Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah

Christian Scott, also known as Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah (born 1983, New Orleans, Lousiana) is a trumpeter, composer, producer and musical executive, who has twice won the Edison Prize (2010 & 2012), and has been nominated for a Grammy Award for his debut  album, titled Rewind That. The magazine ‘Billboard’ referred to it as “arguably the most remarkable debut the genre has seen in the last decade” and included him in its list of ‘Top Ten to Watch in 2006’.

He is the grandson of jazz legend Donald Harrison Sr. and began his career at the age of thirteen under the tuition and guidance of his uncle, jazz innovator & saxophonist Donald Harison Jr. Having graduated at the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts in 2011, he received a full scholarship to study at the Berklee School of Music in Boston, and graduated in 2004, some thirty months later.

Since the year 2002, Scott has released seven critically acclaimed studio recordings and two live albums. As NPR (USA’s national radio channel) put it “Christian Scott ushers in a new era of jazz”. He has been heralded by JazzTimes magazine as “the Architect of a new commercially viable fusion” and “Jazz’s young style God”. Scott is known for his use of an un-voiced tone in his playing, emphasizing breath over vibration at the mouthpiece, widely referred to as his ‘whisper technique’, and is also widely recognized as one of the progenitors of “Stretch Music”, a jazz rooted, genre blind musical form attempting to “stretch” jazz rhythmic, melodic and harmonic conventions to encompass as many other musical forms, languages and cultures as possible.

He has worked with McCoy Tyner, Prince, Marcus Miller, Eddie Palmieri, Mos Def (Yasin Bey), Thom Yorke and Solange Knowles, among others.
What’s more, he is the inspiration for the character of Delmond Lambreaux in the HBO series “Treme”.

The artist is also dedicated to a number of causes that positively impact communities,  giving his time and talents to a number of organizations which garnered him a place in Ebony Magazine’s 30 Young Leaders Under 30.
He belongs to his family’s non-profit organization ‘Guardians Institute’, dedicated to cultural retention in underserved areas of New Orleans. Christian has been in the forefront of youth programming and has given private music lessons, and donated books and musical instruments.
