Nicholas Payton

Since 1994 when Nicholas Payton made his recording debut as a leader with "From This Moment," the trumpeter, multi-instrumentalist, composer, and producer has been lauded as one of the leading voices in jazz. Even though he started out as a "young lion," one of the new generation guardians of the swing and bebop flames, the 42-year-old Payton has devoted himself to discovering sounds outside of strict traditional confines. Having grown up in a family and community of musicians in New Orleans, Payton has built his unique voice by melding a post-bop foundation, a heavy emphasis on groove, a soulful history, and various experimental elements. In addition to collaborating with an eclectic group of contemporary artists -- Trey Anastasio, Ray Charles, Daniel Lanois, Dr. John, Jill Scott, and Allen Toussaint, among them -- Payton is credited on over 120 recordings and had his music featured in film and television productions including Robert Altman's "Kansas City," HBO’s "Treme," and "The Americans" on FX. After recording for Verve, Warner Brothers, and Nonesuch, Payton now records for his own imprint, Paytone Records™.
