Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah is a jazz trumpeter who’s more than willing to let the booming thud of a Roland 808 bass punctuate a soaring trumpet solo. On Ruler Rebel, his most recent record and first in a trilogy of albums celebrating the centennial of recorded jazz music, Scott embraces the history of jazz as well as the tradition of Southern hip-hop, from the current sounds of Atlanta trap producers like Metro Boomin, to peak Mannie Fresh bounce, and even Neptunes/Timbaland–style grooves. Scott’s interest in continuing the jazz tradition of engaging and expanding on the sounds of popular music isn’t just a way of getting kids into jazz, but also getting jazzheads to respect and pay attention to what the kids have to say.
