Shareef Clayton & Friends at Garage Arts

Sat 2 Dec, 2017

Melody Gardot med band

Shareef Clayton was heavily influenced by artist such as Louis Armstrong, Dizzy Gillespie, Wynton Marsalis, Arturo Sandoval, although the cultural influence of Miami can still be heard throughout Clayton’s playing and compositions. From piercing notes to slow jams, the sound and feel of his music is intense, he notes “whatever the crowd wants, I can deliver it and the crowd always gets what they want.”

Being a clinician and having the desire to share his talent with the world, he helped others to hone their craft as he taught master classes at numerous different schools. While studying at the Manhattan School of Music in New York, he learned advanced ­level jazz music theory, improvisation, and composition. His vast repertoire includes jazz, r&b, Afro­Cuban, and funk/soul. His studying of music goes far beyond his education in the classroom; Clayton has studied with some of today’s leading voices in Jazz, such as Arturo Sandoval, Laurie Frink and Melton Mustafa.
