Big Dipper is the first album released by Drop Trio. The album debuted in 2003 and was self-released by the band. The 45 min record has been heralded by critics all around the world, and is a premier example of melodic funk jazz. Drop Trio formed in 2002, and immediately recorded two demos on their own, a 5 track EP titled "Little Dipper" and the all acoustic EP "Plonk" (both now out of print). Having already recorded 2 homegrown demos, Drop Trio went into SugarHill Recording Studios in early 2003 to record their first official record. This debut was dubbed "Big Dipper" and was produced by the band and SugarHill engineer John Griffin.
Drop Trio started in 2002 when keyboardist Ian Varley, who had just moved to Houston, answered a classified ad on JazzHouston. com posted by drummer Michael Blattel "seeking keyboardist for jazz/funk trio". They played together, and wrote 2 songs immediately. Blattel then contacted his friend, bassist Nino Batista, and asked him to jam with them. After learning those 2 songs from a rough recording of the session, Batista jammed with Blattel and Varley. Subsequently, the three formed Drop Trio in the fall of 2002
