“... a fresh spin on contemporary jazz.” – Good Times
Dillon Baiocchi, an alumnus of the Kuumbwa Jazz Honor Band, returns with his new project: The Neon Deon Express. Reflective of a new generation of jazz, the Express infuses elements of contemporary non-jazz artists – Bon Iver, Sigur Ros, Andrew Bird – with an olio of originals and jazz standards. Baiocchi is a graduate of New York's New School of Contemporary Jazz, and also a 2012 DownBeat Student Music Award. He cites Cannonball Adderley as a major influence. Like Adderley, Baiocchi believes music should maintain an element of fun along side its more serious objectives. The group features Baiocchi on keyboard, reeds, and vocals, Michael Glick (piano), Tyden Binsted (bass), and James Levine (drums).
