Tributary Tales Tributary Tales

Marketing Highlights

Four-time GRAMMY-nominated pianist/composer Gerald Clayton discovered a profound metaphor in the form of a phenomenon of nature, tributaries, (defined as “a river or stream that flows into a larger river or lake"), that vividly describes “the art of life,” which brings together myriad influences – personal, musical, experiential, cultural, social – that flow into one, creating a distinct individual. On his new album, Tributary Tales, Clayton revisits the various streams of experience that have made him the artist and the person that he is today.
