ABOUT

Nicholas Payton is a Grammy Award-winning trumpet player, composer, and multi-instrumentalist from New Orleans, Louisiana. A founding member of the SFJAZZ Collective, he has performed with such artists as Marcus Roberts, Elvin Jones, Herbie Hancock, Stanley Jordan, Ray Charles, among others. His numerous recordings include the 1997 album Doc Cheatham & Nicholas Payton, for which he received a Grammy Award for Best Instrumental Solo.

“Payton’s clarion trumpet, as well as his genre-defying solos, stood at the center of the music making... Payton bent notes beyond recognition… No descriptive label or category could be affixed to Payton’s solos, which were as brashly original as they were technically imposing.” — Howard Reich, Chicago Tribune

John Brown directs the Duke Jazz Ensemble. The Duke Djembe and Afro Cuban Ensembles are directed by Bradley Simmons.
