Episode Summary

EDIT
For well over a decade, trumpeter and composer Christian Scott has been a “fire and brimstone” of sorts in the world of jazz music. Scott’s hunger and passion for the music is quite evident in his last five recordings which include his current “Yesterday You Said Tomorrow,” “Live at Newport,” “Anthem,” “Rewind That,” and his self-titled debut disc “Christian Scott.” Christian is now today musically what Wynton Marsalis and Terence Blanchard were to the early 1980’s or what Nicholas Payton was during the 1990‘s.Those trumpeters including Mr. Scott, have set and raised the bar on how jazz music is perceived as “America’s Original Art-form,” to how they and their contemporaries keep this music as innovative and fresh as this music continues to wane from the corporate and mainstream media. Scott’s rash and bold approach to jazz music as it relates to the music in the past, present, and the future has been why many music fans keep coming to his shows as well as look forward to him making statements with his music. As a child growing up on New Orleans, Christian got the solid foundation of his culture and music via his mother and his uncle, the legendary Donald Harrison, on what his role is as a musician as well as a person of his diverse heritage. He incorporates a musical technique in this playing called the ‘whisper technique.’ It’s when he manipulates and switches up his breathing pattern to produce a sound that is like a human voice. Recently he introduced five new compositions using the ‘harmolodic’ musical concept at The Gatehouse at Harlem Stage here in Harlem, New York. This musical style fuses world music and other contemporary influences that’s shaped Christian’s compositions musically. His quartet features Matthew Stevens on guitar, Lawrence Fields on piano, Kristopher Keith Funn on bass, and Jamire Williammoreless
