Stream "How Deep is the Ocean (How High is the Sky)" By Doc Cheatham & Nicholas Payton
Among Mr. Ernie Elly’s favorite work to date are the songs he recorded with trumpeter and bandleader Doc Cheatham on Cheatham’s Grammy-winning 1997 collaborative album with Nicholas Payton, entitled "Doc Cheatham & Nicholas Payton". “Doc was a 88 or 89 years old when I met him, a gentleman, a top-notch musician,” Elly recalls. “Even at that age, he was still playing better than most."
