Description

The Grammy nominated quintet The Clayton Brothers was originally formed in 1977 by brothers John and Jeff, and while their paths sometimes diverged, the brothers continued to share a common musical vision that would draw them back together again.

Their album, Back in the Swing of Things demonstrates their unique musical vision. The album, as well as the songs “Expressions” and “Siblingity,” are bristling with surprises, delights, and the kind of musical telepathy that could only come from tuned in siblings. Their most recent recordings were nominated for Grammy Awards for Best Jazz Instrumental Album, Individual or Group. The brothers place a strong emphasis on sharing their knowledge and thus are dedicated jazz educators who travel extensively to participate in workshops and music clinics around the world.

Currently, the quintet consists of John’s son, Gerald Clayton on piano, who is also a Grammy-nominee for his 2009 album Two Shade, for Best Instrumental Composition, Battle Circle from The Clayton Brothers,’ The New Song and Dance, and in 2011 for Best Jazz Instrumental Album for Bond: The Paris Sessions. Obed Calvaire is on drums and Terell Stafford, a highly regarded trumpeter and band-leader, are also members of the quintet.
