And now we move into a few treasures I found at She Said Boom! on College Street…
The Racy Lacy Anniversary Series, Part 10 (CD)
You know I always cheer for the trumpets. I’ve liked Payton since I first heard him on his duet record with Doc Cheatham (that one cooks).
And so does this one. Payton’s tone is sweet as honey and, while technically perfect, he still plays with a ton of the soul that’s in his New Orleans blood.
Add Roy Hargrove, Wynton Marsalis and Joshua Redman, original tunes as well as covers, and this one is a sweet swingin’ winner!
