As you may have noticed, it is not my first review about Christian Scott.You can check out my previous articles by clicking on the link below:
Humble and gifted musician with refreshing musical ideas taking music to places it's never been before ? Please welcome Christian Scott ! More than two hours of loud, rocked-up and passionate music that speaks directly to everybody's heart ? Please welcome Christian Scott !
As I am writing this few sentences, I realize that it is very difficult to put words on feelings. Christian's ability to play with light and shadow finds a direct echoes with Matthew Stevens' electric styles and color on guitar and Kriss Funn's grooving support on bass.
FYI - compared to his last appearance last February in Paris, Jamire Williams and Milton Fletcher have been replaced for this european tour (I do not remember their names, but the pianist did well for his "first gig" as mentionned by Christian himself who called him the "baby" of the band).
Before you look at pictures taken at New Morning last monday, I suggest you have a look at christianscott.tv, launched a few months ago. It is the best way to discover his music and what he stands for. He is an adventurous banleader, and an exciting new voice on the jazz scene with plenty of important things to say. I pick up for you three videos !
