Program Notes

Coming from a place of eclectic appreciation for music and the arts, Klaxton has written a collection of music that’s both personal and sure to speak to any audience. The music is inspired as much by growing up in the 90’s as it is by contemporary jazz, classical, or electronic music. Assembling a band of incredible improvisers, each performance takes on a new shape and highlights the beauty of spontaneity.

Thank you to the band for their time, energy and support in preparing this original music.
Thank you to my family for the decades of support and encouragement.
Thank you to Taylor for your endless love and support. You’ve heard more long-tones than any partner should have to.
Thank you to all my friends.

“Let’s remind each other to engage in the beauty of being. Let’s share what we make for each other.”
-CJL (for whom this recital is dedicated)
