Wednesday 18th October 2017

Philip Clouts

Cape Town-born Clouts’ South African roots have inspired a voyage of discovery that has led to him soaking up the joyful passion of Caribbean calypso, the soulful strains of the Indian subcontinent, 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. On this album, Clouts’ African inspirations extend beyond Cape jazz to Gnawa music and Afrobeat, and further topan-European folksong, soul-jazz and even drum ‘n’ bass

Samuel Eagles

When still in high school, Samuel  Eagles toured Europe and played in the Barga Jazz Festival with the Kingston Youth Big Band. He has since toured and been mentored by the top names in jazz and is currently leading his own quartet which performs regularly around London and the UK.

Alex Keen

Double bass player Alex Keen  works regularly on the jazz scene with names such as guitarist Jim Mullen, saxophonist Tim  Whitehead and organist Mike Carr.

Dave Ingamells

Yamaha Jazz Scholarship-winning drummer Dave Ingamells is a recent addition to the quartet who brings a fresh vitality and has a wide experience of playing with musicians such as Mike Gibbs and Nikki Iles
