Nicholas Payton (born September 26, 1973) is an American trumpet player and t. A Grammy Award winner, he is from New Orleans, Louisiana. The son of bassist and sousaphonist Walter Payton, he took up the trumpet at the age of four and by age nine was sitting in with the Young Tuxedo Brass Band alongside his father.

Nicholas Payton: Dear Louis by C. Andrew Hovan, published on July 1, 2001. That is exactly what Nicholas Payton does with Dear Louis. And things could have come out quite to the contrary considering that on the surface this has all the trappings of a major label concept album. You know how that works, a rotating cast of characters, including some big name vocalists.

Trumpeter Nicholas Payton's heartfelt tribute to the great Louis Armstrong, Dear Louis, might instead be better titled Dear New Orleans. That's because, despite the renditions of various Armstrong-related tunes that make up the disc's 13 tracks, this is more of an extended love letter to the cascade of musical styles that make up the city of Armstrong's (and Payton's) birth. and "Blues in the Night," where he's joined by Dianne Reeves. Any Louis Armstrong tribute, of course, has to feature some fireworks in the trumpet department, and Payton delivers some searing solos on "Tiger Rag," "Tight Like This," and elsewhere that do justice to King Louis while still charting their own path. For all the hoopla over Armstrong after Ken Burns's Jazz, Payton's Dear Louis is far from an attempt to cash in on rote renditions of Armstrong classics.
