Scott talent


NEW Orleans-born jazz trumpeter Christian Scott is a talent worth, well, trumpeting.
Because although the musician has a contemporary, forward-thinking take on the genre throughout Yesterday You Said Tomorrow, his playing has a real timeless quality to it, reminiscent of Birth Of The Cool-era Miles Davis.
His playing has a subdued, breathy feel to it, capable of wandering improvisation as much as tightly running through Thom Yorke's vocal line on a cover of The Eraser.
And the music mimics this feel, all sparse acoustic bass and brushed drums.
It's safe to say that from the first note of Yesterday You Said Tomorrow, this LP made my day.
