The Clayton Brothers Quintet

  • Jazz Standard 116 East 27th Street New York, NY, 10016 United States (map)

Shows at 7:30pm & 9:30pm nightly:

The inception of The Clayton Brothers as a working jazz ensemble dates back more than 35 years, when Jeff and John Clayton formed the original quintet (which also included Patrice Rushen on piano). The brothers went their separate ways but reunited in 1985 when John left the Amsterdam Philharmonic after five years and relocated back in California. Trumpeter Terrell Stafford joined the group in 2000; in 2008, the addition of John’s gifted son Gerald on piano and Obed Calvaire on drums completed the present lineup. The collective CV of this group includes performances and recordings with everyone from Madonna and Sir Paul McCartney to Hank Jones and Roy Hargrove. In 2015, The Clayton Brothers launched a new ArtistShare release, Soul Brothers – new music that acts as a prism through which the listener may hear their experiences of life and family.
