Mentor and Disciple(Bob Wilber and Nik Payton)

October 28,2017

In September I posted that Bob Wilber was a disciple of Sidney Bechet.

Today I would like to introduce the Bob Wilber’s disciple.

Nik Payton was born in Birmingham, England in 1972.

He started studying piano at the age of 4, and went on to study classical saxophone at 14.

At the age of 15 he became one of the few students of Bob Wilber.

Nik is very proud to continue the legacy of Sidney Bechet and Bob Wilber.

Also He was Artistic Director of Jazz Festival Brasil from 2009-2015.
