Pianist Gerald Clayton and saxophonist Ben Wendel are bandmates and compelling musical collaborators. The two share a sumptuous approach to jazz, where sophisticated chords and shifting rhythms are delivered with charm and enthusiasm. Clayton began playing with his family band, the Clayton Brothers, as a child, studied with Kenny Barron, and is a multiple GRAMMY nominee. He was last seen at Duke Performances in Piedmont Blues. Wendel plays with the fusion outfit Kneebody and has performed with Snoop Dogg and Prince. His playing has a radiant lyricism that finds delight in every melodic contour, making him the perfect partner for this project.
