'A captivating versatile group of dynamic musicians with a repertoire that not only represents the organ trio genre, but a full spectrum of jazz and blues'. In 2006 Wayne De La Cruz (Hammond B-3), Kendrick Freeman (Drums) and Paul Branin (Tenor sax & Guitar), began pulling their collective ideas and energy together to create The Big Trio using each others diverse musical skills and backgrounds to play a repertoire that is equally as diverse. Their current CD 'Like Night' shows their dynamic ablity to perform range and styles from straight ahead jazz to soulful blues. This recording includes four of Wayne's original compositions along with tunes by Joe Henderson, Jerry Bergonzi, Fred Lacy, Dave Burns and Henry Glover. This recording for The Big Trio is just the first of great things to come.
