Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah To Release 'Stretch Music' Album On Sept. 18th

Trumpeter, composer, bandleader and Edison-award winner Christian Scott dropped the opening track from his forthcoming Stretch Music record (slated to drop on September 18th via Ropeadope) in the form of “Sunrise In Beijing.” Scott’s latest audio release was also accompanied by an interview with music news outlet, Noisey. The chat between Scott and Noisey covered a range of topics from his upcoming record (because duh), his short stay in Los Angeles, and his commitment to helping out up-and-coming musicians. “I fuck with the youth differently than I think a lot of my peers and the older musicians do,” Scott shared during the interview. “Usually you come to my gig and the guest list is not business people or the guy from Amazon. It’s usually these kids. Somebody did it for me—what am I going to close the door? The information was given to me, so now I can give the information to someone else. That’s more why I’m here than to play the trumpet. To pass information on.” A testament to Scott’s sentiment of helping the younger generation can be heard in through Elena Pinderhughes‘s captivating performance in “Sunrise In Beijing.” As a matter of fact, the Stretch Music record actually has the young flutist’s name tied right into it (at least that’s what it looks like on iTunes). While one track doesn’t necessarily define an entire body of work, it’s safe to say that that Scott’s forthcoming record might be one of the best releases in 2015 in any genre — pretty high praise considering the caliber of instant classics that this year has already yielded. Scroll down and listen to “Sunrise In Beijing.” Pre-order Stretch Music on iTunes.
