RECAP: I failed as a journalist for this entry because the notes that I took on my phone seemed to have vanished into the digital ether. And it’s a shame too because Christian took the time to explain to the audience the origins and influence of virtually each of the songs that he and his band played on this afternoon. But there are several things I can recollect, and here it goes…

I’ve been following Christian’s music since his debut album, “Rewind That”. His latest release “aTunde Adjuah”, when placed side by side to “Rewind That”, shows how much this virtuoso trumpeter has evolved since his start. It’s an adventurous album that blurs genres and is almost too perfect for the times considering how musical genres are bending today.

His set at Music Tastes Good was sonically flawless. His players (the names of whom I would have included if not for me deleting my notes) rode the grooves and themes that Christian called for to perfection. When a player was called upon to step out for a solo, it was like waiting to open a Christmas gift, anticipating the surprise of what’s inside.

While Christian was obviously the featured artist, he showered one of his players with extra attention. Flutist Elena Pinderhughes had flown in that day to join Christian and company on the Music Tastes Good stage, only to fly back home right afterwards so that she could get back to school the next day. Christian made sure that Elena’s time on stage was well spent, and with several impressive step out moments, everybody in the audience could recognize that her abilities were way above the fold. When she played with Christian, the horn and woodwind instruments they breathed life into created a sound that so naturally organic, it was as if they were playing one instrument.
