About the Album

Inspired by the touches of Americana roots music that inform many of the recordings of Michael Brecker, Charlie Haden and Ornette Coleman, pianist Clay Giberson sought to explore the same in his own compositions on "Pastures." Assembling an all-star group of like-minded, creative musical spirits - Donny McCaslin on saxophone, Matt Wilson on drums, and Drew Gress on bass - they combine their earthy improvisational awarness with a towering sense of song and form, creating a highly listenable collection. Featuring five original compositions and four arrangements of others from C.P.E. Bach to a Shaker hymn, the music evokes that pastoral element, the space that stretches across the American sky. "...his sound is intimate and personal, full of thought-provoking beauty." ALL ABOUT JAZZ.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
