Event description

Description

Join one of New Orleans' most innovative musicians, Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah, for his final state-side concert before embarking on his international fall tour.

Doors open at 6pm // Show start at 7:30pm


About Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah: Beginning 100 years after the first jazz recording, Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah announced The Centennial Trilogy: three full length albums that reflect deeply on the history of Jazz. In his words, Christian was ‘trying to create a document that fully acculturated all of the things that grew from the first century of jazz…. To force all of those things into one context as a means of creating a newer, larger context for artists to be able to grow from’.

Christian’s use of the term Stretch Music, which is an album title as well as the name of his newly formed record label, goes well beyond the music. It springs from his childhood realization that music can be a tool to obliterate this notion – that by creating music that blends genres he can inspire people to blend in every way. If one visualizes musicians of different genres, it is easy to see how music has been disseminated to us as hyper racialized, a by product of cultural expression. The goal of the artist is, in every way and every calculated move, driven by this understanding and a desire to create a space that advances the notion that we all belong together. It is never I, it is always WE.

About NPR's Jazz Night in America: Hosted by distinguished bassist, bandleader and composer Christian McBride, Jazz Night in America features storytelling with concert performances. Presented by NPR Music in partnership with WBGO and Jazz At Lincoln Center.
