Ninety Miles (aka David Sanchez, Stefon Harris and Christian Scott) have a new album out now exclusively on iTunes!! 'Ninety Miles Live At Cubadisco' was recorded May 18, 2010 at Cubadisco, one of the biggest music festivals in Cuba, at Teatro Amadeo Roldán in Havana, with the help of some highly talented Cuban musicians -- pianists Harold López-Nussa and Rember Duharte, each leading their own quartets. This seven-song live set further explores the chemistry of Ninety Miles and takes their virtuosity to another level as musicians from different cultures converse in a common language that transcends words. Check out a video from the album below the jump and go cop your copy today on iTunes!!

Christian Scott - "Jihad Joe" and "Pyrrhic Victory of aTunde Adjuah" Live (Video)

For some reason, I was late to finding Christian Scott's YouTube page until now. Lately, he's been recording some of the performances from his current European tour. The Flip cam (RIP, Flip Video) recordings are good quality for such a handheld device and considering these videos are from Scott himself, they capture a certain intimacy that your standard holding a cell phone up at a show just doesn't seem to grasp. These are great videos to watch when you're not completely exhausting the current one week NPR stream of Christian aTunde Adjuah and you're waiting for the album to get here next week now that you've preordered it.

Christian Scott's 'Christian aTunde Adjuah' Streaming at NPR

First off, for those not in the know, Christian Scott is one of the standard bearers for jazz right now. His albums can consistently be described as “jazz and...”, cementing this new era of fusion in which we find ourselves. So of course NPR is going to be streaming his latest offering, Christian aTunde Adjuah, before its July 31st release. Hopefully those of you with the means will give a hard listen and decide for yourselves if it’s worth a more consistent listening. And if it’s worth patronizing NPR a bit more than you already do.

Christian Scott - 'Christian aTunde Adjuah' (EPK)

It's easy to describe Christian Scott as being deep. There's always an intricate meaning behind his work, song and album alike, over the years and he seems to get deeper as time goes by. In the two years since his quintet album, Yesterday You Said Tomorrow, he's only burrowed further to see how deep he can go. Thus with his upcoming double album for Concord Jazz, Christian aTunde Adjuah, Scott delves into the completion of his name, New Orleans culture-- new and old, social justice, and all the weighty issues of the day that still involve the heavy grooving and hot fire that Scott on trumpet, Matt Stevens on guitar, Kris Funn on bass, Lawrence Fields on piano, and Jamire Williams on drums are known to bring.

Hey, remember when the Christian Scott Quintet played The Checkout Live back in November, featuring new material from Scott's upcoming triple release on Concord dropping later this year? That was pretty cool. From that session, here's video of the band playing "Spy Boy".
