Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio Atwood's Takeover Night 2
After years of playing in bands that inevitably fell apart, as bands so often do, keyboard player Delvon Lamarr landed in a different kind of group: one founded by his wife and manager, Amy Novo. She created the Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio so her husband could fully focus on the things he does best: writing and playing music.
With a deep soul backbone augmented by jazz, rhythm & blues and rock n roll, the Seattle trio Lamarr on B-3 organ, Jimmy James on guitar and recent addition Keith Laudieri on drums evokes a classic instrumental sound with a fresh, virtuosic sensibility all its own on debut LP Close But No Cigar. The band put out the album independently in 2016.
The keyboardist and guitarist say they're constantly engaged in a game of name-that- tune, throwing in licks from obscure soul or rhythm & blues tunes and seeing where the other takes it.
Their chemistry stems from each musicians unique abilities. Lamarr holds down basslines on the organ that are so vivid that audience members sometimes ask where the bass player is. His left hand is second to none, James says. Hes got that, but hes also got this wild approach. He goes for it, and hes fearless about it.
Though James is more modest about his own abilities I mostly just go for what I feel, he says his bandmates complete the picture. When Jimmy joined the band, everybody who was a regular at that club said, Thats it: thats the band right there, Lamarr says.
