Christian Scott: Levitt Pavilion, Pasadena

Christian Scott has several different voices.

The first led me from the parking garage to the theater of the Levitt Pavilion – the voice of his trumpet, whispery and clear, from that peculiar trumpet with the bell slightly angled upwards, reminiscent of that of Dizzy Gillespie’s. Proudly bearing some thick gold necklace that he later mentions he bought in Thailand, custom-made trumpet gripped tightly in hand, Scott played everything from a high-speed, angsty Klu Klux Police Department to a sweeter, more emotional Katrina’s Eyes.
