Nicholas Payton appeared a few days ago at the Manship Theatre, downtown Baton Rouge. So, we thought it would be a fine idea to feature several selections from his most recent recording, Relaxin' with Nick. This week we start our Carmen McRae centennial celebration, featuring her with Jack McDuff, Phil Upchurch and Red Holloway 'live..'. a sweet session. Then it's our continuing chronological Sonny Rollins salute featuring his work with Max Roach + 4. Along the way, 21st century music from Andy Biskin, Bangkok Lingo from Norway, Daniel Freedman and Steve Khan, as well as Freddie Hubbard, Joe Lovano, Greg Osby, and Jessica Williams. You'll enjoy the ride—2 hours of the finest in jazz.
