The Grammy nominated Clayton-Hamilton Jazz Orchestra captures the infectious fun of big band music from the Swing Era. Jazz Times called the Los Angeles band “one of current jazz’s most vital large ensembles.” Co-founder bassist John Clayton is a CSUN alumnus who went on to play with superstars such as Michael Jackson, Patti LaBelle, and Madonna.
