Ben Wilcock and the Jelly Rolls: ‘Sneaky Weasel’

Ben Wilcock and the Jelly Rolls: ‘Sneaky Weasel’

Unlike its rounded predecessors ‘Sneaky Weasel’, the debut album from Wellington jazz trio ‘Ben Wilcock and The Jelly Rolls’, is the first (in NZ) to be released as an ultra-modern USB credit-card.

Sneaky Weasel will be released online August 1st 2014. The album launch party is to be held at The Black Sparrow August 14th 2014, 8pm

The ‘Sneaky Weasel’ USB credit-card album will take you back in time in futuristic fashion, with your choice of WAVs and MP3s, alongside a delectable garnish of liner notes; and toe-tapping compositional duties have been divvied up between the Hamiltronian B.Wilcock, and American buccaneers F.Waller, D.Ellington and C.Porter.

Alongside the Jelly Rolls on selected tracks appear celebrated kiwi musicians: Colin Hemmingsen (NZSO) on bass clarinet and Nick Tipping (The JAC) on double bass.

The Jelly Rolls are:
Ben Wilcock - Hamilton born, Stokes Valley resident who mixes Harlem Stride, Boogie Woogie and the influences of piano greats Errol Garner, Fats Waller and Ahmad Jamal. John Rae - hailing form Edinburgh, the Troubles’ drummer who draws on his worldwide experience from playing on over 40 albums. Dan Yeabsley - Wellingtonian bassist from the iconic Wellington jazz trio Twinset.
