Jim Clayton Trio

Every Friday, and Saturday throughout the sizzling Summer, The Home Smith Bar at the Old Mill Toronto showcases some of the most important instrumentalists on today’s jazz scene performing for your pleasure in the cozy intimacy of one of Toronto’s best-loved lounges.

Award-winning pianist JIM CLAYTON’s latest album, Lenny Jumps In, landed in the Top 10 at Canadian Jazz Radio and Top 30 in the U.S., where it was featured in Jazziz Magazine. His 2014 album Songs My Daughter Knows was described as “warm and soulful” by DownBeat.

Critics and musicians alike describe Clayton as “the new Vince Guaraldi” for his melodic playing and catchy compositions. His music has been heard internationally on radio, in film, and on television (including Dateline NBC and The Kardashians).

He spent a decade as a music director with Emmy-winning theatre company The Second City, entertaining audiences around the globe, from ex-pats in Asia to our troops in Bosnia.  His recording act, The Clayton/Scott Group, was twice named ‘Group of the Year’ at Canada’s Smooth Jazz Awards, and picked up ‘Best Jazz Recording’ at the Canadian Urban Music Awards.

This evening’s stellar JIM CLAYTON TRIO features jazz masters JIM CLAYTON on trumpet, NEIL SWAINSON (bass), and DAVID PETERS (drums), entertaining in the up-close-and-personal ambience of the Home Smith Bar.
