Dennis Rollins

jazz // funk // fusion

I met Dennis Rollins last summer at the Edinburgh Fringe, after catching his phenomenal live show at the Baby Belly, deep in the South Bridge vaults. He has a beautiful enthusiasm about him, a real exuberance that gives away his love for what he does– and it comes out in his music, too, which is all smiles and energetic riffs. But he does soft and tender, too, and his cover of ‘Fast Car’ is as calm and thoughtful as you might expect.

A trombone virtuoso with a real flair.

    Sounds good man, probably not as energetic as a Maceo Parker would and probably sort of flat in a way but there’s some good stuff. Keep us informed about these funky brothers you manage to find.

    I haven’t heard this particular type of fusion, though I imagine that it is quite a bit easier than say, Jazz/electronica fusion which is something that i have heard of. I like the songs though. I’ll check out the cd.

    the sound of “Shake it down” is a lot like Bob Marley. I don´t know of which song, but it sounds like a cover. Is it?
