"Gerald Clayton & Friends" is a weekly series on Tuesday nights, curated by iconic pianist and friend of Sam First, Gerald Clayton. Gerald Clayton will be out of town for this performance, but has arranged for saxophonist David Binney to perform in his place. The house band performs one set at 7:30pm which is immediately followed by a jam session from 9:00-11:00pm.
Acclaimed as a considerable and highly individual compositional talent, saxophonist David Binney is one of the most prolific jazz musicians on the scene today. Winning praise from critics and colleagues alike, David was singled out by Jazz Times as one of a handful of “players who have created an alternative jazz scene… all of whom are playing adventurous, original music.”
David’s distinctive saxophone sound and innovative compositions have been heard from basement clubs in New York to jazz festivals in Europe and the world. In addition to his extensive work as a leader, he has been sought after as a sideman, appearing on record with Medeski, Martin & Wood , Uri Caine’s Mahler Project and hundreds of others. David has also appeared on stage with Aretha Franklin, at Carnegie Hall, and with Maceo Parker, to name a few. He has produced all of his own 22 albums, and many others including two of the Lost Tribe releases, Scott Colley’s “The Architect of the Silent Moment”, 8 Donny McCaslin releases including the highly acclaimed Casting For Gravity, Fast Future and Beyond Now.
