Free Concert with Grammy-Winner Bassist John Clayton At Emory University On November 11, 2010

Grammy-winner and industry great, bassist John Clayton, performs in a free concert on November 11 at Emory University's Schwartz Center for Performing Arts. Joining Clayton will be pianist Gary Motley, Emory University's Director of Jazz Studies, along with trumpeter Jason Covey, saxophonist Randy Hunter and drummer Justin Chesarek—artist affiliates with the Emory University Jazz Studies program. The ensemble will perform selections from the Clayton Brothers' CD "Brother to Brother" as well as other arrangements for the group by Motley.

Seven-time Grammy nominated bassist/composer/conductor John Clayton's talents are consistently requested by the movers and shakers in the jazz industry, such as Quincy Jones and Tommy Lipuma. John Clayton served as the Artistic Director of Jazz for the Los Angeles Philharmonic from 1999 through 2001. In addition, he is Artistic Director for the Centrum Jazz Workshop in Port Townsend, Washington and was also appointed Artistic Director for the Lionel Hampton International Jazz Festival in 2006. He is equally comfortable in jazz and classical music, and hits the mark, whether it is as composer, arranger, conductor, teacher, in addition to his magnificence when he plays his bass.

Schwartz Center for Performing Arts, Emory Concert Hall, 1700 North Decatur Road, Atlanta, 30322.
