CLEMENT REGERT'S "WILD CARD" with SPECIAL GUEST: LUNA COHEN
Founded by expat French guitarist Clement Regert, Wild Card describe their music as a “melting pot of musical ideas, fusing urban rhythms and grooves with a Latin attitude…dynamic, exuberant and flamboyant”. In addition to Clement, the group’s core members are organist Andy Noble and drummer Sophie Alloway, augmented by a rotating stable of first call musicians, including tonight’s Award-winning trumpet player Graeme Flowers (Manu Katche, Kyle Eastwood). In addition to leading Wild Card, Clement has appeared regularly with Grammy-winner Tim Garland, Natalie Williams and Liane Carroll. With two CD’s, “Organic Riot” and “Life Stories”, already to their name tonight Clement and Wild Card will be launching their latest album “Beast From The East” along with their very Special Guest, the quite brilliant Brazilian vocalist (and 606 favourite) Luna Cohen. So expect to hear their signature reworkings of classic rock songs with a jazzy twist plus a Latin/Brazilian feel in honour of their special guest, which Clement describes as "a mix of Afro-jazz, Hard-bop, Samba and raw funk". It's a testament to their growing popularity that they have 2 “Best Albums of the Week” a “Top 10 Album of the Year” and have already accrued over one million plays on Spotify to date!
