Nicholas Payton Trio

Critics' pick
New Orleans trumpeter Nicholas Payton started out on the jazz scene, but has become quite the polymath—a magnificent soloist who can add teeth to easy-listening funk and bop and an astute commentator with sharp ideas on what he terms Black American Music. Here Payton, who doubles on keyboards, heads a hot combo with bassist Buster Williams and drummer Lenny White.
