The NPR jazz blog, A Blog Supreme, has a great piece on New Orleans native Christian Scott and his influence on the show HBO's Treme. From the post: "His life story partially inspired the character Delmond Lambreaux, a jazz trumpeter who has left New Orleans to pursue a career in New York. In fact, in episode one of season two, the character Delmond and the real Scott appeared on screen together, 'performing' in New York City." So meta, it's scary.
Check out the piece for a preview of Scott's new album Christian aTunde Adjuah, which drops July 31.
