New Orleans’s talent celebrates 100 years of jazz through a heavenly and transgressive trilogy, The Centennial Trilogy. The young trumpet player has become in a few years the emblematic figure of a jazzmen’s generation capable of shaking up the genre’s conventions, of challenging it to new horizons and to a new audience. One record after the other, he even seems more and more determined to rewrite the rules of jazz with hybridization, avant-garde and explorations. In this year, celebrating the Jazz centennial, history has provided Scott with an ideal counterpoint to tradition.
