The Clifford Lamb Trio capture the essence of summertime jazz: smooth and melodious with a refreshing spritz of surprise. With Cindy Blackman Santana on drums, Buster Williams on Bass, and Clifford Lamb behind the helm on piano, the jazz ensemble bridge the gap between the past and the present by bringing classics, such as Gershwin’s "Summertime,” back into the light. Lamb’s musicality also drive the trio’s efforts to innovate such classics with a measure of restraint that honors the integrity of the original work.
George J. Gilliam is a much-loved jazz guitarist with a depth of talent that stands out in every performance and recording. With influences such as Wes Montgomery, Barney Kessel and George Benson, listening becomes a sheer pleasure. Always accompanied by an “A-Team” of musicians, his quartet captures the ear with an energetic modern jazz feel or mellow your soul with rich relaxing tones.
