'Comprised of electronics/tenor saxophonist James Mainwaring, guitarist Luke Wynter and drummer Luke Reddin-Williams Roller Trio mix epic rock-edged riffs, angular sax explorations, brooding beats and haunting dub-step style electronics all shot through with heady improvisation.' Mike Flynn, (Jazzwise Magazine)'

Is there no end to the production line of gifted young musicians? Virtuoso stuff, not for the faint-hearted. A gig for the fearless.' Russel (Bebop Spoken Here)

'Roller Trio's sound is as far from the 'ting-tata-ting' typical school of jazz as they can reach. Soaring sax over buzzsaw guitar riffs built on layers of looped melody and angular drumbeats have melded to create a sound that James Mainwaring, guitarist Luke Wynter and drummer Luke Reddin-Williams truly own.' John Carlon, Livenotes, YLMP.

'I went to watch a band in Leeds and these guys played afterwards - we missed our train back to Dewsbury and had to pay £25 taxi because we were gobsmacked and didn't want to leave. Booked them for our club and to be brutally honest they came over and lifted the roof off the place. I have NEVER seen a jazz act appeal so vehemently to a non-jazz audience in my life. These guys are turning ordinary people into jazz enthusiasts and deserve some major credit for doing so. They are the modern ambassadors of Jazz." Jason Batley, (Dewsbury and Saville)

'My new favourite band of 2012... Killing'. Adam Moses (Jazz Refreshed)

  2. Friday night was music night. Superb Tony Bennet concert on TV. Then down to Dewsbury and Saville Cricket Club to see Chris Martin, Scott Wainwright and Lisa Marie Glover, who were entertaining as always. But the headline act was The Roller Trio. Complex and atmospheric 'modern jazz' (I hate to categorise this sort of music) with some very tight phrasing and odd time signature work. So if you are into that sort of thing and appeciate great musicianship, go see The Roller Trio. Highly recommended.
