John Clayton Jazz
JAZZ IN THE PINES
Graham Dechter Quartet feat. John Clayton, Jeff Hamilton & Tamir HendelmanJazz in the Pines
An accomplished guitarist, composer, and arranger, Idyllwild Arts Academy alum Graham Dechter plays with the kind of swinging authority and seasoned maturity that belies his youth. The Los Angeles native shows a deep reverence for the jazz guitar tradition in his warm-toned renditions of ballads, bossas, bebop, and blues. A formidable soloist and consummate accompanist, he imbues standards with rare enthusiasm and an inherent bluesiness while carving his own path with affecting original compositions.

Idyllwild Arts proudly presents the 25th annual Jazz in the Pines this August 10th, 11th and 12th, featuring over two dozen bands. Performers and fans of jazz, blues, and R&B have a breathtaking mountain campus to themselves after the departure of the Idyllwild Arts Summer Program’s thousands of arts-lovers and before the first semester of the Foundation’s residential high school, Idyllwild Arts Academy.

All proceeds from the festival benefit Idyllwild Arts. Our mission is changing lives through the transformative power of art. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit.
