Christian Scott Live at Jazz à Vienne Séquence Archives 2017


Christian Scott is the trumpeter expanding jazz music at the frontier, working the great African-American genre into something more reflective of international, improvised music: African drums, Indian Raga, Caribbean grooves … all this is present in the form he has dubbed “stretch music.” Another emphasis of his sound is to expose the rich melodic content within rhythms. While Western music is often thought of as melody-driven, the music stemming from Africa has its own claim on melody that is embedded within transcendent rhythms. If ever there was an ambassador for this musical venture it is Chief Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah (he was made a chief of the Afro New-Orlenian tribes, known as the Black Indians): knowledgeable, charismatic and full of life, he is a musician on a tireless journey of expansion.
