• FIJM Interview: Christian Scott

    July 3, 2008. Posted by Joshua Jackson.

    McCoy Tyner and Christian Scott

    This photo was taken by Rob Hayes from the Berklee College of Music. It's from today's rehearsal of the McCoy Tyner Big Band (aka Berklee College Jazz Orchestra) with guest soloist Christian Scott. Scott is performing with Tyner tonight, and with his own band tomorrow evening at the Salle de Gesu. It's been ten years since Michael Bourne saw a 14 year old Christian Scott performing with his uncle Donald Harrison at the New Showcase Lounge in New Orleans. What a difference a decade makes.

    Listen to the interview with Christian Scott.
