All Music Guide - Jonathan Widran
Voted the number two big band playing in the mid-'00s by a Jazz Times Reader's Poll, the popular, Grammy nominated, L.A.-based ensemble the Clayton-Hamilton Jazz Orchestra celebrated 20 years of maintaining and expanding the big band jazz tradition in 2005. As the adage goes, the live setting is where the spirit of jazz really happens, and this recording, Live at MCG -- recorded over a four-day "residency" at the Manchester Craftsmen's Guild in Pittsburgh in May 2004 -- perfectly captures Clayton-Hamilton's spontaneous spirit. Though the core and namesakes of the unit are bassist/conductor John Clayton, saxophonist and flutist Jeff Clayton, and drummer Jeff Hamilton, ...

All Music Guide - Jonathan Widran
Voted the number two big band playing in the mid-'00s by a Jazz Times Reader's Poll, the popular, Grammy nominated, L.A.-based ensemble the Clayton-Hamilton Jazz Orchestra celebrated 20 years of maintaining and expanding the big band jazz tradition in 2005. As the adage goes, the live setting is where the spirit of jazz really happens, and this recording, Live at MCG -- recorded over a four-day "residency" at the Manchester Craftsmen's Guild in Pittsburgh in May 2004 -- perfectly captures Clayton-Hamilton's spontaneous spirit. Though the core and namesakes of the unit are bassist/conductor John Clayton, saxophonist and flutist Jeff Clayton, and drummer Jeff Hamilton, the trio happily let numerous soloists color the mix. Their feisty, swinging opening take on Hoagy Carmichael's "Georgia," for instance features a frenetic tenor solo by Rickey Woodard, who also adds a spunky energy to the sly, more subtly rhythmic Horace Silver tune "Jody Grind." Up-grooving exercises like these two tracks and "Captain Bill" as played by Monty Alexander, Ray Brown, and Herb Ellis, are balanced by more introspective numbers. "Nature Boy," featuring John Clayton's dramatic bass bowing, is given a semi-classical reading, while the graceful and moody "Lullaby of the Leaves" features guest solos by George Bohanon trombone and Tamir Hendelman piano. Clayton-Hamilton save their most robust burst of traditional-meets-modern-day energy for "Silver Celebration," John Clayton's fiery tribute to piano great Horace Silver, which features an irrepressible rolling drum solo by Hamilton. This description only scratches the surface of the many colorful textures of a project that sums up all the fun and tradition the Clayton-Hamilton Jazz Orchestra have been bringing to the world for two decades.

    A creative jazz concert mix.

    Though not exactly a jazz connoisseur, I've heard enough of it in many forms to appreciate what's good, even when I don't always understand it. This CD by the Clayton Hamilton Jazz Orchestra really blows me away, and certainly the artists couldn't have found a more appreciative audience. There's something for everybody here, from creative takes on such numbers as Georgia and Mood Indigo, to the lesser known and more avant guard offerings. Any jazz fan who doesn't have this recording in his/her collection is missing one of the gems of our time. This jazz orchestra deserves every accolade it gets, and I hope its work will become even better known, especially among fans like myself who aren't experts, but who still know good jazz when they hear it.
