Christian Scott: Performing Songs From The Centennial Trilogy | JAZZ NIGHT IN AMERICA


♪ CHRISTIAN SCOTT: At a very young age I decided that I wanted to play music but that the intention behind why I was playing music was to try and figure out the best way to, like, heal my community. ♪ All of that sort of started with me going to William Frantz Elementary School, which is the first desegregated school in this country. It was desegregated by a little girl at the time named Ruby Bridges. ♪ I walked into those buildings and could still feel that energy was very palpable. On some levels there was a want for you to be in that space, and on other levels there wasn’t. ♪ Like all spaces that were desegregated, in New Orleans there was a lot of what we call “white flight,” so a lot of whites that had the ability to be able to leave left. And because of a very topical thing, you know race, uh, they viewed each other as sort of like these antagonizing forces. They were like nemesis to each other. That never made sense to me even as a child I can see it’s like yo, like all of these people are enduring the same things and really if you’re paying close attention they are the same people. ♪ The only space that I could see as a young person where people in that rung were getting along was when music was playing. And so musically, I am mixing current traditional Korean music with a harmonic type that comes from an Indian raga, and a song form style that comes from a Polish folk song with the fervor of the Delta blues and a rhythm from the Saramaccan and French Guiana and these sort of places. ♪ If I can show the marriage between their cultural expression, then I’m showing the marriage between their cultures and these people, because this is the idea that I hold close to my heart which is that all people can get along together and be together. ♪ [applause] [applause] SCOTT: So, [taps mic] Oh, this was right, OK. [laughs] I’m like looking at it like [inaudible] Um, This is for, um, All of the, um, The, the beautiful women that nurtured me, uh, that brought me up that showed me an incredible amount of love and resilientness and hope and beauty. It’s for my mother, who is here somewhere, [applause] My aunts and my grandmother [inaudible] [applause] We, we’re going to dedicate this one to you guys. I think you guys are in the, it looks like maybe the second row back there, is that right? Where you all at? OK, OK, alright. [applause]
So we’re going to play this for you all, I love you all. This one is called, “Diaspora.” [applause]

    Il y a chez Samora Pinderhugues (15:50)quelque chose de proprement divin. Comme ses doigts suspendus hésitants pour mieux mordre la note au-dessus du clavier – espérant l’occasion de saisir sur le fil une pure force mélodique – soutenu par la trame invisible d’un rythme suspendu comme les doigts au dessus du clavier. Premier émerveillement – cette concentration absolue sur l’unique objet digne d’attention – la musique au bout des doigts et qui pourtant vient des tripes – et le recueillement de sa chère sœur, elle aussi éprise et productrice de pure poésie, et la méditation splendide de ses amis d’union (evidemment, quand tous se joignent à Samora pour honorer West or thé West’ ils sont saisis d’une inspiration qui proprement dépasse l’entendement parce que provenant du cœur – ce troisième œil dont parlent les soufis – animes par la puissançe déployée devant leur chair ébahi par ce divin Samora – détaché du reste des hommes par la grâce de son anormalité). Le jazz – ou la musique d’improvisation – propose non pas seulement des mélodies et des rythmes, mais – plus profondément – inscrit dans la chair même des amateurs qui le font vivre – un genre de vie radicalement nouveau – articulé sur un.ode de communication qui dépasse toute les modalités habituelles de ce que les hommes sont capables de se dire – et une manière aussi de s’exprimer sans tricher ni flatter sans ruser ni détourner le dit du cœur qui le profère – un mode supérieur donc de la communication que l’on pourrait nommer communion. Et si le jazz constituait la seule voie possible pour renaître – mourir au vieil homme que nous sommes – se rendre légers, légers et non plus pesants comme de simples hommes – comme les doigts suspendus au-dessus du clavier. Ah, s’il n’y avait pas la musique, pour nous démontrer empiriquement plutôt que sur le mode de l’incantation idéaliste, qu’une autre vie est possible – atteinte un instant le temps d’un solo le temps simplement d’un instant d’inspiration qui nous fait sortir de l’être – autre vie qui est le vraie vie – et qui ne peut être vécue (voila bien le miracle de la communion des joueurs de jazz – si l’on me passe l’expression qui est bien laide) qu’ensemble, soutenu par la puissance d’une amitié qui est l’expérience pure du partage de la douce sensation d’exister et l’investissement de la chair de l’être hors de l’être, le temps – l’instant d’un bref séjour dans l’ailleurs – l’instant de l’envol comme les doigts de Samora suspendus au dessus du clavier…

    In a hundred years time when people watch this video it will have long been recognized that Christian Scott was in a league of his own and in the grand scheme of things outshone and outplayed Miles Davis. And people will wonder why Samora Pinderhughes never played like he does here on his own releases.
