Dusty York Trio

Recently releasing his third CD, “Cinema 57”, Portland saxophonist/composer Dusty York, (Oct. 15, 1978), has been a unique voice in today's NW jazz scene with his warm, distinct sound, and uncompromising individuality. Playing all original compositions and performing frequently with his father, tenor saxophone virtuoso Michael York, Dusty York Trio has provided his own sound amongst the wealth of jazz talent that Portland has to offer. He has developed an improvising style that has departed from the conventional bebop/blues based standard, with a stronger emphasis on rhythm, unique phrasing, extended thematic and dynamic development, and at times... less notes. His working band features Justin Durrie on bass, and Russ Kleiner or Ji Tanzer on drums. In 2004 they released their debut recording “June Diva”, and in 2005 they released “A State Of Secession Volume One”, which features Michael York on tenor and spawned Dusty's record label, Diatic Records.
