January 23 - Grammy Award Winning Trumpeter - Nicholas Payton
Nicholas Payton is the embodiment of every trumpet player who came before him, and he leads the way for all who follow. Hailed as a virtuoso before he was even out of high school, his maturation as a prodigious talent has earned him praise as one of the most important artists of our time.
Nicholas has recorded 8 albums under his own name including the 1997 Grammy Award winning, Doc Cheathum and Nicholas Payton. Nicholas has two newly released CDs, "Nick@Night" and "Bitches" - the later is a love story that musically chronicles the joys and heartbreak of relationships.
Join me as I chit chat with Nicholas about his music, and about the "BAM" movement.
