Christian Scott, also known as Christian aTunde Adjuah is a two-time Edison Award winning (2010 and 2012), Grammy Award nominated jazz trumpeter, composer and producer.
Scott is also widely recognized as one of the progenitors of "Stretch Music," a jazz rooted, genre blind musical form that attempts to "stretch" jazz's rhythmic, melodic and harmonic conventions to encompass as many other musical forms, languages and cultures as possible.
Scott is also dedicated to a number of causes that positively impact communities. He gives his time and talents to a number of organizations which garnered him a place in Ebony Magazine's 30 Young Leaders Under 30.
In his new project “Ruler Rebel,” he is taking up a new challenge: uniting the spare, rippling power of trap music (Southern hip-hop known for its austere beats and deep puddles of bass) with a range of parallel inspirations, from Sergio Leone’s spaghetti-western themes to New Orleans funk.
