New Zealand saxophonist Roger Manins has produced an exceptional piece of work with Trio. Regarded as "an outstandingly gifted musician with a passionate sound, remarkable instrumental ability and total musical integrity", few would disagree that Roger is a blistering force in a new generation of highly talented jazz artists. He plays with a passionate, virtuosic, New York-inspired sensibility forged from a depth of tradition and tempered by an openness to change, and his music speaks with a tenderness and authority that will appeal to generations of jazz lovers.
Reuben Bradley and Mostyn Cole are two of the most exciting players of their generation, and this beautifully transparent recording shows them at their best. Trio is a stunner. Those familiar with Roger's no-holds-barred style are sure to savour every moment.
