New CD out!!

My new CD ‘Swinging the Changes’ (Arbors Jazz ARCD 19358) is finally out! It features myself with Bob Wilber and my London quartet. At the moment it is available from Arbors Jazz but will probably be on iTunes and other online stores soon. I’m going to be putting up some tracks on the ‘Recordings’ page of this site soon, so keep an eye open. In the meantime, here is a quote from the album notes by Wynton Marsalis.

Bob Wilber studied and played with New Orleans legend Sidney Bechet and has recorded high-quality jazz for over sixty years. he performs here with his young protogé Nik Payton in the classic tradition of ‘on the bandstand mentorship’ and Nik, in turn, demonstrates his worthiness to receive and represent the rich, glorious legacy of this ever-evolving music. – From the album notes by Wynton Marsalis.
