Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah, has had a whirlwind career that has brought him to the forefronts of jazz, hip-hop, and pop. Rooted in the traditions of his hometown, New Orleans, he is widely recognized as one of the progenitors of “Stretch Music,” a jazz rooted, genre blind musical form that attempts to “stretch” jazz’s rhythmic, melodic and harmonic conventions to encompass as many other musical forms, languages and cultures as possible. Stretch your definition of jazz with his quintet this Valentine’s Day and share the evening with us.
