RESOLUTION 88 was started in 2012 as an original funk jazz project. Tom O'Grady was inspired by instrumental bands such as Herbie Hancock & The Headhunters and Kaidi Tatham, as well as having his heart set on centring the band around the sound of a suitcase Rhodes and other classic vintage keyboards. Their first ever performance featured on ITV News (East Anglia) and they have since supported the Grammy Award winning Snarky Puppy to a sell-out crowd at the Village Underground, Medeski Martin & Wood at Under the Bridge, as well as playing at prestigious nights such as Jazz Re:freshed at Mau Mau Bar (Jose James, Soweto Kinch etc) and The Jazz Meet at Floripa. Their début album (released in January 2014) was mixed by Dan Goldman aka JD73 (Morcheeba) and was mastered in New York by Bob Power (Erykah Badu, The Roots, Common, D'Angelo, ATCQ etc). It has received plenty of airplay around the world already; most notably Craig Charles' Funk & Soul Show on BBC Radio 6 and Jazz FM (both multiple times), along with their most recent release, 'Press Play' (a 3-track EP released in October 2014). Kaidi Tatham also produced a remix of the Resolution 88 track ('Broken Beat') that was inspired by his band and it was put out on limited edition 45rpm 12" backed with the original track - this remix has also had plenty of radio play. 2015 has already seen them touring in cities such as Oxford and Leeds and start work on new material for their next release. They played to a completely sold-out Pizza Express in Soho on April 2nd in advance of this double bill with Kaidi Tatham at Ronnie Scott's.
