Yesterday You Said Tomorrow
(Concord Records)
When you hear trumpeter Christian Scott, you’re hearing a young musician who has one foot planted in the history of jazz and the other in the infinite possibilities of this elastic genre. Yesterday You Said Tomorrow is a continuation of Scott’s blending of the two sounds to create something distinctly his own. Incorporating rock guitar voicings and various effects, Scott’s music is truly jazz in a new context. The project includes a remake of Thom Yorke’s “The Eraser”, but primary features Scott’s own compositions, including a few titles related to events and issues of recent vintage such as the passage of Proposition 8 in California. Recorded mixed and mastered by the famed Rudy Van Gelder, Scott is joined by Matthew Stevens on guitar, Milton Fletcher on piano, Jamire Williams on drums and Kris Funn on bass.
