Rosetta Trio

Duration:
1 hour, 30 minutes
First broadcast:
Monday 17 March 2014

Warm melodic themes and Americana tones characterise the music of Stephan Crump's Rosetta Trio, where the bassist is joined by fellow stringsmen Liberty Ellman and Jamie Fox, both on guitars. Crump leads from the centre with an unfaltering sense of time and feel, shaping pieces through lilting bass grooves while his bandmates - Ellman on acoustic and Fox on electric - entwine beautiful lines and solos. Here in performance at London's Vortex jazz club, the group sound at their most intuitive.

Crump also joins Jez Nelson in the studio where he is put to the 'MP3 Shuffle' test, revealing an unexpected mix of listening pleasures and influences.
