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!

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….
