Gerald Clayton Trio @ Village Vanguard

Remember this guy? He's really good.

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.
