Sonic Trance by Nicholas Payton
Released: Aug 2003
Label: Warner Bros.
Like many of his young jazz contemporaries of late, trumpeter Nicholas Payton balances 1970s fusion/funk with subtle swells of hip-hop. This album lives up to its title, with a smoky, commercial vibe underpinning exploratory soloing and risk-taking. Far from being a sellout, Sonic Trance is a bold, eccentric success.
