John Clayton

Perfil:
African-American jazz bassist, arranger, bandleader and educator. Whether as an articulate spokesman for the music or functioning as part of a rhythm section, John Clayton is a major force. Born in Venice (near Los Angeles) in 1952, John Clayton picked up the double-bass at junior high school as part of his chosen music elective course and mastered the fundamentals quickly. Years later, John's most influential teacher was to be Ray Brown, who gave John the opportunities of playing in gigs and shows. John said: "I had to learn all of my major, minor, whole tone and diminished scales, as well as all of my chord types (major triads, minor triads, dominant 7ths, minor 7ths, diminished 7ths and augmented 7ths). He also made me learn as many jazz and standard tunes as I could." John then became involved with the Monty Alexander Trio for 2 years (1975-77), Count Basie Orchestra for another 2 years (late 1977-79), and Amsterdam Philharmonic Orchestra in Holland for 5 years. Upon returning to Los Angeles, John wanted to try his hand at film scoring but became a studio bassist for 75-piece orchestras that played soundtrack music that was in John's opinion "quite mediocre". He quit that scene. The Clayton Brothers was founded in 1977 with his brother, altoist Jeff Clayton (3). While their paths would sometimes diverge, the brothers continued to share a common musical vision that would draw them back together. The group has been a quartet, quintet and even a sextet at different points in time. Do not confuse John Clayton with John Clayton (2), an Indie rock bass guitar player.
