The Ubud Village Jazz Festival 2017 is over, but we will never forget how we get an exclusive preview of Gerald Clayton Trio featuring Joe Sanders and Gregory Hutchinson at Sheraton Bali Kuta Resort. The event was scheduled to start at 7PM. Everyone came and enjoy the amazing Jazz-themed cocktails that is provided by the sponsors, such as Smirnoff, Red Bull and also Strongbow Apple Cider. The whole Ballroom at the Sheraton Bali Kuta Resort exudes romance with dim lighting, cozy sofas, red ambiance and of course sexy Jazz music.
Everyone was calm and in the right mood when Gerald Clayton and his two partners, Joe Sanders and Gregory Hutchinson, start their session. Gerald was excited to be performing at Sheraton Bali Kuta Resort as this is his first time in Bali. The trio was in their zone as they captivate the audience with their tunes. Gerald has been nominated for Grammy awards four times whereas Joe Sanders is one of the most sought-after young bass players of his generation. Gerald and Joe go way back as they met each other in high school. Completing the trio is Gregory Hutchinson on drums who was named “the drummer of his generation” by Jazz Magazine. Gerald admits that he knows this legendary man since he was in high school and he is lucky to be playing at his side. This trio are a match made in heaven and it shows through their music.
The trio go on to play for two sessions. Meanwhile, The Sheraton Bali Kuta Resort holds nothing back in giving the best service to their guests. As the cocktails, wine, cider continue non stop, they also give us amazing canapes while we wait for the trio on the break. It was definitely a night to remember.
