Gerald Clayton – Bond: The Paris Sessions

There’s an art to finding a way to tell your own unique version of a story and to have it still be entertaining and make sense to those listening. This is essentially the story of pianist Gerald Clayton’s latest recording, Bond. On this effort, Clayton continues his exploration of new ways to tell the story. He manages to be innovative, and yet, musically entertaining, something which is quite an art. Joining Clayton in this effort are drummer Justin Brown and bassist Joe Sanders. The great bassist John Clayton (Gerald’s father) lends a producing hand to the project. In addition to the interpretations of the music, the alchemy of the trio makes the end result thoroughly engaging and engrossing .
