Dennis Rollins’ Velocity Trio
Dennis Rollins MBE – trombone | Pedro Segundo – drums | Ross Stanley – organ
“…rarely can an instrumental trio have produced such a rich and varied tonal range” – London Evening Standard
For 25 years trombonist Dennis Rollins has played at the forefront of UK jazz, funk and pop as an ‘impossibly virtuosic’ sideman to such stars such as Maceo Parker, Courtney Pine, The Brand New Heavies, Blur, Monty Alexander and as an award-winning leader in his own right.
A previous winner of the BBC Jazz ‘Best Band’ Award, the Parliamentary Jazz ‘Education’ Award; Ronnie Scott’s ‘Best Trombone’ Award and many others, Rollins’ latest ensemble is the Velocity Trio, a brilliant marriage of refined contemporary jazz arrangements with simmering grooves that appeals to multiple generations of jazz, funk and world music fans.
Featuring Hammond organ virtuoso Ross Stanley and fiery drummer Pedro Segundo, their unique trombone-Hammond organ-drums line-up honours the jazz tradition while at the same time pushing it forward.
The ‘electric’ energy of the group also covers a wide area, ranging from atmospheric ethereal melodies from Rollins’ harmonised horn to straight-ahead jazz and groove. It’s clear that this is one of Rollins’ strongest musical statements yet
Tonight see’s the trio re-inventing compositions from their 2 acclaimed album releases ‘The 11th Gate’ and ‘Symbiosis’
“As a trio we’ve drawn our collective influences to pen what we feel is an exciting and progressive set. Combing crazy time shifts with infectious groove, we aim to take the listener on a ‘roller-coaster’ musical journey” – Dennis Rollins MBE
