Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah


One of the brightest jazz stars to emerge in the last few years is trumpeter Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah. New Orleans native, Scott represents the next generation of Crescent City horn blowers whose lineage started with the legendary King Oliver and Louis Armstrong and has continued with such marquee trumpeters as Wynton Marsalis, Terence Blanchard and Nicholas Payton. Scott, who graduated from Boston's renowned Berklee College of Music, won Edison awards in 2010 and 2012, and was nominated for a Grammy for his 2006 album, "Rewind That." As a leader, he has recorded 14 albums, including two in 2017: "Diaspora" and "The Emancipation Procrastination."
