Brilliance on Every Note

1998 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and recipient of the 2009 prestigious Grammy Trustees Award, ALLEN TOUSSAINT is heralded as a seminal influence on the music of New Orleans. The Rock and Roll Hall of fame describes him as “producer, bandleader, arranger, songwriter, session musician and all-around musical eminence,” and his songs are timeless hits, including “Working in the Coal Mine,” “Mother-in-Law,” “I Like It Like That,” “Right Place Wrong Time” and “Southern Nights.”

Tickets: $35, $30, $25

Called “abundantly gifted” and “a high-wire soloist” by The New York Times, NICHOLAS PAYTON is a composer, a bandleader, and an extraordinarily talented trumpet wizard. His recordings have consistently charted in the Billboard Top 20 Jazz albums, from his first recording, From This Moment (no. 15) to his current release Into the Blue (no. 11).

The combination of the soulful vocals of Walter with the big sound of the Hammond B-3 and the masterful drumming of Russell Batiste Jr. has developed a loyal following of New Orleans Jazz aficionados of The JOE KROWN TRIO. The trio’s 2008 CD, Live at the Maple Leaf, has garnered rave reviews: "A killer collaboration between three of New Orleans greatest players!" Jan Ramsey, offBEAT Magazine
