Biography

When trumpeter Christian Scott was growing up in New Orleans in the late ‘80s and early ‘90s, his grandfather gave him and his brother Kiel extra reading assignments each week as a supplement to their assigned schoolwork. If the young students failed to finish their books within the week, their grandfather would say, "Yesterday you said tomorrow..." It was the older ... Read more in Amazon's Christian Scott Store

As a young trumpeter Christian Scott has always sought to explore the wider possibilities of Jazz, as seen through the development of his work in 'Rewind That' (2006), 'Anthem' (2007) and here, reflecting a wider and deeply personal exploration of his social, cultural and ethnic roots. Having explored and acknowledged his past, Scott has taken the name Christan Atunde Adjuah, a change also reflected on the album cover, where Adjuah can be seen wearing the ceremonial regalia of Afro-Native Americans, known (as he has explained in interview) as, "the black or Mardi Gras Indians". This album is, as he has asserted, "the completion of my name". This willingness to self-define is further reflected in the liner notes accompanying the release, in which Adjuah writes of his unique approach to making music, found within the ideas of a 'Forecasting Cell' and 'stretch music', enshrining a willingness to stretch (not replace) Jazz's rhythmic, melodic and harmonic conventions. This is, under any circumstance, quite a statement of intent, and the question is does the album fulfil the promise?

The album opens with the bold statement of 'Fatima Aisha Rokero 400', with swirling, skittering drums rolls accompanying Adjuah's plaintive and soaring opening, before the music unfolds in a commemoration of a rape committed in Rokero. It is an uneasy listen, challenging, and even more so for being placed at the start of this double album. 'New New Orleans' is a paen to the emergence of New Orleans in the period post Hurricane Katrina, subject matter that Adjuah has previously referenced. 'Who They Wish I Was' will immediately remind listeners of the short lyrical phrasing of Miles Davis, with an insistent melodic motif that falls, in carefully spaced moments, as rhythmic rain.

Too many artists simply go through the motions - even those that are hugely skilled. They don't stretch the boundaries, innovate, explore and challenge themselves and their fans. This guy does. He's a marvellous horn player with a deftly unique touch. The second CD is the better one, but both have sublime moments and I love the distinctly unique sound of creative exploration. What will this instrument do? Where will it take me the player and you the listener? Have a listen and see where you end up! You'll be in a far better place.

Saw this guy supporting George Benson, in Birmingham, recently: and was overawed by his (seemingly effortless) technique and musicality.

Stunningly mature trumpet-work; and wonderful musicianship from everyone backing him. If you love great modern jazz, or just the sound of an instrument being played to its full potential, this will, ahem, blow you away...!

A musician I had not come across previously his music and that of his fellow band members is at times reminiscent of Miles Davis. Most enjoyable

We went to a recent concert and were inspired to buy the cd. Glad we did - Sorry some of the pieces we heard at the concert aren't on this cd, but maybe we'll just have to get another one!
