Out now: Christian Scott's Stretch Music

New Orleans Center for Creative Arts alum Christian Scott ? now bandleader, trumpeter and architect of "stretch music" ? explains the term this way: "we are attempting to stretch ? not replace ? Jazz's rhythmic, melodic and harmonic conventions to encompass as many musical forms/languages/cultures as we can."

Scott doesn't believe one form or genre or sound or way of making any of those things is any better than the next ? and his "stretching" attempts to close those gaps by bridging (then bending, breaking and melting) them into something that resists barriers or description. "Recognizing that all points of view are in fact legitimate, and from there, choosing to learn to communicate in a way where you can reach a consensus," he*explains in his sort of manifesto.?
