“The adjectives funk, soul, jazz, and even psychedelic, appear in almost every review tagging the three piece approach. Regardless of the repetition, all are accurate descriptions trying to move the reader closer to the deep, often intense groove these guys effortlessly craft on the album and especially live,” says AMERICAN SONGWRITER (review of DLO3 new album Cold As Weiss).
DELVON LAMARR ORGAN TRIO - or as it is sometimes referred to, DLO3 - specialize in the lost art of "feel good music". The ingredients of this intoxicating cocktail include a big helping of the 1960's organ jazz stylings of Jimmy Smith and Baby Face Willette; a pinch of the snappy soul strut of Booker T. & The M.G.'s and The Meters; and sprinkles Motown, Stax Records, Blues, and cosmic Jimi Hendrix-style guitar. DLO3 is a soul-jazz concoction that goes straight to your heart and head makes your body break out in a sweat. Live, the band's fiery and intuitive chemistry is unstoppable, brimming with improvisation, instant composition, imaginative takes on classic tunes, and a booty-shaking back catalog of soulful gems. "The unrelenting, intoxicating grooves of The Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio are everything one would want from an organ trio - a pinch of late 60s, some elements of more modern funk, and a riveting, magnetic swagger that won't let go," raves GLIDE MAGAZINE.
