WorldService Project (WSP) are a quintet who formed in 2008 largely playing themusic of pianist and composer Dave Morecroft.
WSP combine lyricism with a burning intensity, manipulating driving structures into asound-world of unruly progressions and flowing melodic phrases.
WSP create edgy and experimental music with a smile on its face.
WSP Consists of Tim Ower (Saxophones), Raphael Clarkson (Trombone), Dave Morecroft (Piano/Keys), Conor Chaplin (Bass) and Neil Blandford (Drums).
WSP appeared at Bath Music Festival earlier this year and released their second EP at The Vortex jazz club in August.
They are set to play at a number of venues up and down the country in October 2009 and have been booked for a number of festivals in 2010 including the Isle of Wight International Jazz Festival.

“WSP blend tricksy modern themes with biting funk, high energy and virtuosic soloingon top” Time Out, London
“Dave Morecroft...is both an engaging spokesperson and a skilled pianist/composer,and it is his intriguing funk tunes...that immediately impress for their sheer multitextured originality, but whether they’re playing these or trombonist Raphael
Clarkson’s more conventional straightahead jazz pieces - or even, on occasion,playing slow-building arrangements of rock-based fare, such as David Bowie’s plaintively melodic ‘Is There Life on Mars?’ they address everything with enough brio to take the audience with them, and in saxophonist Tim Ower they have a useful soloist, with a rich tenor sound and an affecting agility on soprano." Chris Parker, Vortex
"...the Project’s jazz theory is underpinned by gritty funk elements that produce adistinctive musical flow. And it really works...with great rhythmic hooks and intertwining lead work...creates a sumptuous aura about the group." www.spoonfed.co.uk
“This is top class jazz based stuff….a breath of fresh air”LiNK, Yorkshire Cultural Foundation
“This was a tight set performed with considerable skill...clever, accessible jazz...theseyoung men deserve to go far.” The Alton Herald, Hampshire
