Jay Clayton

"Sing Free!" – Come free your voice

Jay Clayton offers a Vocal Jazz Workshop

Corfu International Festival & Choir Competition

We are delighted to welcoming the international renowned US-American jazz and avant-garde vocalist Jay Clayton in our festival. In the course of the 1st Corfu International Festival & Choir Competition, which will be held from October 12-16, 2016 on the Ionian Island Corfu, Clayton will lead a workshop for all participants of the festival.

Under the heading "Sing Free!" the singers will be encouraged to sing free, to see their voice as experiment in order to improvise and to compose spontaneously. On this basis Jay Clayton will discuss techniques of jazz singing and will work intensively on her own compositions and adaptions of composition by the British jazz bassist and composer Dave Holland together with the participants of the workshop.

Since 1963 Jay Clayton experiments in the field of jazz music. Beginning with jazz standards of New York's music scene she quickly became a prominent part of the free jazz movement. Her highly personal and wordless expression is influenced by the new music and by the use of electronics.

A little foretaste of what you can expect in the workshop with Jay Clayton, can be found in the following video:
