Hailed as “dazzling” by the San Francisco Chronicle, Trio Dinicu combines the forces of three highly distinguished musicians. Luanne Homzy, a world-renowned concert violinist; Tommy Davy, a virtuoso guitarist of the young generation of Franco-Russian guitar; and Frank Anastasio, a legendary gypsy jazz bassist, vocalist, and guitarist.
Highly regarded for their creativity, Trio Dinicu blends acrobatic technique with the improvisatory language of jazz and the richness of Eastern European folk, including Romanian violin, Russian balalaika, and French ‘Jazz Hot’. Their music pays homage to the golden age of the Parisian-Russian cabaret. The Trio is named after the Romanian virtuoso violinist and composer Grigoras Ionica Dinicu, who influenced Jascha Heifetz and was admired by Stephane Grappelli, the world’s most famous jazz violinist. They have performed for audiences across the United States, Europe and Canada.
Their first album, Trio Dinicu: Live in Los Angeles (Hot Club Records) was released at DjangoFest Northwest in Washington in September 2013.
