The Clayton-Hamilton Jazz Orchestra is unusual for the reason that they have three leaders: drummer Jeff Hamilton, altoist Jeff Clayton, and bassist John Clayton. While Hamilton (that has performed frequently with Oscar Peterson, Ray Dark brown, Monty Alexander, Gene Harris, as well as the L.A. Four) actually drives the music group, and Jeff Clayton (whose audio is motivated by Cannonball Adderley) is among the orchestra’s best soloists, it really is John Clayton’s colourful and unpredictable preparations that basically give this big music group its own character. Furthermore, Clayton (who was simply formerly with Count number Basie) is an extremely talented soloist, particularly if bowing. The swinging orchestra, filled up with top LA players (including such soloists as Rickey Woodard, Charlie Owens, Bobby Bryant, Snooky Youthful, Oscar Brashear, George Bohanon, Thurman Green, and Costs Cunliffe) can take its with every other big music group from the ’90s and 2000s, as proven on its two Capri models (Groove Store and Core) and its own Lake Street discharge Absolutely.

Looks like we don't have salary information. Sorry!
[on New Orleans] Everytime I go there I lose myself. I feel like I'm in some otherworldly place. It doesn't even feel like it's connected with the United States. It's it's own little planet and it's got its own little orb.
