23 August Wednesday – Tim Rollinson Band
Wednesday 23 August, 8.30pm
Join us for the follow-up gig to last years’ album launch at Foundry616 of Nitty Gritty by guitarist Tim Rollinson.
Over the years, Tim Rollinson has been associated with some outstanding recording projects, not only with the band DIG (Directions In Groove) but with his own ensembles such as The Modern Congress. Tim was not only a foundation member of the highly successful DIG but has played with artists and groups such as Vince Jones, The Black-Eyed Susans, Eon Beats – as well as leading his own jazz trio.
His latest album Nitty Gritty features ten funky and groove laden tracks which explore Tim’s love of a diverse range of music styles , both old school and contemporary, from funk, soul, reggae and world sounds, delivered with a real analogue feel that embraces instruments such as the Fender Rhodes and Hammond organ – the perfect bed for Tim’s overlaying guitar artistry.
For this recording and live performance, Tim has assembled an all star group which features fellow DIG luminary Alex Hewetson on bass, drummer Nic Cecire and young keyboard wiz Shannon Stitt.
“Guitarist Tim Rollinson‘s approach – that of taste, space and minimum waste – is one of the joys of anything he puts out into the world: whether it be the Acid-House of D.I.G. (Directions in Groove) or, more recently, the exquisitely urban-nocturnal Modern Congress, or all points between. Rollinson’s new album – Nitty Gritty – keeps that chill ethos to the fore across ten tracks that conjure old-school/nu-school grooves paying homage to all that is chilled and tasty”.
