Trumpeter Nicholas Payton celebrates the release of his new album “Relaxin’ with Nick” with his trio featuring bassist Peter Washington and drummer Kenny Washington. Originally from the New Orleans, Payton is a virtuoso trumpeter and pianist steeped in acoustic jazz, post-bop, and the music of his hometown, but who is often found exploring music beyond the confines of the jazz tradition. He has recorded and performed with Wynton Marsalis, Dr. Michael White, Christian McBride, Joshua Redman, Roy Hargrove, Doc Cheatham, and Joe Henderson, among others and is widely considered one of the great artists of our time. In a review, the Chicago Tribune reports, “No descriptive label or category could be affixed to Payton’s solos, which were as brashly original as they were technically imposing.”
