Biography

An emerging talent on the international jazz scene, New Orleans-born trumpeter Christian Scott’s debut album “Rewind That” was released on Concord in 2005 and received great critical acclaim. 9 of the 11 tracks on “Rewind That” are Scott’s original work (also on the record is Scott’s take on the legendary “So What” and Donald Harrison’s “Paradise Found”).

Scott’s music builds its tonal foundation off of Matt Stevens’ guitar riffs, which could easily find their place in a contemporary rock setting. His rhythm section, consisting of brothers Zaccai (piano/keyboard) and Luques (bass) Curtis and sensational drummer Thomas Pridgen, grooves under each piece. Scott’s horn parts are those of traditional jazz melody, and the solos follow suit in the jazz tradition.

Scott has noted Miles Davis, among his many musical influences, as being the greatest of them all. A listener can hear that sometimes-sparse, calculated note choice Miles used in Christian’s trumpet solos. Scott’s approach to the music is both seasoned and unique, as he incorporates a certain breathing technique to achieve the tone that resounds through his work. Without question, Christian Scott will be an important player in the evolution of jazz.

    xapz Ебать ты прикалываешся, немецкий друг? Мне ещё голову ломать, что бы правильно по-английски написать, да ещё что бы ты понял? Хорошо наверное, но овчинка выделки не стоит, всё равно ты меня в гости не пригласишь.

    fromsoultosoul, you might be able to communicate with most people on this site if you spoke English instead of Russian. I'm listening to the new album and like it very much. But like with all of Christian's releases, it probably takes some time to grow on me.

    The new album is great. The guitar work is really special too. Although, some songs seem off "Anthem" or more intense songs from "Yesterday you Said Tomorrow"...overall it's a new collection. The album art is magnificent, and its really awesome that Scott has redefined his sound, image and purpose as an artist.

    not really a fan of the new album. it's too bloated for me and could use a lot of trimming, but there are some scattered gems.

    The numbers of listeners are extraordinaire! When I started to follow Mr. Scott for more than three years ago, he had 5.000 or so listeners - definitely not over 10.000 so far as I can remember. Now he has practically 30.000 thousand listeners here on Last.fm. For an instrumental artist, that is a lot of listeners.
