In October 2007, WBGO recorded a studio session with the Nicholas Payton Quintet. The band had just finished a week-long run at Dizzy's Club Coca Cola, and they had just recorded the music for Payton's debut on Nonesuch Records, Into the Blue. The record hit stores this week. Check out the studio session on NPR Music. It posted earlier today. Funny how that works....Timing is everything.
