Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah has been working toward a unified, multicultural idea of improvised music for much of his career. But the New Orleans-raised, Berklee-trained trumpet prodigy could hardly have known that the concept he dubbed stretch music (on a 2015 album of the same name) would be so well timed to jazz’s reemergence into mainstream consciousness

Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah sets the tone for his new project - Ancestral Recall - with this powerful statement. In his mission to unify cultural voices and tear down the sonic and social constructs that separate based on race, class, and culture, Adjuah asserts music has historically been disseminated to people with harmony and melody prioritized over rhythm. The value distinction leads to harmful hierarchal sentiments and perpetuates the view that cultures who prioritize harmony and melody are more nuanced and sophisticated than those who prioritize rhythm. Ancestral Recall is an album that might easily be misunderstood in its own time, but will certainly be seen as a moment in history that marked a momentous shift in musical and perhaps social understanding.

The trumpeter Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah’s new album is Ancestral Recall. His main goal when making Ancestral Recall was to remind listeners that musical traditions centered on rhythm (African and Native American traditions in particular) have as much nuance and complexity as those built primarily around harmony (read: European). Across the album, Mr. Scott lets rhythms from West Africa and the Caribbean and New Orleans - from the pre-Columbian era, the 19th century and today - lace in and out of one another. On Ancestral Recall, Mr. Scott draws from rhythms from West Africa and the Caribbean and New Orleans.

On this sunny afternoon, lying on my back, eyes closed I had my first experience with this album. A pleasant trip like no other this year so far. Already waiting to experience this in the summer or while travelling or in my dark room or wherever but surely it's an experience I'll be having many times this year. Highly recommended! Close your eyes and take a trip with this album.
