Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio, also known as DLO3, is an American soul-jazz group founded in 2015. The band has released two albums. Their debut album titled Close But No Cigar charted at number one on the U.S. Contemporary Jazz Albums chart.
The band’s music is rhythm-based and rooted in the 1960s and 1970s soul-jazz, funk and blues styles, reminiscent of Booker T. & the M.G.’s. The songs are typically developed by improvisation over organ grooves. Bandleader Lamarr described it as “soul music with a strong jazz influence”. He credits their sound to the chemistry of the band members.
