Description

Brothers John and Jeff Clayton prove conclusively that blood is thicker than water and can carry an unimpeded flow of pure creativity. While their paths would sometimes diverge—with John becoming a seven-time Grammy Award-winning jazz and classical bassist, and saxophonist Jeff recording several pop and jazz albums—the brothers continued to share a common musical vision that would draw them back together, now as two members of The Clayton Brothers Quintet. Currently, the quintet consists of John’s son Gerald Clayton on piano (second place winner of the Thelonious Monk Competition); Obed Calvaire on drums; and Terell Stafford, a highly regarded trumpeter and band leader in his own right.
