A respected session musician and sideman, British blues pianist and composer Jon Cleary has worked with rock, blues, and soul artists like Bonnie Raitt, D’Angelo, Maria Muldaur, Taj Mahal, and Eric Clapton. Originally a guitarist, Cleary began playing at age five, and started his first band at 15. Raised on blues, jazz, and soul records, his love of New Orleans blues and jazz, in particular, took him across the ocean after he graduated from art school, where he's made his home for more than three decades.  

Today, Cleary’s work pays obvious homage to the classic Crescent City keyboard repertoire created by such icons as Jelly Roll Morton, Fats Domino, Professor Longhair, Art Neville, Dr. John, and James Booker – while also using it as a launching pad for a style that incorporates such other diverse influences as ’70s soul and R&B, gospel music, funk, Afro-Caribbean rhythms, and much more.

Now a master of the New Orleans piano, Jon Cleary gets together tonight with two of his Absolute Monster Gentlemen, "Jellybean" Alexander on drums and vocals, and Cornell Williams on bass and vocals.
