The Mercury Program is an American musical group composed of Dave Lebleu on drums, Sander Travisano on bass guitar, Tom Reno on guitar, and Whit Travisano on vibraphone and piano. They are based in Gainesville, FL. The first three members formed a trio in August 1997 and Whit Travisano joined in late 1999. The band members live in different cities across the United States.
For over a decade, Gainesville-based The Mercury Program have been releasing their own brand of groove-led instrumental jazz-rock. Chez Viking, released in 2009, takes all of these past albums and puts out a solid, cohesive representation of their distinctive sound. The most characteristic and recognizable aspect of this sound are the vibes and piano. Arrived/Departed" and the title track are great examples of this. The rhythm section is more or less the focal point of this album. The drums and rolling bass guitar lock together in pulsing, quirky, and off-kilter timings and offer an exciting counterpoint to the mostly constant guitar and sparce piano. Backseat Burnout" and "Stand and Sing" showcase this talent.
