Dennis Rollins Velocity Trio
SATURDAY 28TH JUNE 2014
*subject to licence
Virtuoso trombonist Dennis Rollins has performed at the forefront of UK jazz, funk and pop for 25 years, sharing the stage with such stars as Maceo Parker and Courtney Pine and leading his own award winning jazz/funk outfit BadBone & Co.
His acclaimed new band Dennis Rollins Velocity Trio mixes sophisticated contemporary jazz arrangements with simmering funk grooves.
There is a synergistic energy in this unique trombone, Hammond organ, drums line up - combining Dennis' expressive performance with the funky ballistics of Portuguese drummer Pedro Segundo and Ross Stanley’s grinding Hammond groove. There’s room for funk groove in tunes such as the Latin pulsed Samba Galactica, but there’s also shifts in tempo allowing for seductive slower interludes, subtle melodies and voicelike solos.
