About

Christian Scott, also known as Christian aTunde Adjuah (born March 31, 1983, in New Orleans, Louisiana) is a two-time Edison Award-winning, Grammy nominated jazz trumpeter, composer, and producer. Scott's Grammy nominated international recording debut, Rewind That, was called "arguably the most remarkable premiere the genre has seen in the last decade" by Billboard Magazine, earning Christian two prominent features on their cover and inclusion in their list of "10 New Faces to Watch" in 2006.

Since 2002 Christian has released seven critically acclaimed studio recordings and two live albums. According to NPR, "Christian Scott Ushers in New Era of Jazz." He has been heralded by JazzTimes Magazine as "the Architect of a new commercially viable fusion" and "Jazz's young style God." Scott is known for developing the harmonic convention known as the "forecasting cell" and for his use of an un-voiced tone in his playing, emphasizing breath over vibration at the mouthpiece, widely referred to as his "whisper technique." Scott is also widely recognized as one of the progenitors of "Stretch Music," a jazz rooted, genre blind musical form that attemps to "stretch" jazz's rhythmic, melodic and harmonic conventions to emcompass as many other musical forms, languages and cultures as possible.
