Freight Train: featuring Cathy Jordan, Liam Noble and Paul Clarvi

Cathy Jordan voice, bouzouki, bodhran, bones / Liam Noble piano, synthesiser / Paul Clarvis drums

An unlikely partnership – borne out of a remote lockdown session – that shines with genuine affection and joy. Cathy’s unswerving, folky purity is the perfect foil for Paul’s mischievous rhythms and Liam’s, provocative, spiky harmonies. The result is a spare, spellbinding set full of contrasts: familiar yet surprising, sparse yet alive, innocent yet worldly… music that stays in the mind long after its final notes have faded.

The majority of songs were chosen by Paul – show tunes, blues and popular songs rarely tackled in jazz – and trace his musical collaborations, from Leonard Bernstein to Moondog and Mose Allison.
