A Big Sound From Way Down Yonder
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I'd never heard Nicholas Payton play before this album came out. Listen to Whoopin' Blues and you will be hooked. He has a wonderfully Fat Sound, played with verve and energy, that is such a welcome alternative to Wynton's lyrically pure but increasingly dry style. The "Saints" is mercifully non-corny, in fact Payton has resisted the temptation to turn this into a trad-jazz museum. Sure, the songs are old standards mainly, but they sound great. The trumpet blows hard, sax and keyboards are well in sync. Last year, I saw Payton play at the Vanguard, most of it from this album -- stunning, stunning, stunning."
The title says it all...

"The word "Gumbo" tells us that this CD is a collection of traditional tunes from New Orleans. The word "Nouveau" tells us that these tunes have been modernized. This CD is beautifully done, everything from the arrangements to their execution. Payton brings new life to some great old tunes."
Great Sound

"Payton gives a fresh interpretation of some traditional numbers. His Saints is an all time favorite of mine. I bought this album after hearing Payton's Place and believe it to be every bit as good. He is up there with Roy Hardgrove, Terence Blanchard and the Master Wynton on the list of great modern trumpeters."
