Pieces, Vol. 1 - May 2012



The Luce Trio is a modern improvising group performing the music of Bach, Handel, and John Dowland along with Jon De Lucia’s original compositions. The instrumentation
of alto saxophone, electric guitar and acoustic bass gives the music a unique ethereal quality, and when combined with
astute improvisations, takes to it to a new level.
The band began in 2008 with a desire to play some of the classical repertoire in a context familiar to us as jazz musicians. After performing around the city we are happy to announce our upcoming CD release and New England Tour.
