Playing a set of original jazz pieces with inspirations from around the world, the Philip Clouts Quartet pay homage to the exuberance of some of the great pianist/composers including South Africans Abdullah Ibrahim and Chris McGregor, Caribbean virtuoso Michel Camilo, quirky New Orleans maestro Dr John, and the Gospel-infused greatness of Keith Jarrett.

Reviews of 'Umoya':

“Precise ebullience and relaxed funkiness” The Guardian

“A revelatory experience” UkVibe

“Clouts' compositions are strong and likeable. The quartet's playing is similarly engaging, a feeling of optimism pervading the tunes with a life force of its own” All About Jazz

“Compositionally strong with robust grooves…Clouts deserves to be better known, and Umoya speeds that direction of travel along nicely.” Stephen Graham

“…a life-affirming, musically-accomplished album” Adrian Pallant

“Eagles gets into the spirit of both Clouts’ cultural openness and feel for dance grooves with his snaking, whooping soprano sax... The rhythm section play with precise ebullience under Clouts’ electric keys…The township bounce of Umoya’s title track makes it a standout of the set, with the unpretentiously light-stepping delivery that has made this group a popular live-show draw.” The Guardian

“His writing sounds detailed and the themes are extended… there's a lot to enjoy here…" Jazzwise

“This melodic gem of an album is highly recommended.” Ian Mann
