Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah: Ancestral Recall

Read "Ancestral Recall" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

It's rare to see Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah's name without some derivation of “architect" affixed to it. It's appropriate. The New Orleans trumpeter and composer—like his peers Kamasi Washington and Ambrose Akinmusire—is part of a wave of jazz musicians determined to keep the genre's momentum moving forward.

Mike Clark & Delbert Bump: Retro Report

Read "Retro Report" reviewed by Kevin Press
