Now Playing:

The Artistry of ... Gerald Clayton

Thursday, 10 November 2016 14:46

A vanguard of musicians has taken a firm hold of jazz and collectively, creatively and artistically, hauled its many fantastic elements into their time and their many faceted worlds of diverse interests and styles that explode all at once for them. It’s an organic fusion of everything these younger players have grown up experiencing and hearing.

Jazz is gifted to a whole new audience. The elements include, R&B, Soul, Jazz, Hip Hop and Pop and the players evolve and appear so fast it takes no time to be considered a new elder in the pack. The Hargroves, Paytons, Wades and Glaspers to name a few.

In that same new set of waves is the breakout piano player Gerald Clayton. He’s a part of the generations that heard everything and when you listen to them play you hear the ‘everythings’ too. The artistry is in the mix.
