Christian Scott

1983 -

Origin: United States

Main instrument: Trumpet

Genres: Electronica, Jazz

New Orleans native Christian Scott was only 12 when he received his first trumpet, but it wasn't long until his uncle, saxophonist Donald Harrison, noticed his talent and invited him to play onstage and record with him. The young musician went on to study at the New Orleans Center for the Creative Arts and later at Boston's Berklee College of Music. The year 2002 saw the release of his debut self-titled album, followed by Rewind That four years later, blending rock, R&B and jazz styles. Personally affected by Hurricane Katrina, he followed with the release of Anthem in 2007. Always in demand as a session musician, Scott has collaborated with Prince, Marcus Miller, Mos Def and many more. His recent discography includes Yesterday You Said Tomorrow (2010), Christian aTunde Adjuah (2012), Ninety Miles with Stefon Harris and David Sanchez, and Stretch Music (2015).
