Grammy nominated jazz trumpeter Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah, returns with two nights of genre blind music that will Stretch jazz music’s rhythmic, melodic and harmonic conventions to encompass a range of cultural influences from his native New Orleans to West Africa and the Caribbean. Scott aTunde Adjuah is a WaterWorks artist in the second year of a three year residency made possible with a Building Demand for the Arts Implementation grant from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation. 

As part of this season’s Stretch Music Residency, he will honor the rhythmic tradition of his Afro New Orleanian/Black Indian culture. Join us on a sonic journey that creates a bridge to liberation and freedom with some of music’s most daring musicians and improvisers.
