FT. GERALD CLAYTON
Improvised Music & Jazz© N.N.
Set 1: John Scofield
Set 2: John Scofield & Gerald Clayton
Approximate running time: 1h 40m with one intermission
“It’s a pleasure to write new music with a specific musician in mind to play it,” says John Scofield. For his first appearance at the Pierre Boulez Saal, the American guitarist, who began his career performing with legendary artists such as Chet Baker, Gerry Mulligan, and Miles Davis, is joined by pianist Gerald Clayton, with whom he shares a special bond: “I’ve known Gerald since he was a boy because his dad, bassist John Clayton, is a long-time friend. Gerald and I have toured on and off over the last four years and developed a true rapport—he is without question one of the best piano players I’ve ever worked with.” Prior to their duo set, Scofield will perform solo in the concert’s first half.
