3alDente is a group made up of three seasoned Canarian musicians: Jonay Mesa, Carlos Pérez and Tomás LP Cruz. All three can boast an extraordinary & extensive career as professional musicians in very different categories that range from barroque music to current power jazz in the case of bassist Tomás LP, or from classic to jazz fusion, and even reggae & folk in guitarrist Jonay Mesa’s case, while the drummer/percussionist excellently handles just about any kind & style, from Brazilean music, for which he has a particular devotion, to avant-garde jazz-rock.
3alDente’s objective as a band is to obtain a sound full of nuances, colours, textures, musicality, virtuosity, freshness…, a musical laboratory based on conscientious and methodical work.
This group places its effort and conviction in the creation of a kind of music that stems from many sources, world music, a search for the organic, global & current, but never forgetting its roots.
In their own words, 3alDente makes a “Jazz Mestizo” (jazz mixed-brew)
