Loz Speyer's Time Zone - a Cuban feast

Tickets for Loz Speyer's Time Zone - a Cuban feast at The Cinnamon Club

The band are  touring the new album “Clave Sin Embargo”. The third Time Zone album, released in October 2019, “Clave Sin Embargo” is a deep fusion of Cuban music and Jazz - soulful, catchy and rhythmically provocative.

“An ensemble led by a trumpeter/composer who has absorbed the essence of Cuban music and distilled it quite cunningly into an improvisatory context, with no compromise to either culture.” - Kevin Legendre, Echoes Music Magazine

This unusual crossover music was born more than 15 years ago when trumpeter Loz Speyer was living between London and Santiago de Cuba, studying and performing there with local musicians and delving into the roots of Cuban music – which then began to reappear transformed in his own music for Time Zone. Meanwhile his new family life swung between these two far removed worlds - the collision of which shows through in the compositions, played with passion and commitment by this fine band.  Time Zone really takes the audience on a journey of the heart.

“Speyer’s sound is forged from a unique personal perspective and his Anglo-Cuban musical hybrid offers something that is both exciting and musically satisfying. His writing is colourful and insightful and the playing by a hand picked sextet is excellent throughout.” 
- Ian Mann, the Jazz Mann

“A vibrant, rhythmically exciting exploration of Cuban music and wider jazz influences… Speyer’s music engages and makes you think – its global themes of movement, difference and change have never been more relevant.”
- John Adcock, Jazz Journal


Loz Speyer - trumpet, flugelhorn
Martin Hathaway - alto sax, bass clarinet
Phil Dawson – guitar
Dave Manington - double bass
Gaspar Sena - drums
Maurizio Ravalico – congas

“Speyer’s ear for the exultant horn harmonies of traditional Cuban dance music informs a probing crossover composer’s intelligence, in which time signatures are shuffled and idioms overlaid… Nobody writes world music quite like Loz Speyer, and he’s long deserved a bigger stage, and the resources to match.”
- John Fordham, the Guardian
