In the mid-2000s, a new generation of African-American musicians like singer/pianist Robert Glasper and trumpet player Christian Scott created a sound that fused jazz-rock, soul and hip-hop. In 2007, Christian weaved these various themes into Anthem, an album inspired by the devastation Hurricane Katerina wreaked upon his hometown of New Orleans. This spirit of this beautiful album, and Christian’s mastery of his instrument, goes straight to the heart.

Anthem also served as an introduction to the exciting young musicians who contributed to the sound of the album; Marcus Gilmore, Aaron Parks, Matt Stevens and Jamire Williams are all now Jazz stars in their own right.

In 2011, along with Stefon Harris and David Sanchez, Christian created and directed the album and documentary Ninety Miles, a celebration of the kinship that unites the music of New Orleans and that of Cuba and the Caribbean. This was followed up in 2012 with a remarkable double CD under the name Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah. This album showcased Christian’s deepening commitment to the balance of tradition and modernity, highlighting the links that exist between all popular North American music. It also represented an increasingly political viewpoint.

Christian paid homage to the 100th anniversary of the first Jazz recording with his 2017 The Centennial Trilogy. The third album of the series. The Emancipation Procastination won the Grammy for Best Contemporary Instrumental Album.

This groundbreaking trumpet player refers to his work as ‘stretch music.’ It’s a term he uses to illustrate the work of making rhythms, melodies and harmonies more "elastic," as well as integrating the musical genres of all cultures and current forms of hip-hop or alt-rock.

                                                            Ancestral Call Adjuah's approach offers great anthropological insight in its desire to unearth hidden musical traditions, to demystify tenacious ideas devaluing these roots and to show the synergy that exists between the music of West Africa, Caribbean and First Nations. In short, to account for all cultural practices that make up the American experience. Adjuah's creative mind even touches the reinvention of his instrument. The serine integrates the trumpet, the flugelhorn and the horn, offering a wider register and the ability to obtain a more serious sound.

Quebec Jazz fans will remember Christian Scott performing at Palais Montcalm in 2009, and will not want to miss experiencing this exciting musician again. The Christian Scott aTunde Jazz Ensemble includes nearly 10 musicians including young flautist Elen Pinderhughes, tenor sax Walter Smith III and alto sax Logan Richardson.
