We continue our series on jazz with a look at a new generation of players who love the music, even though it doesn't sell big.

Jazz trumpter Nicholas Payton and drummer Kendrick Scott give us their take on why jazz is still a music of the people.

Payton's latest release is called Into the Blue; Scott's CD is titled The Source.
