You’ve likely heard us mention Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah before and you’re likely to hear us mention him again. We dig the energy and passion he puts in every single note as well as the lyricism and intensity you can find in all his compositions. Here’s your chance to watch a full set by the now established trumpeter performed last July at the Jazz des Cinq Continents Festival in Marseille, France. This performance features one of the formations aTunde Adjuah has been experimenting with, namely Braxton Cook on alto and Elena Pinderhughes on flute backed up by Lawrence Fields on ivory, Kris Funn on upright and Corey Fonville on drums. Video courtesy of Arte expires May 26th. Enjoy!

Harlem tomorrow night for New Year's Eve has got a hot ticket with trumpeter Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah and his quintet performing live for two sets at Ginny's Supper Club. Scott's new quintet featuring the ever-present Kris Funn on bass, Matthew Stevens on guitar, Lawrence Fields on keys, Braxton Cook on saxophone, and Corey Fonville on drums are playing two sold out shows at what's certainly the party to be at when it's suddenly 2015, but if you couldn't swing the triple-digit ticket, or you so happen to live in the rest of the country and are anxious to hear what this new group sounds like, you can stream the 7:30pm EST set for $5. There'll be a three camera setup and details are pending about possibly keeping the stream after. Have a party before the party and get hip to where these guys are going. Big things are happening in 2015 with Christian Scott and you're not going to want to miss a moment of it.

Christian Scott at North Sea Jazz Club (Video)

Last night I was doing my routine YouTube check to see if there are any new videos of my favorite Nextbop artists. I found a cool Thundercat solo clip, as well as a few short clips of Ambrose Akinmusire. Those were great, but still kind of short (I have this thing where I don’t really like a clip unless it’s the entire thing) and the quality was, well, typical YouTube quality. I did, however, hit the jackpot when doing a search for new stuff from Christian Scott. I found a full set of the Christian Scott Quintet at the North Sea Jazz Club recorded a couple weeks ago on November 10th. Not only was it six songs, but the quality was awesome. So for all you out there who don’t have a way to go hear Christian’s prowess and versatility, here it is. Enjoy.
