DMP at Number 39

Phil Clouts Quartet

Thursday 19th October 2017 9pm

Once again we are very pleased to welcome back to Number 39 the very popular the Phil Clouts Quartet.


Cape Town-born Clouts' South African roots have inspired a voyage of discovery that has led to Phil 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.


Featuring rising star Samuel Eagles on saxophone, bassist Alex Keen and Yamaha Jazz Scholarship-winning drummer Dave Ingamells, Phil brings his musical journey alive with superb musicianship and infectious vigour.
