Gerald Clayton “has proved himself one of the standout jazz pianists of his generation, possessed of silvery technique and an intent but relaxed way with a phrase” (The New York Times). Gerald Clayton’s music is steeped in the blues. He searches for honest expression in every note he plays. Mr. Clayton made his Koerner Hall debut in the Oscar @ 90 concert in 2015.
