Cape Town-born pianist/composer Philip 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. His quartet, which features the rising alto-saxophone star Sam Eagles, has been a major focus of his composing and playing, and their latest album Umoya is titled from the Zulu word for “life force”. It was played on BBC’s Jamie Cullum Show and Jazz FM praised its “very infectious feel-good quality”. From his home in Dorset Philip will be presenting his work in an intimate context, highlighting the wide variety of moods in the music, for this special solo HF20 live stream, his very first in this format.
