Christian Scott, also known as Christian aTunde Adjuah, one of the world’s most internationally acclaimed jazz artists has recently released his new album ‘Christian aTunde Adjuah’ (2012) which made it number 1 on iTunes a few weeks ago.
The album artwork itself expresses the vibrancy and stylistic fusions of the music amongst the two CDs.
Included throughout the tracks are his band members; guitarist Matthew Stevens, drummer Jamire Williams, bassist Kris Funn, pianist Lawrence Fields, tenor saxophonist Kenneth Whalum III, alto saxophonist Louis Fouche IIII and trombonist Corey King. The band has been deemed as ‘explosive’ and ‘adventurous’ which are two key qualities any band needs to succeed in their overall sound. This is just one example of the many positive press the album has received.
