Trumpeter Nicholas Payton has a tough line of influence preceding him. His New Orleans roots--not to mention his stellar self-titled CD of duets with Doc Cheatham--recall the great Louis Armstrong, even if his style is less aligned with any single horn voice. He's moved stealthily into a groove with the band on Nick@Night since they came together on CD for Gumbo Nouveau in 1995. Soprano and tenor saxophonist Tim Warfield plays nicely clipped lines on the straight horn, with drummer Adonis Rose crashing along at times with the force of a Tony Williams acolyte, surprising those familiar with earlier, more laid-back Payton affairs. Of course, the trumpeter is the front man and grabs much of the attention with his rapid attack, bent with arty slurs and half-valve statements. Payton solos with lightning quickness and hopping, rhythmic leaps on "Blacker Black's Revenge" and the pair of entertaining interludes that dot Nick@Night. And despite the presence of the very unhumorous harpsichord on a couple tracks, this rendition of Payton's band hearkens back to the Cheatham session (very obliquely) in its sense of fun, with "Captain Crunch (Meets the Cereal Killer)" living up in spirit to its promising title. Further, Anthony Wonsey actually makes the harpsichord (and the celeste) sound appropriate here, sticking with the instrument's warmer corners and steering away from any hyperruns or nervous stair climbs. Payton's band can be a rollicking one, and here they show their full range of potency. --Andrew Bartlett

I bought this soon after it came out, played many times and really liked it. I put it back in rotation recently and have really come to love this cd. These guys smoke! Reminds me of Lee Morgan "Sidewinder" era. Payton and Warfield match up really well and were meant to play together. The tunes are straight ahead bop that never let up. I also found Anthony Wonsey to be a very interesting pianist. The cd didn't strike me as ground breaking, but I'm not a musician so I may be missing something. It is however chock full of great tunes with inspired playing. Definitely check out this cd as well as Payton's "Payton's Place".

I love the beginnings of Payton's CDS. Payton's Place's first track kicks off with that great drum beat and gets the music going with grove that just makes you dance. Gumbo Nouveau kicks off in a similar way with Whoopin' Blues letting you know the theme is New Orleans. This offering starts with some harpsicord that gets the listener ready for some jazz in the same way. The rest of the album did not seem to captivate me as much as the previously mentioned offerings did, However. It is still a wonderful CD and I am very glad to play it in regular rotation.

Though the CD itself isn't as fun or enjoyable as seeing Nick play live - I interviewed him as well as caught his last show here in Salt Lake - it's reminiscent of it and gives the listener nothing but good vibes throughout the entire listening. He's a powerhouse of a performer and only in small ways like Armstrong, though he's making a name for himself in jazz; Nick will be with us for years to come.

I have literally thousands of jazz albums. My dad hosts a jazz festival with world renown jazz artists every year. I can confidently say this is as good as contemporary jazz gets. The musicians--Anthony Wonsey, Reuben Rogers, Adonis Rose, and Tim Warfield--are plain nasty. The album is accessible but very contemporary at the same time. The chord changes and solos are just so good... I've had this CD for ten years and I still love listening to it. Captain Crunch? OMG that song is killer.

Trumpeter Nicholas Payton always seems to deliver the goods, and this recording is no exception. His quintet (Nicholas Payton on trumpet, flugelhorn, harpsichord[!], and celeste; Tim Warfield on soprano and tenor sax; Anthony Wonsey on piano, harpsichord, and celeste; Reuben Rogers on bass; and Adonis Rose on drums) sounds really, really tight, as though they have been playing for a long time as a unit. Payton and Warfield seem to have a special empathy, blending together so tightly that they seem to be reading each other's musical minds--Warfield seeming at times to phrase just like a trumpeter, at other times like a guitarist, weaving his sound together with Payton's lines with impeccable timing.

Ten of the 13 cuts are by Payton, with one each from Rose, Wonsey, and Earth, Wind & Fire's Maurice White with John Lind. Of special note are Payton's "Faith," which makes use of the delicate sound of the harpsichord, not an instrument usually associated with jazz, and his "Somnia," a lyrical piece that is simply gorgeous. The disk closes with the sound of harpsichords once again on the group's cover of EW&F's "Sun Goddess." Sound quality is excellent throughout.
