I heard Nicholas Payton at Jazz from Lincoln Center many years ago and thought he was fantastic. I also have one great CD of his. But I felt he was somewhat uninspiring at Birdland last week. After performing each of his solos (with his quintet) he would leave the stage until his next solo. His quintet is good but I just felt like the energy level was low.

We had a wonderful time at the Birdland. We got there a little early and were seating right in front of the stage. The sexton band was definitely a pleasure to watch. I really enjoyed the stand up bass and the singer.The place was nice and clean,
Since 1994, when Nicholas Payton made his recording debut as a leader with From This Moment, the trumpeter has been lauded as a significant, top-tier voice in jazz. Even though he started out as a "young lion of jazz," heralded as one of the new-generation guardians of the hard bop flame, 34 year-old Payton devoted himself to discovering his voice outside of the strict confines of that rearview mirror approach to the music. Having grown up in a family of musicians in the jazz Mecca of New Orleans, Payton has built his unique voice by melding a post-bop foundation, a heavy emphasis on groove, his soulful history, and various experimental elements. The New York Times has called Payton "Abundantly gifted," and Music Direct describes his music as "Soulful, pensive and romantic."
