Roger Manins

New Zealand saxophonist Roger Manins has previously recorded with Mike Nock & James Muller. This is his debut album for Jazzgroove (originally released on Ode in New Zealand) and features Manins with his Hip Flask band. HIP FLASK includes 7 original tracks composed by Roger Manins.

“There is often an interesting correlation between the physicality of a musician and their sound and style. Roger Manins is a burly New Zealander who makes a big, bold sound on a tenor saxophone, and who smears thick, bright paint on his musical canvases. This recording was actually made back in 2001, when Manins was based in Sydney, and has the unusual instrumentation of Hammond organ (Stu Hunter), piano (Adam Ponting) bass (Brendan Clarke) and drums (Toby Hall). The twin keyboards make for a swirling, highly interactive backdrop for the groovy, bluesy originals, over which Manins surges and cruises by turns.” John Shand Limelight Magazine
