About the concert:
Carrying on the infectious deep-pocket R&B of Booker T. and the greasy, funky, soul-jazz organ tradition of Charles Earland and Jimmy McGriff, Seattle-based organ king Delvon Lamarr brings his whip-crack trio for an evening of dance-inspiring party jams. Beginning his musical life as a drummer, Lamarr was inspired to pick up the Hammond at age 22 by the legends of the instrument and Seattle icon Joe Doria.
Building a trio around the explosive guitarist Jimmy James, Lamarr began a weekly residency at Seattle’s Royal Room and the band recorded its self-produced debut album, “Close But No Cigar,” before setting out as a tireless touring unit.
After signing with a major touring agent and inking a deal with Colemine Records, the band’s profile has exploded, leading to headlining dates and clubs and festivals around the world. Riding the wave from their boisterous 2021 sophomore Colemine release I Told You So, Lamarr, James, and hard-driving drummer Dan Weiss return to SFJAZZ, making their Miner Auditorium debut with music from their new album “Cold as Weiss” — a blistering collection of all new originals that finds the trio tighter, and funkier, than ever.
