Nicholas Payton Trio featuring Gerald Cannon and Herlin Riley

Nicholas Payton is a Grammy award-winning trumpet player and multi-instrumentalist.  This New Orleans-born musician was brought up in an inherently talented and creative family, which urged and encouraged him to find his musical niche.  After touring with American jazz drummer Elvin Jones, Payton released his first album From This Moment (1994).  Garnering much attention from his first album, Nicholas Payton was propelled forward to further hone his sound while providing exemplary performances.
