An Evening of Jazz - with the Philip Clouts Trio
Led by Philip Clout who has played at Ronnie Scott's, Birmingham Symphony Hall, Glastonbury Festival and WOMAD Festival, with regular radio play on Jazz FM and the BBC including The Jamie Cullum Show.
The trio features Ben Taylor on double bass and Ted Carrasco on drums.
Clouts’ South African roots have inspired a voyage of discovery that has led to him soaking up the joyful passion of Caribbean calypso, the bluesy melodies of Middle Eastern praise songs, the exuberant sway of Cuban dance music and the tuneful essence of Gospel – while honouring jazz heroes including Bill Evans, Keith Jarrett, and Charles Lloyd.
As a key member of the popular London-based world jazz ensemble Zubop and its offshoot ZubopGambia (with BBC World Music award-winner Juldeh Camara), Clouts created a solid body of work with African roots and since moving to Dorset, he has responded to his new surroundings with impressionistic compositions that complement his world music interests, resonating with strong themes and packing a mighty rhythmical punch.
"It has a very infectious feel-good quality about it"
"Lively, intensely rhythmic piano"
