Being alto player Donald Harrison's nephew raises high expectations. But the 22-year-old trumpeter Christian Scott from New Orleans has already proven that jazz is flowing through his veins. Not long ago he finished his (stepped-up) studies at the renowned Berklee College of Music. Scott, who received some technical advice from the legendary trumpeter Clarke Terry, already made his CD debut last year. On Rewind That he introduces himself - in the vanguard of a new generation of jazz cats - with fresh and hip fusion jazz in which r&b, hip-hop and bebop influences can be heard.
His distinctive trumpet sound has been remarkable from the very start. It took him two years to create a warm, somewhat hoarse sound that from Scott's point of view is close to the sound of the human voice. Another remarkable fact is that the young trumpeter at once succeeded in grabbing a Grammy nomination for his catchy electronic jazz.
