The Clayton-Hamilton Jazz Orchestra at Performing Arts Centre

The best American big band will take to the stage at the Moscow International Performing Arts Centre.

The big band, The Clayton-Hamilton Jazz Orchestra, owes its fabulous success on all continents to its founders, John and Jeff Claytons and Jeff Hamilton, unique jazzmen and masters of improvisation.

Their very first release, Groove Shop was nominated for a Grammy. Follow-up albums also enjoyed success, being repeatedly recognised as the best recordings of the year and becoming long-standing chart-toppers. David Badham, authoritative critic of Jazz Journal International, admitted that The Clayton-Hamilton Jazz Orchestra was one of the best big bands he had ever heard. World stars − Diana Kroll, John Pizzarelli, Dee Dee Bridgewater and Charles Aznavour – have performed with the band.

Four years ago, The Clayton-Hamilton Jazz Orchestra gave a concert at the Performing Arts Centre. This time, the orchestra will accompany Cecile McLorin Salvant, a phenomenally gifted singer and composer. At the age of 28, Salvant got a Grammy for her solo album as well as was the winner of the prestigious Thelonious Monk Jazz Competition and also of the Jazz Journalists Association Award. Cecile has come to jazz through her passion for classical singing and early music.

She has been compared to Sarah Vaughan, Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald but the young singer sets her own standards in everything – the way she sings, the way she dresses as well as the way she behaves on stage. Her distinctive features are bright eccentric clothes and huge white glasses and most importantly her at times rather loud “savoury” voice.
