It's with immense pleasure that we present on Record Kicks the full-length album by Trio Valore, the new deep funk & mod jazz super group formed by:

STEVE WHITE - Joined The Style Council at the age of 17, and is considered by many to be the UK's finest drummer of his generation, playing on 15 albums with the legendary Paul Weller. As a solo artist Steve has released 4 albums. As a sideman, he's been one of the founders of the Acid Jazz movement with Galliano and he played with The Young Disciples, JTQ and Working Week, through to New Orleans legend Dr John and the late great Ian Dury. Recognised as the youngest musician to perform at Live Aid in Wembley in 1985, Steve has performed at Live 8 aswell.

DAMON MINCHELLA - Formed Brit Pop heroes Ocean Colour Scene, going on to sell over 3million albums before leaving in 2004, has also been the first call bassist for Paul Weller for over 12 years. He has performed a with a whole host of other artists, including The Who, Dr John, Jimmy Page, Paul McCartney, Amy Winehouse and Carleen Anderson.

SEAMUS BEAGHEN - Seamus has played with a staggering list of artists including Iggy Pop, Morrissey, Supergrass, Babyshambles, Paul Weller, David Gray, Death In Vegas, Alabama 3, Madness, The Grid, Desmond Dekker, Barry Adamson and the legendary Tom Jones.

Together as Trio Valore they have a clear and precise message and it's all about the groove. On their debut album expect 12 hot cuts full of floorshaking Hammond grooves, heavy deep funk & super dancefloor mod jazz. With hip covers of Amy Winehouse's "Rehab", Jimmy Hendrix' "Fire" and Rolling Stone's "Paint It Black" alongside original compositions. On the album appeared also as special guests Benjamin Herman (New Cool Collective), Louk Boudesteijn & Jan Van Duikeren (Paul Weller).

The album Trio Valore "Return Of The Iron Monkey" (Record Kicks) is going to be released October 10, 2008.
