The New Orleans-born, fashion-forward trumpeter Christian Scott celebrates his 30th birthday with his trumpet Katrina, a custom-built instrument featuring a bell that pointed skyward in the style of Dizzy Gillespie's iconic horn. Beyond Dizzy, Scott jumps across a range of styles and sounds, channeling everything from hip-hop to On the Corner-style funk and African rhythms. His most recent album, Christian aTunde Adjuah, represents a step towards artistic self-creation that firmly establishes him as one of the new young lions of jazz.
