About this event
Music Spoken Here are proud to present Resolution 88! If you like Herbie Hancock’s 70s work with the Headhunters, you’re going to love these guys! Band leader Tom O’Grady on Rhodes and synthesizers is joined by Tiago Coimbra on bass, Ric Elsworth on drums, Alex Hitchcock on tenor sax and Oli Blake on percussion.
With the release of their first three albums, live shows supporting Snarky Puppy, Roy Ayers, Marcus Miller, Stanley Clarke, Larry Mizell & the Blackbyrds, Butcher Brown, the Yellowjackets and a Lockdown Session live stream at Ronnie Scott’s last year, Resolution 88 have established themselves as one of the UK’s leading exponents of funk jazz. Their music is synonymous with the beautiful sound of the Fender Rhodes.
“Resolution 88 … this is an exciting young band from Cambridge who take their influence from the immensely important, barrier-breaking mid 70’s funk jazzer Herbie Hancock & the Headhunters – they’ve come out of nowhere at the last minute! There’s absolutely no-one around at all like these guys at the moment!” Craig Charles (The Craig Charles Funk and Soul Show)
