Christian Scott, more fully known as Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah, has been on a journey of reconnection to his native Indian and African ancestry in his personal and professional music life. And he’s been sure to include his listeners in on every step along the way. In addition to the work of reconnection, he’s also slowly but surely been trying to expand definitions of jazz music as a whole while not totally discarding the roots of the genre. Incorporating 808s and tempo changes more in line with hip-hop than jazz on Stretch Music was a risk but, one that paid off for him! Scott has continued this progression in later releases but, to understand where he’s going, you need to know where his latest efforts come from. As he reconnects to himself and his ancestors, so you should reconnect with the nexus of a wave of sound jazz has yet to figure out but cannot do without, stemming from this album.
