Clayton (BigTrigger) Corley, Sr. is a native of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He developed his love of writing at the age of 14 and his love of jazz from as far back as he can remember. While in high school, he wrote for the school newspaper and was recognized by the Pulitzer Prize Committee for Journalism for his articles about the West Philadelphia High Speedboys basketball team. As of May 2005, he became a published author with the release of Universal Moods (a short story collection). Clayton credits his literary influences from the likes of poets Langston Hughes, George Moses Horton and his mother, the late Barbara Mae Ayers, who was an accomplished writer in her own right. His love of jazz stems from childhood when he was asked to play the albums belonging to his parents while they entertained guests in the basement of their home. Yes, they ran a speakeasy and Clayton was the "Record Guy." His parent's collection consisting of artists such as Miles Davis, Errol Garner, Cannonball Adderley, and Nancy Wilson created the foundation for his broad knowledge of jazz. Clayton feels that jazz and poetry were made for each other. "Both have elements of improvisation and are major ways of negotiating agendas and communicating with one another. They also have vast history especially as it relates to our culture. These two art forms need to be kept alive and passed down to future generations." That's what Spotlight on Jazz & Poetry strives to do. He was born under the sign of Pisces. As is true to most born under that sign, Clayton is a "Dreamer." This trait is evident in his writing and has helped in formulating the concept for his radio program. Clayton is married, has four children, and just recently became a grandfather.
