Nicholas Payton is widely considered one of the greatest artists of our time. Hailed as a virtuoso before he was even out of high school, his unbridled talent has earned him praise and accolades, as well as insured his place in history. Like a master chef possessing a deft sense of proportion, taste and poetic flair, this forward-looking heir to the traditions of New Orleans blends an array of related musical food groups – bebop, swing, the Great American Songbook, New Orleans second-line, Mardi Gras Indian, instrumental soul, rhythm-and-blues, urban, hip-hop, and various Afro-descended dialects of Central America and the Caribbean – into a focused sound that is entirely his own argot.
