Christian Scott Plays the Blue Note, 8/24-26; Fall 2012 Lineup Announced


Edison Award winning trumpeter-composer-producer-bandleader Christian Scott stands tall among a handful of talented young jazz artists who are expanding their artistic vision beyond the strict confines of the genre's tradition. Throughout his career, Scott has been an intrepid explorer, from his GRAMMY nominated debut Rewind That to his genre stretching last album Yesterday You Said TomorroW. Scott ups the ante on his compelling new double album, Christian aTunde Adjuah, an inspired and provocative two-CD, 23-track collection that spans a range of beyond-jazz influences as he continues to make strides into uncharted jazz territory. He brings his quintet to the Blue Note in support of the new release. His band features Matthew Stevens (guitar), Jamire Williams(drums), Kriss Funn (bass), and Lawrence Fields (piano).

Scott plays The Blue Note Friday through Sunday, August 24 – 26, 8pm & 10:30pm. The Blue Note is located at 131 West 3rd Street, New York, NY. Tickets are $25 table seats, $15 at the bar. For more information, visit:
