Album Review

Live at Newport finds trumpeter Christian Scott leading his ensemble through a performance at the JVC Jazz Festival in Newport, RI on August 9, 2008. Showcasing the same group that recorded Scott's critically lauded 2007 sophomore album, Anthem, Live at Newport does feature Scott branching out on some new material. Just coming into his own as jazz musician, Scott is nonetheless a talented and deft improviser and his knack for creating brooding, emotionally engaged music brings to mind a mix of '60s Miles Davis and the heady art rock of Radiohead. It doesn't hurt that his backing ensemble includes such forward-thinking artists as pianist Aaron Parks and guitarist Matt Stevens, who imbue Scott's compositions with an atmospheric and cerebral tension. While most of the music here leans toward the dramatic slow burn jazz of Scott's Anthem, cuts such as the buoyant post-bop of "James Crow Jr., Esq." and the angular "Rumor" do break up some of the heavy vibe. That said, part of Scott's talent is his ability to sustain such epic drama throughout a whole album and in that sense, Live at Newport crackles with an earnest, youthful energy.

Customer Reviews


This young titan is the future of music and this performance shows his depth as a musical powerhouse beyond his years!

Impeccable As As Always

His artistry cannot be denied, and this is no exception. See him live and re-live it with this one. Christian's music is amazing, and he's humble as well. Buy it!


Muzik77 you're a hater! this man is one of the only cats from is generation to actually go out on a limb and make the music he hears and instead of applauding his efforts you choose to talk s#%t. you call this dude arrogant have you ever read any of his interviews, anything. I mean the first song is about one of his best friends getting murdered (COME ON) this cat is as real as jazz musicians get! PLUS anyone who can read can see that your review page is littered with 1 star reviews of the most successful trumpeters. SCOTT, HARGROVE, BOTTI and even MARSALIS your obviously a struggling trumpeter who takes out his frustration on review pages instead of on the trumpet. my advice GO PRACTICE!

Born in New Orleans, Christian Scott received his first trumpet at age 12 as a gift from his mother and grandmother. As Scott's uncle was modern jazz saxophonist Donald Harrison, it was no surprise that Scott soon became very proficient on the trumpet; so good, in fact, that Harrison began having him play at his gigs. Following in his uncle's footsteps, Scott enrolled at the prestigious New Orleans Center for the Creative Arts and then at the Berklee School of Music in Boston, where he received a...
