Gerald Clayton Trio says
Tri-C JazzFest is proud to present this year's artist in residence Gerald Clayton along with Joe Sanders (bass) and Obed Calvaire (drums).

Over the course of eight years -- with three albums as a leader, several studio projects as a sideman, and countless worldwide performances -- pianist and composer Gerald Clayton has been hailed by the New York Times for his "huge, authoritative presence." Born in the Netherlands in 1984 and raised in Southern California, Clayton started piano lessons at age 7 with the encouragement of his father, the acclaimed jazz bassist, composer and bandleader John Clayton. In 2006, Gerald received the second place prize in the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz Piano Competition. He enjoyed a three-year stint with Roy Hargrove before releasing Two Shade, his debut album as a leader, with bassist Joe Sanders and drummer Justin Brown. Along with his trio, he tours with Charles Lloyd, the Clayton Brothers and, most recently with Terence Blanchard and Ravi Coltrane as part of the Monterey Jazz Festival All-Stars. "I focus on creating honest musical expressions and collaborating with people whose ideas resonate with my own," says Gerald.
