Fri 17 & Sat 18 May 2024 : Philip Clouts (jazz piano) & Ron Phelan (bass)

Philip Clouts and Ron Phelan at Tincleton Gallery

Pianist Philip Clouts and double bassist Ron Phelan will play a programme including music by Django Reinhardt, George Gershwin, Duke Ellington and Thelonious Monk, as well as Philip’s compositions of melodic jazz with flavours of African and Latin American music. Pianist Philip Clouts was born in Cape Town, South Africa, and brought up in London. Clouts was a founder member of worldbeat jazz band Zubop, with whom he composed music and played the piano, touring internationally and releasing five CDs. Performances included Ronnie Scott’s, Birmingham Symphony Hall, and the Womad and Glastonbury Festivals. More recently the Philip Clouts Quartet has been a major focus of his composing and playing, and the latest album ‘Umoya,’ is titled from the Zulu word for ‘life force’. It was played on BBC’s Jamie Cullum Show, and Jazz FM has praised it, saying “It has a very infectious feel-good quality about it.” Ron Phelan studied bass in Dublin before moving to the UK. He has worked with some of the best musicians and performers in the country touring both nationally and internationally in projects ranging from jazz ensembles to large scale theatrical productions. He currently lives in the South West of England where he divides his time between performing and composing. The duo setting at Tincleton Gallery provides an ideal opportunity for these performers to present their work in an intimate context, with the music covering a wide variety of moods.

Fri 15 & Sat 16 March 2024 : Mike Denham et al – jazz

Mike Denham

On Friday 15 March : “Clarinet Marmalade” – Following the success of last year’s performance, reeds player Trevor Whiting joins Mike Denham at the piano for an evening of duets. Trevor is one of the finest clarinettists on the UK jazz scene and, not surprisingly, he is first choice for several London-based ensembles. However, Trevor lives in Dorset and describes Tincleton Gallery as one of his favourite venues. Expect to hear this reflected in his playing as he and Mike explore the repertoire from Sidney Bechet to Benny Goodman, with several stops between.

Then on Sat 16 March : “Ragtime meets Boogie” – solos and duets. International blues and boogie woogie star Julian Phillips joins ragtime expert Mike Denham to explore these two remarkable, contrasting piano styles which emerged alongside one another in the early 20th Century. Julian has a great reputation for his wide and varied repertoire, playing in a truly authentic way. He appears at festivals around Europe and the USA alongside other top performers in the genre.
