keith’s perfect pocket drumming, they have the impeccably unique blend of soul, jazz, rhythm & blues and rock & roll.


"The spontaneity of their groove-oriented tunes keeps it fresh and fun for the seasoned soul men who all have other endeavors"

"Their blend of soul and jazz is absolutely infectious"

1959: The Year that Changed Jazz

featuring author, Ashley Kahn

THIS EVENT IS A PART OF OUR WHITAKER JAZZ SPEAKS: PERFORMANCE & AUTHOR SERIES

The year 1959 was arguably the most creative year jazz had ever seen. As musicians began breaking away from BeBop and exploring new experimental forms, four albums were released that year that are now widely recognized as the most influential in history. Miles Davis’s Kind of Blue, Dave Brubeck’s Time Out, Charles Mingus’s Mingus Ah Um, and Ornette Coleman’s The Shape of Jazz to Come, represented new directions in music that influenced the course of jazz in every aspect. Author, Ashley Kahn, returns to Jazz St. Louis to explore this influential year in jazz, followed by an all-star performance, led by bassist Bob DeBoo.
