Multi-award-winning British-Jamaican jazz and funk star Dennis Rollins
is the hugely virtuosic trombonist seen and loved worldwide in the Maceo
Parker Band. The electric energy of his Velocity trio is palpable and
powerful Rollins harmonized horn spills into cinematic washes of
cymbals and growling organ on imaginative compositions raging from
straight-ahead jazz through funk and gospel riffs.
Major international exposure as a key member of the Maceo Parker band
since 2006, and previously with Courtney Pine, The Brand New Heavies,
Blur, and other top touring acts.
Winner of the 2006 BBC Jazz Best Band Award, Rollins is hugely popular
on the British scene due to his prior band Bad Bone. His talent warrants
major attention in the US, as heralded by liner notes from Willard Jenkins
of Open Sky Jazz.
Rarely can an instrumental trio have produced such a rich and varied tonal
range. --Evening Standard
