Nicholas Payton – Bitches

Bitches is a love story that musically chronicles the joys and heartbreak of relationship. A provocative and breakthrough recording on many levels, this is a pop-inspired concept album infused with modern jazz and neo-soul, featuring special guest vocalists Cassandra Wilson, Esperanza Spalding, N dambi, Chinah Blac, and Saunders Sermons!

Grammy Award winner Nicholas Payton plays every instrument, composed all the songs, wrote all the lyrics, produced each track, and sings and plays trumpet throughout this record. This is both good and bad because although it is overall a very fine production, there are places where instrument specialists may have been better suited to the music.  Use Duke for your keyboardist, Marcus or Stanley on Bass, and focus on being Nicholas. Not a knock, because I love the CD, but maybe….
