Trumpeter Christian Scott has emerged as not only a leading trumpeter of his generation but a composer and bandleader as well. The New Orleans native had a hot start with his debut album, Rewind That, earning a GRAMMY® nomination. He’s been a special guest of Radiohead’s Thom Yorke (whose “The Eraser” he covered) and played in bassist-producer Marcus Miller’s ‘80s Miles Davis tribute band. For his fourth studio album, the newly rechristened Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah (inspired by two Ghanaian cities) presents an ambitious double-length offering, with 20 compositions and three interludes. From the spirited “New New Orleans (King Adjuah Stomp)” about his hometown to the reflective “Kiel” about his filmmaker/photographer twin brother to the fiery “Jihad Joe,” Scott and his working quintet tirelessly stretch from jazz's traditional foundations to include many of today’s sounds and rhythms.
Christian Scott is talented AND not a dick
I "found" this band sitting on either side of me on a 8 hour flight this past summer after their European tour. They were clever and funny and wonderfully pleasant flight mates and so I bought their music before hearing it instead of pirating it. Great stuff. They've got a big new fan in me.
I am truly enjoying this album. It's mentally relaxing, which I find to be good for the body and soul. Thank you!
A true Masterpiece
This is a stunningly beautiful, brilliant, audacious, passionate Masterpiece from the first note to the last. World class music by world class musicians, whose collective genius is simply breathtaking.
