New Orleans trumpeter, composer, producer, and instrument designer Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah makes Stretch Music. Jazz-trained, he stretches and marries the seemingly disparate sounds of Trap Music (Southern hiphop, mixed with techno, dub, and dutch house), traditional West African percussion and New Orleanian Afro-Native American styles. Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah is also intent on using music as political protest to confront social issues. His 2017 record Ruler Rebel, the first in his Centennial Trilogy of releases, marks the very first jazz recordings and he joins us to play his Stretch Music, in-studio. (From the Archives, 2017.)
