Christian Scott - A Star Is Born

>NEW RELEASE: Trumpeter Christian Scott - Yesterday You Said Tomorrow

I told yall to stay tuned for the new album by Christian Scott, and now it's been released. This album is right on time and is one of the few albums that I have heard thus far in 2010 that actually is bold enough to address some of the most pressing issues facing our country today. Featuring song titles like; Angola, LA & The 13th Amendment, Jenacide (The Inevitable Rise and Fall Of The Bloodless Revolution), American't, and K.K.P.D. clearly Christian Scott is a jazz player, who doesn't exactly have his head in the clouds. If you dig Jazz, I STRONGLY advise you to check out this new album. And if you don't like Jazz, maybe it's about time that you learned??? Some people think that this brotha is the natural sucessor to Miles Davis (you take a listen and let me know?)

Nokia Marquee




















We will have more coverage of Christian Scott here on Soul-Patrol, as he rolls out his new album; "Yesterday You Said Tomorrow" and supports it with a tour. I got to see him perform live recently in NYC, as he opened for Al Jarreau a few weeks ago at the Nokia Theatre. Brothaman was off the chain. Maybe this is a sign that along with the country's economy, perhaps REAL JAZZ is on it's way back after 15 years in SMOOTH JAZZ HELL????

During the course of the show, Christian Scott took the time to explain to the audience the signifigance of each song. He is one of just a handfull of artists who are actually using their art to address some of the pressing issues of today. At the end of the show, Chistian thanked the audience for coming out and supporting REAL JAZZ. Then he said that he would be out in the lobby to sign copies of his new album "Yesterday You Said Tomorrow".

>Christian Scott in the Nokia LobbyOf course Christian Scott isn't a new artist, nor is he new to Soul-Patrol. A few years ago, in 2006 I reviewed his album outstanding album called "Rewind That." And of course Christian Scott was a part of the out of this world, the once & future world musical aggregation of a few years ago called "Global Noize" which was named by Soul-Patrol as the best album release of 2008.

Of course I went out into the lobby, and saw that Christian Scott was being mobbed by a pretty big crown of people. I started to approach him, but then I thought better than to do so. So I just observed the scene and snapped a few pictures. After I left, as I was walking thru Times Square, and eventually back to the PATH station so I could return to New Jersey, I thought to myself about how lucky I was to be a fan of a 26 year old jazz superstar on the rise.

I'm going to get the chance to observe Christian Scott as he evolves into the leadership role within the Jazz community that he seems destined for. Is he going to be like Miles Davis? Is he going to be like Dizzy Gillespie? Wynton Marsalis? Freddie Hubbard? Or will he do something completely different? Only time will tell, all I know is that 26 year old Christian Scott is going to evolve in a different direction than where the PTB in Jazz are going. And I have a strong suspicion that his direction is one that unlike the PTB in Jazz, will be embraced by a younger generation that has absolutely no use whatsoever for the abomination known as Smooth Jazz.

Please take note that we will be announcing all of Chistain Scott's tour dates here on the Soul-Patrol Times via email and also on our website.

PRESS RELEASE: Grammy-nominated Trumpeter Christian Scott Releases: "Yesterday You Said Tomorrow" on Concord Jazz

>NEW RELEASE: Trumpeter Christian Scott - Yesterday You Said Tomorrow The 10-track album was engineered by legendary Rudy Van Gelder and recorded at the famed Van Gelder Studio

On March 30, 2010 star trumpeter Christian Scott released Yesterday You Said Tomorrow, his highly anticipated, all-new 10-song collection. The album was recorded at the renowned Van Gelder Studio in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey where legendary Rudy Van Gelder engineered the work. Van Gelder, who is known as one of the greatest recording engineers in jazz history for his work with John Coltrane, Miles Davis and Herbie Hancock among others, says about the new album, "This is one of the best things I have done in a long, long time." Yesterday You Said Tomorrow was co-produced by Scott and Chris Dunn and marks the young trumpeter's fourth Concord Jazz release.

Born in New Orleans in 1983, Scott has always been acutely aware of the legacy of jazz and its role within the broader context of 20th century history. Regarding the new album, Scott says, "I wanted to create a musical backdrop that referenced everything I liked about the music from the '60s - Miles Davis' second quintet, Coltrane's quartet, Mingus' band - coupled with music made by people like Bob Dylan and Jimi Hendrix. The music from that era just had more depth, whether it was jazz or rock or folk or whatever. The political and social climate at the time was much heavier, and there were a few musicians who weren't afraid to reference that climate in their work. The ones who did that - and at the same time captivated people in a way that referenced their own humanity - were the ones who ended up lasting the longest."

Yesterday You Said Tomorrow references a saying that Scott's grandfather would use to emphasize the importance of recognizing the work at hand and making the most of the available time to complete it. Aided by guitarist Matthew Stevens, pianist Milton Fletcher, Jr., bassist Kristopher Keith Funn and drummer Jamire Williams, Scott addresses the issues head on, regardless of how uncomfortable the subject matter may be. He opens the set with "K.K.P.D.," a track full of dark harmonies and tense, competing polyrhythms. The title stands for "Ku Klux Police Department," a reference to what Scott calls the "phenomenally dark and evil" attitude held by some of the local police toward African American citizens of New Orleans when he was growing up - and the similar dynamic that persists there and in other cities to this day.

Scott wipes away some of the darker shades in "The Eraser," the melodic second track penned by singer-songwriter Thom Yorke, co-founder and frontman of Radiohead ("The Eraser" is the title track to Yorke's 2006 solo debut). The aptly titled piece resets the tone of the overall recording, says Scott. "With that song, we're erasing the issue that was raised in the previous song, and then the album starts," he says. "Those first two songs are very much a part of the album, but they're there to establish an environment where you're willing to listen to whatever else we have to say, because you've been opened up to the validity of the original argument."

Since his Concord debut, Rewind That, Scott has received significant accolades. He was quickly tapped as one of the faces to watch by Billboard, received a Grammy nomination for Rewind That and named one of Ebony's "30 Young Leaders Under 30." His style, sensibility and musical talent prove his appeal to both the hip-hop community and jazz purists, and he has performed with the likes of Prince, Mos Def, DJ Muggs, Marcus Miller and Glen Ballard (Aerosmith, Michael Jackson, Dave Matthews). This past year Scott topped the Downbeat 2009 Critic's Poll for Trumpeter of the Year, and he has appeared alongside George Clooney in the film Leatherheads as well as in the critically acclaimed Jonathan Demme film Rachel Getting Married starring Anne Hathaway.
