Cleon Barraclough to bring the jazz to The Workshop
AFTER their national tour of premiere jazz clubs in early 2015, composer and pianist Cleon Barraclough reunites with Sacha K on drums to perform songs off their debut album Techni-colour Rain.
Joined by the consummate P.W. Farrell on electric bass, the trio's music is inspired by salsa, timba, funk and contemporary jazz. Cleon, PW Farrell and Sacha K bring intricate Afro-Cuban grooves and jazz improvisation skills to audiences through their diverse musical experiences.
Cleon was composer, performer and producer for his 2011 album Globalectic, which was noted in reviews for its "progressive and adventurous" merging of genres.
Sacha K holds the drum chair for Afro-Cuban ensemble Chukale.
His many collaborations with artists from diverse musical backgrounds reflect the knowledge and capability he brings to the project. Electric Bassist PW Farrell has performed internationally and his first solo release was reviewed as "one of the best albums of the year."
