Christian Scott, also known as Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah (born March 31, 1983, in New Orleans, Louisiana) is a two-time Edison Award winning (2010 and 2012) and Grammy Award nominated trumpeter, composer, producer and music executive. Christian’s Grammy nominated international recording debut, Rewind That was called “arguably the most remarkable premiere the genre has seen in the last decade” by Billboard Magazine, earning Christian two prominent features on their cover and inclusion in their list of “Ones to Watch in 2006.”
In June 2015, Christian established a partnership between his newly formed Stretch Music label and the lauded Ropeadope Music family. In the Fall of 2015, Christian's debut release on Stretch Music/Ropeadope, titled Stretch Music, will be released along with the first interactive Stretch Music App offering for this generation of young improvisors. The recording and the app are set to be deeply impactful statements of the new genre.
Christian is the nephew of jazz innovator and legendary sax man, Donald Harrison, Jr. He began his musical tutelage under the direction of his uncle at the age of thirteen. After graduating from the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts (NOCCA) in 2001, Christian received a full scholarship to Berklee College of Music, where he earned a degree thirty months later.
