THE
ROOT DOWN

A searing funk, soul and boogaloo Hammond organ trio led by one of the UK's most rhythmic guitarists. Playing a mixture of rare classics from the 60's and 70's as well as a selection of thumping originals this outfit has one intention: to get you moving.


Phil Stevenson has emerged in recent years to be recognised as one of the UK's finest jazz guitarists. His understated, lyrical and hard groove style has been etched out from years of studying Brazilian music as well as the funk masters.


'...very, very funky indeed.' Jez Nelson - Jazz On 3, BBC Radio 3

shows coming up

"...a very tasteful mixture of tunes that will keep all of the audience interested. Drawing on influences like the Meters and Jimmy McGriff for his originals, Stevenson knows how to pay his respects and then add something new." London Jazz News
