The Cloggz on Friday 25th May 2018
The band deftly combines virtuoso musicianship, nimble improvisation and intricate ensemble playing to produce imaginative re-workings of such composers as Ennio Morricone, Tom Waits, John Williams and Brad Mehldau stunning original compositions and live shows that include elements of circus, dance and visual projections.
Formed 5 years ago by Mark Edwards (Katie Melua, Dave Stewart, Paul Weller, Terry Callier, Carleen Anderson, Roddy Frame, Daryl Hall) The Cloggz have performed sell out shows at Brighton’s Emporium Theatre and The Old Market. They have also appeared at The Cheltenham Jazz Festival, Love Supreme Festival, Brighton Festival and The Other Palace, London.
The Debut album “Sawdust and Spangles” was released to rave reviews and reached number 5 in the iTunes Jazz chart.
It has also received much airplay on Radio shows such as Clare Teal’s Sunday show for BBC Radio 2.
“Engaging, wonderfully quirky, a coherent bridge between jazz and film music in a swaggering Kurt Weillish ambiance. One evocative mood after another”.
“You’ll be charmed, humoured, enticed and tickled! Music executed with accuracy, delicacy, emotional depth and energy”.
Julian Joseph BBC R3
“A wonderful mix of everything… ticks all the boxes for me… celebrating sounds and textures… I love the humour in it, the inventive nature in it… I can’t stop playing this album”
Clare Teal BBC Radio 2
When The Cloggz play it’s not so much a gig as a musical voyage. The result is mesmerizing
