Philip Clouts Jazz Trio

alt

South African born pianist Philip Clouts, known for his work with his seven piece band 'Zubop', has developed a more intimate performance context with this trio, playing jazz standards, Latin jazz and original material.

Philip Clouts - Piano
Alex Keen - Double Bass
Sean Randle - Drums

Alex Keen works regularly on the jazz scene with names such as guitarist Jim Mullen, saxophonist Tim Whitehead and organist Mike Carr. Sean Randle plays the drums with Zubop, Gail Thompson and the North-African jazz fusion band Fantazia. They also play as a quartet with the addition of renowned F-IRE collective saxophonist Carlos Lopez-Real.

The mellow, melodic approach of the Philip Clouts Trio has been warmly received at many restaurants and wine bars in and around London, including the Archduke, Pizza Express, Cafe Med and at jazz venues such as The 606 Club, The Vortex, Farnham Maltings, The Royal Festival Hall and The Spitz Arts Centre.

Philip Clouts’ career has included playing at Ronnie Scotts, Birmingham Symphony Hall and Glastonbury and WOMAD festivals, and regular radio play on BBC Radio 3, Radio London, Radio Scotland and Jazz FM.

Press:

"It has a very infectious feel-good quality about it”" ~ Jazz FM
"There is one particularly affecting ballad, ‘For Eva’, and a charming ‘Nyasa Lullaby’. Clouts has particularly subtle judgement when it comes to harmonising simple melodies, making them neither too bare nor over-elaborate… A good debut in every respect." ~ Dave Gelly The Observer

"Energetic music…Alex Keen’s bass merrily swings along behind Clouts’ generous chords, throwing in neatly sonorous solos..an enjoyable, easy swinging debut." ~ Jazzwise

"An enormously enjoyable set of accessible but distinctive originals. Like the compositions, Clouts’ solos are thoughtful and persuasively structured, and its good to hear the many ways in which bassist Alex Keen and drummer Sean Randle contribute to the process" ~ Jazz UK
