LP IS OF STOCK
TRIO VALORE is the new deep funk & mod jazz super group formed by Steve White (The Style Council / Paul Weller) on drums, Damon Minchella (Ocean Colour Scene / Paul Weller) on bass and Seamus Beaghen (who has shared stages with the likes of Iggy Pop and Tom Jones just to name a few) on hammond. Together as Trio Valore they have a clear and precise message and it`s all about the groove. On their debut album "Return Of The Iron Monkey" expect 12 hot cuts full of floor-shaking 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 penned by the band itself, this album is sure to get every discerning music fan sit up and take notice. Not to mention this album also includes appearances by special guests Benjamin Herman (New Cool Collective), Louk Boudesteijn & Jan Van Duikeren (Paul Weller band)!
" 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
"Slammin Hammond from Trio Valore – a really old school combo with a sweet mix of mod and funky rhythms! A number of cuts are covers, but there's also some great originals too – and the whole thing has the feel of a hip 60s set in a small Soho club – but filtered through a generation that also understands funk as well." - Dusty Groove America
