Intro video:

In this video, Red Clay Trio performs the tune Red Clay. This tune inspires the name of this trio for it’s sense of place and for the ethos of what we strive for as musicians.

Written by Freddie Hubbard, Red Clay is considered a seminal work of soul/funk-influenced hard bop. This tune exemplifies the groove with which the Red Clay Trio swings!
