This is the first release on Payton’s new imprint, BMF Records, and he’s willing to break out of traditional molds, blending pop, funk and rock into this offering. That original tune that begins the album, “The Backward Step,” moves from tentative exploration into fiery raucous playing, backed by Lenny White’s crashing cymbals and Vincente Archer’s playful bass interjections. —Jon Ross (DownBeat June 2013)
