On August 28, 2007, Concord Jazz will release Anthem, the highly anticipated sophomore album from Grammy-nominated trumpeter Christian Scott. Anthem is a powerful collection of 12 tracks teeming indie-rock, neo-soul, hip-hop and jazz and features an appearance by Brother J of X-Clan on the finale track “Anthem (Postdiluvial Adaptation)”. The tracks on the album give us a taste of Christian’s hometown, New Orleans, and the havoc wreaked by Hurricane Katrina, however it also reflects the many changes Scott has gone through since releasing his debut album in 2006. “My life changed completely. So, the compositions on Anthem aren’t just about one thing” he says. “There’s something here for everybody so that everyone can hear their own personal anthems.”

Anthem follows Christian’s critically-acclaimed debut album Rewind That. Released on March 28, 2006, Rewind That received rave reviews from the press. Billboard Magazine named him one of the “Top Ten to Watch in 2006.” The LA Daily News raved, “The major-label debut from this jazz trumpeter has been generating no small amount of hype – and in this case, the accolades are deserved. Rewind That is the real deal.” Journalists weren’t the only people praising Christian. In an interview with Downbeat Magazine Chris Botti said, “Lately I’ve been listening to a lot of CDs by new trumpeters. The only one I like is Christian’s. He’s the new voice in jazz trumpet. I love his point of view. He doesn’t sound like any other young trumpet player.” The Recording Academy took notice and nominated Christian for his first Grammy Award.

The accolades caught the eye of quite a few industry heavyweights. He recently went into the studio with Prince to record a few songs for Prince’s new album and also shared the stage with him at Prince’s venue in Las Vegas, 3121 in the Rio Hotel. Christian recently wrapped a session with Randy Jackson for Randy’s new album coming this fall and performed with Mos Def at his sold out show at New York’s Highline Ballroom. Christian is also taking his talents to the big screen. He was asked to appear and perform in the new Steven Soderbergh film, “Leatherheads” starring George Clooney and Renee Zellweger.
