Blue-in-Green:PODCAST #118: Clement Regert of Wild Card

Welcome to Episode #118 of the Blue-in-Green:PODCAST which this week sees Imran connect with guitarist and founder of jazz trio, Wild Card, Clement Regert.

With a core trio comprised of Regert, Hammond organist Andrew Noble and Sophie Alloway on drums, the trio get set to unveil their sixth studio album.  Having initially played together in 2011 at a club where Regert hosted a residency, the chemistry proved undeniable and the trio have - thankfully - remained together ever since.

With the brand new Wild Card album release due at the end of this month, 'Cabin 19 Fever' serves as a reflection of the extensive quarantine period brought on by a certain worldwide pandemic - with the majority of the album written and recorded separately, the circumstances would go on to open the doors to working with collaborators both old and new including Marcus Strickland, Rosie Turton, Binker Golding and Maurice Brown amongst ten other sensational names.

Wild Card's blend of high energy, funk-filled and Latin-laced jazz is once again on full display on 'Cabin 19 Fever' - they've become a band that continually find ways to out do themselves and raise the bar with each release so check out the episode to hear Imran and Clement discuss the new album, its collaborators, quarantine life as a creative and as a touring musician.
