China Tour with Wenhai Wang!

DAT would like to Announce that we will be collaborating on an upcoming recording and tour of China with noted Opera Singer and Composer Wenhai Wang!

We are incredibly blessed to have Wenhai as a friend and we are very excited to share what we're working on together.

In addition to being a stunning vocal and dramatic talent - Wenhai has been an educator and worked in composing and producing for both Television and Film. We will be blending our original DAT sound with Wenhai's Soaring Vocals to produce some great new music that will touch on influences from heritage jazz pieces, traditional Chinese pieces, film compositions and our original and unique musical vision as an artistic concord.

We will be playing several dates mostly in Shanghai and will be heading into the studio in the upcoming months to record a CD that will be released towards the end of 2014 - stay tuned for how to get an invite to our CD release event in Shanghai!

We will be announcing more about the specific dates and venues and thanking our sponsors in the upcoming months as things are finalized.

Thanks again to our friends, family and fans who have been so grateful and generous with their time and patience and love over the past several months as we've been booked solid with meetings and rehearsals and trips...we love and appreciate you and could NOT do this without you!

Connie Gotsch Educational Jazz Tour - 2013

The Delbert Anderson Trio is VERY proud to announce that we've been awarded a grant from The Connie Gotsch Foundation.

The DAT is planning an educational focused tour that includes several performances and clinics around New Mexico schools and cumulating in a performance at a larger local venue that would highlight several local jazz artists and music students.

Connie Gotsch was an award-winning author, educator, broadcast director, adventurer and photographer. Above all, Connie was a promoter of the arts. She passed away in July 2012 after a seven month battle with cancer, but not before dedicating her estate to the advancement of the arts in San Juan County. The Connie Gotsch Arts Foundation was established with the purpose of continuing Connie’s legacy by offering scholarships, grants and other means of support to the many forms of art in our area. http://www.cgartsfoundation.com/

We couldn't be more excited or grateful for the opportunity to share our music and hopefully inspire some future musicians in our area!
