With a style that organically blends Jazz to Rock to Funk, and Pop to Latin/Brazilian music, The Dig Trio has been keeping audiences astounded ever since their first performance in February/2000. Brazilian natives Gustavo Assis Brasil (guitar) and Mauricio Zottarelli (drums) met with New-Yorker David Pinto (bass) at the prestigious Berklee College of Music, where they were all studying at the time. The group rapidly developed into a cohesive and impressive power trio, mixing influences coming from several different musical styles to their masterfully written melodies and harmonies, all combined into a deep and profound groove. The result? Something simultaneously modern, unique, and sophisticated. The Dig Trio plays frequently in the New England area, and has been receiving high praises from both audiences and critics/experts alike. 'Dig Trio' (2003) is the group's first studio CD, and reflects it's incredible versatility and musicality. The album features twelve original compositions, showcasing the trio at it's best. Here is what some people have to say about the Dig Trio and the CD: 'Feast your ears! The Dig Trio offers up a truly special blend of jazz rock fusion music.

These are three superb musicians worth checking out!' Rod Morgenstein, legendary drummer 'Great CD! Strong grooves, beautiful compositions, and masterful improvisations fusing a wide range of elements including Rock, Funk, Latin, and Contemporary Jazz.
