Three Step Manoeuvre are an organ trio of young musicians specialising in hard-grooving jazz funk music. They came together through a shared love of artists such as funk pioneers like James Brown and The Meters, jazz legends such as Jimmy Smith and John Scofield, and modern groups including Lettuce and Soulive. Formed in 2013, they released their debut EP in November 2014, and have since performed all over the UK, with gigs including Cheltenham Jazz Festival on the same bill as Gregory Porter, as well as a now legendary residency at the much-missed Yardbird Jazz Club in Birmingham.

"That quick picking, shuffle snare, drums and riding bass is a recipe that very few can get right, but Three Step Manoeuvre does it magnificently." Funkatopia, 20 Best Funk Albums of 2016

“Gives the organ trio a foot-to-the-floor remake that invites some serious dancing.” The Jazz Breakfast

November 2016 saw the release of their first full album, Three Step Strut.  Featuring special guests Gareth Lockrane (MOJO Magazine award winner, James Taylor Quartet) on flute and hotly-tipped vocalist Cherise Adams-Burnett (TROPE), it perfectly sums up their approach to funk music - grounded in an old-school sound, but fresh, fun and accessible to audiences everywhere.
