Gerald Clayton’s “Theme From MLK/FBI” is from the powerful, award-winning film MLK/FBI and is now available on a 7” single along with Preservation Hall’s Jazz Band’s “Lift Every Voice & Sing,”.
Clayton’s “Theme…” is a gorgeous, affecting, and chilling arrangement that acts as the perfect accompaniment to the film’s tragic and searing storytelling. A two-time Grammy nominee for 2021, Clayton is “a pianist of great touch and soulful exposition,” according to the New York Times. He is also the Musical Director of the Montreal Jazz Festival's Next Generation Jazz Orchestra, and has released five acclaimed albums including Two-ShadeLife Forum, Tributary Tales and, most recently, his debut on Blue Note Records, Happening: Live at the Village Vanguard.
Preservation Hall Jazz Band’s “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” the group’s uplifting version of the black national anthem, was recorded specifically for MLK/FBI. The song was released in December with an official video that features footage from the film, and was co-directed by Preservation Hall Jazz Band’s Ben Jaffe and Kenneth Alexander Campbell.
