Gerald Cleaver | Back
Drums

Detroit-born drummer Gerald Cleaver was a prominent member of the city's jazz scene while in his early 20s, before spending time teaching Jazz Studies at Michigan State University, and then re-locating to New York in 1992.

The list of musicians with whom he has worked reads like a Who's Who of contemporary American jazz, ranging from pioneers like Muhal Richard Abrams, Henry Threadgill and Reggie Workman to new generation stars such as Craig Taborn and Matthew Shipp. He also leads bands of his own, with his first album winning nomination as "Best Debut Recording" by the Jazz Journalists Association.
