* John Clayton & Gerald Clayton (DCJF) (Livestream)

June 29, 2020 @ 8:30 pm
DC Jazz Festival from Home
Donations Encouraged

Pianist Gerald Clayton stands at the head of his generation in the straight-ahead world. He’s been a part of some of the defining recordings of jazz’s second century, including Roy Hargrove’s seminal Earfood and Ambrose Akinmusire’s Blue Note debut When the Heart Emerges Glistening. Both records – as well as his own – give an idea of Clayton’s approach: warm harmonies that blend like watercolors and twinkling melodies that shine and stick in your head.

He performs in a duo with his father, the prolific bassist John Clayton, a live stream as part of the DC Jazz Fest from Home
