April 2nd marks one year since Gerald Clayton released his Concord label debut album, Life Forum-- a break for Clayton from his typical trio format on studio albums to a larger, fuller sound with production from Kneebody's Ben Wendel. It's a favorite album of ours of last year and you should definitely get it if you haven't already. To commemorate such an achievement, Clayton today released on his newly made Soundcloud page a stream of the jazz standard "Skylark", the Japanese bonus track on the album. Check out the song after the jump and remember why Gerald Clayton is one of the best piano players on the scene today.

Life Forum is out now on Concord Records at iTunes and Amazon.
