"...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 the UK jazz, funk and pop as an ‘impossibly virtuosic’ sideman to such stars such as Maceo Parker, Pee Wee Ellis, 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 amongst 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 Joel Barford. It’s clear that this is one of Rollins’ strongest musical statements yet.
