Mod-A-Day: Trio Valore

This is a fairly new group, Trio Valore, who just started playing together and recording last year. But the combined experience of the members has got to be many, many decades. The mod, funk supergroup boasts Steve White (The Style Council) on drums, so you know that drums are going to be key. And it's got the hammond grooving of journey man organ player Seamus Beaghen so you know that there will be some serious gettin' down. And finally, on bass is Ocean Colour Scene's Damon Minchella, laying down some phat beats. The group blends jazz and soul into a really pitch perfect combination. This track was their first single last year and is a really heavy cover of Amy Winehouse's Rehab.
