New Orleans trumpeter Christian Scott is in the midst of releasing an ambitious trilogy of albums this year. After the spring’s introductory Ruler Rebel, he returned last month with Diaspora and plans to finish before year’s end with Emancipation Procrastination. His style incorporates modern trap and NOLA bounce with classic jazz approaches; as John Morrison put it in his interview a couple weeks ago, Scott is “reverse-engineering the past ten decades of American popular music, connecting it all back to the roots of the tree, jazz and the blues.”

Christian Scott and his band headlined World Cafe Live this past Sunday, September 10th and you can check out scenes from the evening care of photographer Koof Ibi Umoren.
