About Three Chord Molly...
"From the first tune, with its sassy drum figure, insistently grooving bass line and felicitous Cedar Waltonish melody, the Russo Alberts Trio establishes its modus operandi: swing fiercely, listen closely, and invest each note with soul." ~ Andrew Gilbert, San Jose Mercury News

About Russo Alberts Trio
"Most excuses for wanting out of the trio are centered around "me." There is no "me" in the trio. That is exactly what makes it stand apart from most contemporary bands. The Bay Area based, Alberts/Russo Trio, is the real deal. As in the profiles of outstanding trios from the past, the trio is their choice and their passion. You will hear the history of this small unit form in tact. They are adventurous harmonic-ally, the melodies are original, they swing, and they are entertaining." ~ Sonny Buxton, KCSM Radio

Don Russo - Bass
Don Russo has paid far more than the usual dues in his journey as a Jazz Bassist. Music has always been his life’s quest, from his first vocal stage performances at the age of 5 and his first stint in a band as a guitarist at age 10 through his permanent connection with the bass, formed at age 18. His major influences include Percy Heath, Charles Mingus, Scott Lafaro, Ron Carter, and Charlie Haden.

Don Alberts - Piano
Don Alberts grew up playing in the San Francisco jazz clubs which exposed him to the challenging music of Miles Davis, John Coltrane and Bud Powell. Much of this music became his foundation and a style rooted deeply in bebop and the blues. The romantic side of his playing comes from the influence of pianist Bill Evans.

Art Lewis - Drums
Born in New Orleans, Art Lewis began his career in San Francisco, where he studied under Philly Joe Jones. He played at many local clubs, including Jimbo’s Famous Bop City, which was the major club at the time. He moved to New York in 1968 and played with many of the more prominent modern jazz players at clubs like the Village Vanguard, Slug’s, Ali’s Alley, The Tin Palace, The Public Theater, Jazz Workshop, and more.
