Video interview with Nicholas Payton on BAM 2/19/2012

Want to know why trumpeter Nicholas Payton is so convinced that the term JAZZ is completely outmoded, and why he suggests BAM – shorthand for Black American Music – is a more ecumenical and honest term for today’s creative music? We interviewed Nicholas on Sunday, February 19, 2012 at the 3rd annual Mid-Atlantic Jazz Festival on that wide-ranging subject hours prior to Nicholas, Terell Stafford, and Brian Lynch lifting the roof off the festival and thoroughly slaying their audience with a killer Trumpet Summit. Here’s our interview, courtesy of good friend Bret Primack, The Jazz Video Guy (check his incredible inventory of videos on his The Jazz Video Guy YouTube channel).
