UPDATE: This live event is now over but an archived video will soon be available for members to watch on demand.

For JazzTimes’ next live Before & After listening session, available exclusively to our members, host Ashley Kahn will be joined by pianist and composer Gerald Clayton. Our regular critic Thomas Conrad described Clayton’s playing on his most recent release, 2020’s Happening: Live at the Village Vanguard—his first album on Blue Note Records—as “wild, free-spilling, lyrical … consistently stunning.”

The live session starts at 3 p.m. ET on Friday, August 13. Members can log on by going to the JazzTimes Member Benefits page, scrolling down to the “Live Before & After Listening Sessions” section, and clicking on the link for Gerald Clayton.

If you’re not a JazzTimes member, this may be a good time to consider becoming one.
