Seven Questions: Christian Scott, Trumpeter
Today's subject is Christian Scott.
When we last spoke with the 27 year-old trumpet phenom who has garnered Grammy nominations, countless accolades and numerous appearances on the big screen he was in town performing at the Catalina Jazz Club.
Scott schooled us on his approach to this latest album, taking it back to the 1960s. He also gave us some insight into his relationship with fellow New Orleanian trumpeter Wynton Marsalis, as well as his decision to cover Thom Yorke.
Scott also gives us his take on Treme, the new show created by David Simon about his hometown, as well as his connection to the show.
