Breaking trail for Brazilian music in North America, and with a 4 star DownBeat review, Dexter Payne Quintet has a unique sound, rooted in Brazilian traditional choro from the early 20th century and expanding through forro and modern choro jazz. The line up features clarinet, accordion, 7-string guitar, piano and percussion/drums. This is real music,  articulate, entertaining, even educational. The Quintet brings it! The music  is not just live… it’s alive! Award winning clarinetist Dexter Payne has performed extensively throughout the US, Canada, Brazil and Latin America, as well as France and Turkey… and DPQ is comprised of his favorite musicians ANYWHERE: Dave Willey, Bill Kopper, Victor Mestas, Raoul Rossiter.

On a 2 1/2 yr musical odyssey , playing with bands and artists from Tijuana to Buenos Aires, Dexter also visited Brazil for 10 months, where he recorded with samba icon Beth Carvalho, and where met the late composer/percussionist, Gaudencio Thiago de Mello. (De Mello, in an earlier life, coached a championship Botafogo soccer team. Among the players was Brazilian legend, Garincha.) It was there he met composer guitarist, Antonio Mello as well as Thiago. Together they recorded an afternoon of instrumentals, mostly penned by Antonio, that would become Payne’s first full album as the lead voice. After four recordings with Thiago de Mello  in NYC, he made Pra Você with the Quintet, a group of amazing players, which got the attention of DownBeat Magazine in a 4 star review..

The latest is “Jazz For All” by the same group, with a magical vocal cameo by Elena Camerin Young. Made possible, in part, by a grant from Pathways to Jazz.
