Album Notes
New Zealand saxophonist Roger Manins is one of the most exciting & explosive saxophonists in Australasia. Having spent much of his career based in Sydney & New York, he has previously recorded with Mike Nock & James Muller.

A long awaited debut, HIP FLASK includes 8 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

“Firmly rooted in the jazz tradition, yet with an openness, to exploring fresh sounds, saxophonist Roger Manins is becoming increasingly recognised as an outstandingly gifted musician. His warmly passionate sounds, remarkable instrumental ability and total musical integrity guarantee a memorable listening experience.”
Mike Nock, Sydney Morning Herald

Manins currently lectures for the University of Auckland and regularly performs in Australia & New Zealand.
