"I bought my first vibraphone at the age of 24 (after a wasted youth being a very bad - not to mention unemployed - rock drummer) and played my first gig at the age of 28. I am completely self taught".  “..in full flight with two mallets in each hand, he gives the world's best vibes players a run for their money" - James Griffiths, Guardian. "Beaujolais' mix of firm emphasis and mellow tone, coupled with a shapely sense of improvised melody, gives much of it an unexpected richness and bounce; even a well-travelled standard such as You Don't Know What Love Is reveals haunting new turns, with a good deal of spin provided by the excellent pianist Robin Aspland" - John Fordham, The Guardian (reviewing Roger’s quintet CD ‘Sentimental').
