Yesterday You said Tomorrow

I'm out of the current music scene, but every once in a while come across someone that catches me; Christian Scott's one.

I heard him in an interview on NPR a while back, and he impressed me with his intelligence and poise. Then I heard his chops and kept him on my radar. Last Sunday, I saw him on his promo tour for his album. From his "Diz-angled" axe to his incorporation of other styles and influences - such as hip hop - this young man and his band - all young as well - can kill it.

Here's some footage from the gig - non-edited, because I'm lazy like that.
