Christian Scott



Christian Scott, born March 31, 1983 in New Orleans, Louisiana is a Grammy Award nominated jazz trumpeter, composer and producer. He has been heralded by JazzTimes magazine as "the Architect of a new commercially viable fusion" and "Jazz's young style God. ” He is known for his keen fashion sense and impact on Jazz's recent shift in culture. As NPR stated it, "Christian Scott Ushers in New Era of Jazz. ” The trumpeter is the progenitor of a "whisper technique. " By manipulating his breathing temperature and articulation he can procure a sound unlike the trumpet and more like a whispering human voice. Scott produced and released his major label debut, Rewind That, on March 28, 2006, on Concord Records. Billboard Magazine called the release "arguably the most remarkable premiere the genre has seen in the last decade. ” The magazine highlighted Scott as one of the "10 Faces to Watch in 2006" and featured him on it’s cover twice that year. His critically acclaimed first album earned him the Grammy nomination for Best Contemporary Jazz Album in 2006. Scott has released three solo studio recordings, Christian Scott, Rewind That and Anthem, and one live CD/DVD, Live At Newport (August 9, 2008), which was inspired by Hurricane Katrina's effect on his hometown of New Orleans. Scott's fifth album Yesterday You Said Tomorrow was released through Concord Records on February 1, 2010. Its launch was accompanied by two prestigious dates (February 1 and 2) at world-famous London jazz club Ronnie Scotts. Christian Scott is the nephew of jazz alto saxophonist Donald Harrison Jr.
