Sheffield’s experimental instrumental outfit King Capisce are extremely pleased to announce their return with long-awaited third album Memento Mori on Lamplight Social Records. Part of the new wave of pioneering UK Jazz cross-over bands, King Capisce‘s acclaimed sound is dynamic, full of energy and ideas. Their new album is their best yet and they’re home coming live shows are not to be missed.
“Frantically intelligent instrumental jazz” – Drowned In Sound
“It could easily have been them on the Mercury Prize shortlist. Maybe next year” – The Guardian
“An exciting cross-genre talent, fusing jazz with other influences to create a sound that is unmistakably their own” – BBC6 Music

Roller Trio is James Mainwaring, saxophone & electronics, Luke Wynter, guitar and Luke Reddin-Williams, drums. Their mix of high octane technicality and deceptively catchy tunes has transcended their Jazz heritage bringing them acclaim from fans and critics alike. Their eponymous debut album was nominated for the 2012 Mercury Prize and the band were also nominated for MOBO’s Best Jazz Act that same year. 2015 sees them release their highly anticipated follow-up ‘FRACTURE’
“Dark, menacing, bass heavy – the new sound of UK jazz” – Gilles Peterson, BBC Radio 6 Music
