Stretch Music

Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah at The Jazz Kitchen

This past weekend I checked out an awesome performance by trumpeter Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah. He's pioneering a new subgenre of jazz that he calls Stretch Music. It's a style that absorbs musical language from as many cultures and genres as possible. During the show Christian said he seeks to remove the lines that separate music into multiple genres so they all become one. It's a very interesting concept and made for a great performance. Check it out in the video below and let me know what you think!
