Nicholas Peyton at Scullers Jazz Club!

May 26, 2017    8:00 pm to 9:30 pm

Scullers Jazz Club Presents Nicholas Peyton!



Like a master chef possessing a deft sense of proportion, taste and poetic flair, this forward-looking heir to the traditions of New Orleans blends an array of related musical food groups”Bebop, Swing, the Great American Songbook, New Orleans second-line, Mardi Gras Indian, Instrumental Soul, Rhythm-and-Blues, Urban, Hip-Hop, and various Afro-descended dialects of Central America and the Caribbean”into a focused sound that is entirely his own argot.


On Afro-Caribbean Mixtape, propelled by keyboardist Kevin Hays, bassist Vicente Archer, drummer Joe Dyson, percussionist Daniel Sadownick, and turntablist DJ Lady Fingaz, Payton seamlessly coalesces his interests, drawing on a global array of beats, melodies and harmonic consciousness to serve his lifelong conviction that music is a process by which the practitioner uses notes and tones to map, identity and tell a story.

"Afro-Caribbean Mixtape is a work of great rigor and discipline, steeped in jazz tradition and yet utterly unbound." - Larry Blumenfeld-wallstreetjournalcom-Feb 2017
