Product Description

Product Description

It's with immense pleasure that we present on Record Kicks the full-length album by TRIO VALORE, the new deep funk & mod jazz super group formed by:

STEVE WHITE - Joined The Style Council at the age of 17, and is considered by many to be the UK`s finest drummer of his generation, playing on 15 albums with the legendary Paul Weller. As a solo artist Steve has released 4 albums. As a sideman, he's been one of the founders of the Acid Jazz movement with Galliano and he played with The Young Disciples, JTQ and Working Week, through to New Orleans legend Dr John and the late great Ian Dury. Recognised as the youngest musician to perform at Live Aid in Wembley in 1985, Steve has performed at Live 8 aswell.

DAMON MINCHELLA - Formed Brit Pop heroes Ocean Colour Scene, going on to sell over 3million albums before leaving in 2004, has also been the first call bassist for Paul Weller for over 12 years. He has performed a with a whole host of other artists, including The Who, Dr John, Jimmy Page, Paul McCartney, Amy Winehouse and Carleen Anderson.

SEAMUS BEAGHEN -Seamus has played with a staggering list of artists including Iggy Pop, Morrissey, Supergrass, Babyshambles, Paul Weller, David Gray, Death In Vegas, Alabama 3, Madness, The Grid, Desmond Dekker, Barry Adamson and the legendary Tom Jones.

Together as TRIO VALORE they have a clear and precise message and it`s all about the groove. On their debut album expect 12 hot cuts full of floorshaking Hammond grooves, heavy deep funk & super dancefloor mod jazz. With hip covers of Amy Winehouse's Rehab, Jimmy Hendrix Fire and Stone's Paint it black alongside original compositions. On the album happeared also as special guests Benjamin Herman (New Cool Collective), Louk Boudesteijn & Jan Van Duikeren (Paul Weller).

Review

"One part Jimmy McGriff on Sue to three parts Soul Dressing-era Booker T and the MGs; a groovy Hammond driven rave up; the kind that would have had them jumping down the Flamingo. Fab stuff!"
-- Mojo Magazine

"Return of the Iron Monkey" is a record that unashamedly grooves, it pays tribute to the sound of the mighty Hammond and the great rhythm sections that inspired the band, a hint of the Meters, a slice of the MGs, and a whole lotta soul..." -- Modculture.co.uk

Had to buy this album after seeing the band live. The music is reminiscent of 60's funk style but brought up to date with some excellent arranging and strong musical performances. The Hammond organ really pushes through sometimes full on and gritty, sometimes underlying, to give a strong lead and the fusion-style of drums are the skeleton of the whole thing. The bass is a good solid layer of deep rhythm. I found myself playing it constantly in the car because it's unpretentious retro style is refreshingly uplifting and very toe-tapping. Which is far more musical and fun to listen to than many offerings I have heard these days. I think the album appeals across a wide range of ages because it is uncomplicated, and the pure musicianship on each track come right through - a style you will never get bored with. As a drummer rmyself I have picked up alot of things i can actually play myself! A must-see live outfit, but found out some time later they decided to call it a day.

Who would have thought that Steve White the drummer with The Style Council was such a fabulous jazz drummer! I've not stopped listening to this in my car. It's a play anywhere album designed to lift your mood. The cover of Paint It Black (Pinturas Negras) is a triumph! Highly recommended if you enjoy good music!

Return of the Power Trio 9 Nov 2011
By Christopher Kaigh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I've always been a fan of Steve White and when I saw he had done some trio work with Damonn and Seamus, I was intrigued. After the first listen, I was hooked. If you're looking for a weller-less,craddock-less treatment, Trio certainly is not that. Whitey,as always, is in top form and takes the boys through bouts of power, of strong musical precision and just plain pin you to the wall performances. Anyone who has heard Trio Valore with me reacts with " who is this? A new band? This is great." Sometimes "old" makes the best "new."
