This is the future of not just jazz, not just music, but of the world. Christian Scott's debut record, Rewind That, proved his jazz chops and understanding of history as well as providing a beautiful escape from the regurgitated simplicity that runs through music today. Even with so much to follow, the ever looming sophmore slump curse was completely blown away with Anthem, his second record on Concord Jazz. The scorching opening piano on Litany Against Fear, leads way to the trumpet that soars, the rock channeling drums and electric guitar, and the beaty of the melody. The record builds and builds and a little over halway through culminates in the symphony of emotion called 'The Uprising'. "Much like "Rewind That's" 'Like This,' soon to be a jazz standard for a new generation."The dream inspired 'Katrina's Eyes' does a wonderful job following, and the record just goes on and on. The final track, the title track, brings the words inspired by the whole album together with socially conscious, attacking lyrics by guest Brother J. Mr Scott and his band have delivered a masterpiece reaction to the state of the world, especially drawing from the experiences of this Berklee school grad's native New Orleans. Keep an eye on Christian Scott, I recommend this genre busting record to fans of all music and art. The future is here.
