ANFTD #85: Nicholas Payton

Nicholas Payton created a 70 minute piece for the online Festival of New Trumpet Music 2020. Nick sat down with Dave Douglas, via Zoom, for a wide ranging conversation about music making, trumpet playing, family, referencing heroes, the influence of geography on music, and more. The music in this episode was drawn from Nick’s piece entitled ‘US,’ was created alongside looper and beat maker Sasha Masakowski. You can watch the whole program, including video of the performance, at the FONT Music website.
