Drop Trio is a melody-driven funk jazz band from Houston, Texas. Their
solid musicianship and incredible energy on stage have been drawing
kudos across Houston and beyond. In the words of the Houston Press:
"Houston isn't the greatest city in the world for live jazz, but folks
like Drop Trio are out to change that. They don't really fit in with
the avant-garde, the martini sippers or the purists; they're more for
the young cats who like their jazz a bit funked up with lots of energy.
Drop Trio is anchored by a rhythm section tighter than the Texas
education budget and a Rhodes keyboard that gets pushed to its limits
on every cut."
Since their debut in fall 2002, Drop Trio has quickly gathered a loyal
Houston following. The trio tours regionally, playing packed rock and
jazz clubs, coffee shops and festivals. Feature articles in the Houston
Chronicle and nominations in the Houston Press Music Awards, only
months after the band's inception, have given the band broad exposure
and an exponentially growing fan base.
Drop Trio's music careens between styles, with feet squarely in the New
Orleans funk and Acid jazz camps, and nods to such diverse influences
as progressive rock, classical composition and electronica. Their sound
simultaneously appeals to the jazz sophisticate and the jam band
devotee, while their virtuosity earns them fans in unlikely camps. In a
recent appearance on Reprogram Radio, a hip hop and DJ showcase on KPFT
90.1, they earned the respect and appreciation of the local DJ scene
as one DJ, put it, their music is "top-notch stuff."
