He regularly performs for a wide range of private and corporate events at prestigious venues throughout London including One Aldwych, Grosvenor House, The Savoy and Dukes Hotel.
Clive performs in a trio of highly experienced jazz musicians. They are equally at home either performing a jazz programme (well-known standards or more contemporary jazz including original material), backing other artists or playing for background music designed to fit the brief of the engagement and at a volume to suit. Repertoire includes Jazz, Swing, Latin and Pop. If you require any specific music, it can be arranged for the trio in any particular style you wish.
