Bebop Spoken There

Jasper Høiby: "These days everybody thinks they know something about everything, and there are so many opinions being aired all over the place that aren't fully formed because there are so many platforms to say anything you want to when you feel like it." - (Jazzwise June 2020)

Dave Rempis:Ten years from now, I can see musicians streaming concerts in real time and charging a minimal amount for people to watch.” - (DownBeat September 2013)

CD Review: Christian Scott Atunde Adjuah Christian Scott

Trumpeter Christian Scott’s latest release is further evidence of his desire to forge his own identity in this twenty first century post Miles era. The double CD package roams  across an expansive contemporary landscape. The opening track Fatima Aisha Rokero 400 possesses a filmic quality viewed through the lens of Scott’s horn. Aperture set wide, the jazz light illuminates the screen. Scott is of the jazz school educated generation secure in technique, respectful of the lineage, determined to explore and develop his sound. Who They Wish I Was is a riposte to those seeking the next Miles clone. It is, therefore, ironic that the trumpet we hear on the track could indeed be that of the Prince of Darkness. Kiel serves as a further example of the Milesian approach but if comparison be drawn perhaps Freddie Hubbard is the one; clear as a bell confidence, standing exposed under the spotlight. Scott happily incorporates contemporary sounds (he has worked with Mos Def and Marcus Miller) and the musicianship is top drawer. Christian Scott’s new CD Christian Scott Atunde Adjuah is released in the UK on Monday (25 June) and the trumpeter tours as the guest of George Benson starting on Thursday (28 June) in London at the Royal Albert Hall. 
The CD launch of Christian Scott Atunde Adjuah is at London’s Jazz Café on Thursday 5 July.
