I bought this music because I ran into its reviews on Amazon and decide to give it a try not knowing anything else about Christian Scott. For the record, what people wrote was the clincher not their ratings. The first thing I did was rip the CDs to my computer's music stash then gave a listen. Good stuff. I'm going to call the style mostly world music, not soft jazz as many other reviewers have. In fact there are many hints of Don Cherry when he's fooling around with Ed Blackwell. That's very high praise from me!
There's enough variety in this two CD set to convince me that Scott is not a one trick pony, an awful epithet to hang on a jazz man. (Consider drummer Ginger Baker for example, a world music sort when he's trying his hand at jazz. I like him but he's dreadfully repetitive.) There is also a hint of creativity in addition to variety so my interest was held throughout the 23 tracks. I'm sure that I will spend time relistening to some pretty terrific music.
I recommend the CDs to you. If you are more interested in modern than (semi-)classical jazz you will like it even more than I do and I really like it.
To anyone shopping for a first-rate Christian Scott album, I highly recommend Stretch Music.
