Posted on 27 July 2011

MA Music James Mainwaring's band, Roller Trio, are releasing an album on the F-ire collective label

Roller trio, which formed part of James Mainwaring's MA degree at York, has been offered an album on the London-based jazz label F-ire Collective, coming out in Winter 2011.

They will also be playing at the Phoenix in York on October the 13th.

  • James Mainwaring - Sax/FX
  • Luke Wynter - Guitar
  • Luke Reddin-Williams - Drums

Roller trio met on the Leeds jazz scene in 2010 united in their love for freedom in improvisation. Taking influences from jazz, rock, reggae, hiphop and Indian music, they started composing together by recording free improvisations and then structuring the results into complete pieces. James comments, "What makes this band interesting is our ability to switch instrument roles, successfully accompanying each other [and] forming a trust that allows the players to have freedom to push the compositions to their limits."
