There is one particularly affecting ballad, ‘For Eva’, and a charming ‘Nyasa Lullaby’. Clouts has particularly subtle judgement when it comes to harmonising simple melodies, making them neither too bare nor over-elaborate… A good debut in every respect.” Dave Gelly The Observer

"Energetic music…an enjoyable, easy swinging debut.” Jazzwise

"An enormously enjoyable set of accessible but distinctive the compositions, Clouts’ solos are thoughtful and persuasively structured." Jazz UK
