Keeping it in the family, two generations of jazz mastery unite on the Miner stage for this exclusive live concert by GRAMMY-winning bassist John Clayton and his son, piano virtuoso Gerald Clayton.
A veteran of the Count
Basie Orchestra, Diana Krall, Monty Alexander, Milt Jackson, Quincy Jones, and countless others, John Clayton has led the all-star Clayton-Hamilton Big Band with drummer Jeff Hamilton and his late brother, saxophonist Jeff Clayton, for over 35 years.
Among the finest pianists of his generation, Gerald Clayton was a finalist in the 2006 Thelonious Monk International Jazz Piano Competition and has worked widely with Roy Hargrove and Charles Lloyd, while releasing five brilliant albums as a leader including his GRAMMY-nominated 2020 Blue Note debut, Happening: Live at the Village Vanguard.
For this show, father and son will showcase their years of musical connection in an evening of originals and standards.
