Impulse at 50, Christian Scott, Roney's residency
Ron Scott | 10/26/2011, 6:20 p.m.
"It came from a lot of different things. Jazz trumpeter and elder statesman Clark Terry told me about the technique Clifford Brown used to get an airy sound when he played," stated Scott. "I wanted my sound to be different than any other. Miles Davis and Dizzy Gillespie and others made their mark on their generation because their sound was unique."
This performance is part of the Uptown Nights at Harlem Stage series, which last season featured the sold-out Fats Waller Dance Party with Jason Moran and Meshell Ndegeocello.
Tickets are $25 and are available at www.harlemstage.org or by calling (212) 281-9240, ext. 19 or 20.
