Jon De Lucia is a Brooklyn based saxophonist and composer. Originally from Quincy, MA, Jon has become an integral part of the New York scene. Predominantly a student of jazz, he also has a deep interest in the folkloric music and instruments of Cuba, Japan, Ireland and Italy, having performed on a variety of ethnic flutes, drums and stringed instruments. Jon has led his groups and played as a sideman in Boston, New York and all over Japan with such musicians as Tommy Crane, David Tronzo, Bob Moses, Bob Gullotti, John Lockwood and Thomas Morgan among others. He leads the Jon De Lucia Group, and the baroque improvising Luce Trio. He continues to compose, perform and teach privately in New York City.
Composer & jazz sax-er Jon De Lucia is a soul on a mission!! He & his totally
committed sextet wash us viably with his vision of how he views original
music. The result is a player who is perfectly at home creating blues, bebop,
free jazz, fusion, probably even the classical idiom. I sense that Jon is one of
those artist…..A visionary & true artist constantly searching & growing as he
plies his trade. With his highly original approach to this art-form, De Lucia is
one of those comprehensively gifted musical craftsmen with flawless
technique, plus an abundance of compositional ideas.
