Gerald Clayton understands that any successful artistic venture requires absorbing as much as expressing. It also means maintaining a state of open-mindedness and respect for the musical input and exchanges with other artists.
Gerald is one of the most versatile, creative and virtuosic pianists and composers of his generation. He mixes genres and blurs boundaries between more familiar musical categories. Gerald enriches the art form in ways never previously imagined. His music is always exciting, inspirational, full of depth and fed by a strong, artistic energy.
In the summer of 2020, Gerald Clayton will tour in the company of his friends and creative partners, Walter Smith III, Joe Sanders and Kendrick Scott. This tour will mark the release of his most recent, just-recorded project. This album marks the completion of Gerald's childhood dream, a live recording at New York’s famed Village Vanguard.
