Rob Clutton Trio

Counsel of Primaries (SnailBongBong)

Rob Clutton is a Toronto-based composer/performer who works in the intersections of composition and improvisation, in long-term projects in which the relationship of the musicians has a central but incalculable role. Rob’s impetus to play the bass comes from listening, allowing inspiration to reside in a sonic imaginary, in which the sound of the bass is the same as the tree singing is the same as the human listening.
DownBeat touted his latest recording, “Offering” with Tony Malaby as “expansive and sensitive in spirit.” “Counsel of Primaries” is the debut recording of the Rob Clutton Trio.
