Featured recording “In and Out of Love”

Latest Release

In and Out of Love

Sunnyside Records (2010)
”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, July 14, 2004
