HAPPY 85TH BIRTHDAY MILES DAVIS! featuring THE NICHOLAS PAYTON XXX
Acclaimed Grammy Winning trumpet player Nicholas Payton performs with his band on the occasion of Miles Davis' 85th birthday. Heavily influenced by Miles, Nicholas is fond of breaking down barriers and celebrates Miles' legacy each time he picks up his trumpet. And like Miles Davis, Payton's voice is singularly unique. Mr. Payton will perform with two heavyweights! ... Bob Hurst, bassist of choice for both Branford and Wynton Marsalis. and drummer Lenny White who launched his career on Miles Davis's "Bitches Brew".
Nicholas, multi-instrumentalist that he is, will play fender rhodes as well as trumpet. Expect to hear new songs from Nicholas' vast original repertoire including some from his unreleased cd, "Bitches". This is sure to be a sensual feast with a big helping of straight-ahead fire worthy of Miles!
