WorldService Project

London, United Kingdom

Interesting noises continue to flow from the UK jazz scene, and latest to take up the creative baton are the exhilarating WorldService Project (WSP). Pianist Dave Morecroft leads this distorted quintet with a missionary zeal, and his Match & Fuse side project will link WSP with similarly minded young bands across Europe in the coming year. Raucous, muscular and groovy, there is a playful aesthetic at work here that oscillates between the conventions of formal composition and outright grunginess. Saxophonist Tim Ower, trombonist Raph Clarkson, bassist Conor Chaplin and drummer Neil Blandford are the co-passengers on this wild, punchy ride. Volatile substance, handle with care.
