Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah Announces New Live Album AXIOM

on August 21, 2020, 1:38pm

Jazz maestro Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah has announced the release of a new live album called AXIOM.

Due out on August 28th, the forthcoming collection captures Adjuah’s final pre-pandemic concert at New York City’s famed Blue Note Jazz Club in March 2020.  Coming in support of his masterful 2019 album, Ancestral Recall, the performance saw Adjuah joined on-stage by a septet featuring flautist Elena Pinderhughes, saxophonist Alex Han, djembefola Weedie Braimah, pianist Lawrence Fields, bassist Kris Funn, and drummer Corey Fonville.

“There’ a difference between hearing and listening,” says Adjuah in a statement. “The intention to understand is present in listening. When you listen to our band, what you are hearing is the sound of listening.”

A special deluxe edition of AXIOM will be available through Bandcamp come August 28th. A vinyl release will follow in October.
