UArts trained trumpeter playing with John Legend

University of the Arts alum Clayton Reilly will be playing trumpet with John Legend when the soulful Penn grad plays the Mann Center Saturday night. Reilly, 25, a Bethlehem native, has been hooked on jazz since childhood, when he would listen to big-band records with his grandfather. He graduated UArts in 2006 with a degree in trumpet performance and has since played with Patti Labelle, Natalie Cole and Diddy. He toured with Corinne Bailey Rae in 2007, when he met Legend, though Reilly only recently joined his band.
