NYC: NICHOLAS PAYTON AND ACTION AFFIRMATIVE

Since 1994 when Nicholas Payton made his recording debut as a leader with "From This Moment," the trumpeter has been lauded as one of the leading young instrumental 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 40-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. Payton's new ensemble "Action Affirmative" is a return of sorts - to the fiery postbox of "Nick@Night" (Verve Records, 2000) for which he has received much acclaimed - but with a new lineup of stellar collaborators. There is a $40 cover plus a $10 food/drink minimum.
