Trio Montuno is a Vibraphone/Bass/Percussion group that skillfully combines a unique blend of Jazz, Brazilian, and Afro-Caribbean music, (a music style commonly known as Latin-Jazz), resulting in a colorful and energetic new approach that has delighted audiences wherever they have performed. The group features Dana Sudborough on vibraphone and as a composer. The repertoire draws from original music to classics by composers such as: Antonio Carlos Jobim, Chucho Valdes, Egberto Gismonti, Chick Corea, Dizzy Gillespie, and Cal Tjader, among many others.
With their unique style Trio Montuno is dedicated and capable of setting the proper mood in a wide array of settings. When the audience wants to dance, Trio Montuno packs in a lot of rhythm for a trio. When the audience dictates quieter or more cerebral music, the trio’s instrumental ability and light volume fits the bill. The group is also committed to making Latin-Jazz more accessible to venues that cannot support a larger group either by space or economics.
