Gerald Clayton

Gerald Clayton Trio

Pianist Gerald Clayton hails from jazz royalty as the son of esteemed Los Angeles bassist/arranger John Clayton and nephew of alto saxophonist Jeff Clayton. After moving to New York City in 2007, he toured widely with Ambrose Akinmusire, Gretchen Parlato, and Roy Hargrove. This matinee performance features his astounding Grammy-nominated trio with bassist Joe Sanders and, for this program, drummer and SFJAZZ Resident Artistic Director Eric Harland. With a compositional approach inspired by studies with Billy Childs, Clayton has honed a highly interactive sound woven from a vast array of sonic threads, and ensures us that jazz’ future is in good hands!

This concert will be followed by a Family Workshop in the Joe Henderson Lab at 12:15pm. Internationally recognized jazz and Orff educator Doug Goodkin, along with four talented Orff music teachers and musicians, will bring participating children and adults to new levels of jazz expression. Ideal for children 8 years old and above, this family workshop is designed for young musicians who are encouraged to bring their instruments and jam. Others will enjoy select Orff instruments and percussion. Don't miss this exciting opportunity to work with master Orff teachers! Free to matinee ticket-holders and ideal for children 8+. Sign-ups take place in the lobby one hour before matinee performance.

A limited number of free tickets are available to Bay Area school or community groups. If you are interested in bringing your school or community group to a Family Matinee, please fill out our ticket request form.
