Blizzard be damned! Tonight, I'll be at the Village Vanguard
to help put together WBGO
s live broadcast of the Gerald Clayton
Trio featuring Joe Sanders
on bass and Justin Brown
on drums at 9 pm . If you're snowed in (or just far away) you can check it out on our live audio/video stream
and chat about the performance with yours truly, as well as Josh Jackson
and Patrick Jarenwattananon
I have raved about Clayton before, and I'm excited to see him in action leading a trio. The scary thing is that the guy is making his debut at the Vanguard at age 25 the same age as me. We actually attended the same high school summer jazz camp together (along with fellow jazz wunderkind Aaron Parks) way back in 2002. I may not have followed the same path as he did, but at least mine will lead me to hear him play tonight!
So join us either in person or online for some fantastic music despite the crazy weather.
