  • Christian Scott Quintet

Concerts & Gigs

Jazz trumpeter Christian Scott has jazz flowing through his veins. The nephew of alto saxophonist Donald Harrison, Scott started playing live at 13, and at 14 he was accepted into the New Orleans Centre of Creative Arts. A wunderkind indeed.

From there, he received a scholarship to Berklee College of Music in Boston, where he continued to play and study, while also forming an interest in film scoring.

On graduation, he returned to the stage with aplomb, receiving a Grammy nomination for his debut record, Rewind That, and putting in the groundwork for his acceptance into the contemporary hall of fame.

His sound is rooted in jazz, but with an appetite for indie rock and hip hop, he loves to inflect traditional sounds with the best of other genres.

Christian is the writer of many the modern jazz masterpiece, and if you're not already acquainted with his work, here is your chance.
