Jay Clayton is an internationally acclaimed vocalist, composer, and educator, whose work boldly spans the terrain between jazz and new music.

In 1963 she began her career performing the standards on the vibrant New York music scene. However, she quickly became a prominent part of the free jazz movement.

Her work in these two worlds led to the development of a highly personal, wordless vocabulary later enhanced by her innovative use of electronics.

“Clayton is an important singer…one who proposed dramatic changes in vocal styles and roles…her musicianship is impeccable.” Francis Davis – Downbeat

“As far as vocal innovation goes, Jay Clayton is precariously on the cutting edge.” Fred Bouchard – Jazz Times“

“More than 20 years after her debut recording All Out, Clayton is still the most adventurous singer in jazz, a specialist in wordless improvisation who’s also expert in distending and finding new meanings in the melodies and lyrics of classic popular songs.”  Francis Davis, The Village Voice

Workshop:  Annie Sellick  www.anniesellick.com
 All-vocal Jam

Through a set of basic guidelines provided, we create group improvisations of all-vocal music as it occurs to us in that moment.  A major part of our workshop will be dedicated to deepening our understanding of major, minor and seventh chords.  The circle holds down a groove while we take turns "soloing" or practicing the notes, intervals and scales that we learn.  This is a great opportunity for ear-training, reinforcing basic music theory and just stretching out and going for it!  Most important is committing to a musically supportive and playful circle (imagine a guided "drum circle of voices" if you will…) where we walk away having connected to each other, to the moment and having learned something as well.
3 hours - $35

 Contact sharonlamotte@gmail.com  for more information . To register Send $35 to Call That Jazz at 20 Pinecroft Rd Asheville, NC 28804
