Biography


The Dom Minasi Trio came into world prominence with its’ recording of Takin’ The Duke Out. An outing that had diehard Ellington fans screaming and moaning, while modernists hailed Dom Minasi as the new savior of modern music.
With seasoned musicians, Ken Filiano of Vinny Golia fame and Jackson Krall a regular with Cecil Taylor, this amazing trio took the most over-played Ellington songs and brought them to places they had never been before. It caused one reviewer to say; “ What did Ellington do to deserve this? ” and yet another journalist wrote;” if Duke were alive today, he would be in the audience cheering them on.” David Adler penned Dom “a six string Cecil Taylor”, a title Dom wears with pride.
