January 13th 2018!!! This is a Must Event you can’t pass up. The most dramatic and dynamic concert the NVJS has ever presented and for a great cause!
John Clayton, Jeff Hamilton and Jeff Clayton founded the CHJO in 1986. The two young men, John and Jeff Hamilton, had played together with Monty Alexander, and then gone their separate ways, reuniting in Los Angeles to found the band. Brother Jeff Clayton, who had been living and working in Los Angeles all along, came on board to help put the band together.
It’s all about the music and the camaraderie. In addition to technical instrumental prowess and excellent “jazzmanship,” the primary criteria for choosing band members is dedication. The love of the music and the love of the “band-family” must be the motivation and anyone who thinks this is just a gig need not apply. A number of renowned jazz artists have been a part of this musical family!
