Dennis Rollins

Born in Birmingham, England in 1964 of Jamaican parents, Dennis cut his teeth at the age of 14 studying and performing with The Doncaster Youth Jazz Association. After years of concentrated study Dennis moved to London where his unique approach to the instrument was immediately and appreciatively recognised resulting in numerous offers of work

In the ensuing years Dennis further honed his formidable talent performing with the National Youth Jazz Orchestra (NYJO) and the legendary all-black jazz big band, The Jazz Warriors.
