Dennis Rollins Velocity Trio
Dennis Rollins –trombone

Ross Stanley –Hammond organ

Pedro Segundo –drums

A trombone-led trio, with drums and Hammond –

certainly rare, maybe even unique! But Rollins'

searing performance, plus the funky ballistics of

grinding groove of Ross Stanley, delivers excitement

from the word go. A kaleidoscope of moods and

Wednesday November 30 Crucible Studio

John Taylor Trio
John Taylor – piano

Palle Daniellson – bass

Martin France – drums

More respected in Europe than in his home country

(he is currently professor of jazz piano at the

Cologne College of music), John Taylor is one of the

greatest musicians the UK has produced. A towering

genius of the piano and a brilliant composer, he

stands comparison with the late Bill Evans (and in

fact his 2003 trio featured Marc Johnson – Bill

Evan’s last bass player). Among living pianists

perhaps the appropriate comparison is with Keith

Jarrett and Brad Mehldau. In a welcome return to the Crucible

Studio he appears with his exciting new trio featuring

Palle Danielsson (bass), and Martin France (drums).

Expect to hear dazzling interplay, moments of sheer

beauty, and a rhythmic energy that will have you

bouncing off your seats!
