Jazz at The Poly: June

'Sunsplash' featuring Sarah McDonagh

Philip Clouts – piano
Sarah McDonagh – sax, flute
Alex Black – bass
Ashley James – drums

Born in Cape Town Philip Clouts  has loved South African jazz from childhood. The music has influenced his playing and composition and led to his part in developing a synthesis of the funky township music and European harmonies of his new life in Dorset. 

Clouts created a solid body of work with African roots – he has been a key member of the popular London-based world jazz ensemble Zubop and its offshoot Zubop Gambia, a collaboration with BBC World Music award winner Juldeh Camara. He has also played extensively with his self-named Philip Clouts Quartet.

"Hits an authentic groove and holds it, building successfully as Hugh Masakela or Abdullah Ibrahim’s bands do, underpinned with a rhythmic firmness and drive that carries everything forward with zest." - Alyn Shipton, Gramophone     

Emotionally-felt, highly listenable melodies and improvisations which colourfully lift the spirits” - Adrian Pallant

Precise ebullience and relaxed funkiness” – The Guardian
