(2003) Dig Trio
Gustavo Assis Brasil (guitars) * David Pinto (bass) * Mauricio Zottarelli (drums, percussion)
Special Guest: Garo Saraydarian (trombone on #6 and #9)
With a style that organically blends Jazz to Rock to Funk, and Pop to Latin/Brazilian music, The Dig Trio has kept audiences astounded ever since their first performance in February/2000.
Brazilian natives Gustavo Assis Brasil (guitar) and Mauricio Zottarelli (drums) met with New-Yorker David Pinto (bass) at the prestigious Berklee College of Music, where they were all studying at the time. The group rapidly developed into a cohesive and impressive power trio, mixing influences coming from several different musical styles to their masterfully written melodies and harmonies, all combined into a deep and profound groove. The result? Something simultaneously modern, unique, and sophisticated.
The group’s album, “Dig Trio”, was released in 2003, and reflects both the group’s versatility and musicality. The CD features twelve original compositions, showcasing the trio at its best. The album features guest artist Garo Saraydarian on two tracks.
