Tonight’s show features new music from New Orleans trumpeter Christian Scott whose latest CD has been produced by Blue Note icon Rudy van Gelder. Scott is clearly fascinated by the jazz musicians who “in the 60s were completely intent on using their music to change things.” The recording is certainly in the Blue Note tradition – crystal clear separation, tonal clarity and an organic soundscape – even if the music is contemporary in style.
We’ll also play a penultimate track from our featured album, Weather Report’s seminal Mysterious Traveller.
