American jazz trumpeter Chief Adjuah (formerly Christian Scott) brings "stretch music" to the Wisconsin Union Theater.

Chief Adjuah (formerly known as Christian Scott) is a 2022 Doris Duke Artist in the jazz category, a two-time Edison Award-winner, and six-time Grammy Award-nominated musician, composer, and producer. Adjuah is the progenitor of “stretch music,” a jazz-rooted, genre-blind musical form that attempts to “stretch” jazz’s rhythmic, melodic, and harmonic conventions to encompass multiple styles, languages, and cultures. His collaborators have included Prince, Radiohead’s Thom Yorke, McCoy Tyner, Marcus Miller, Eddie Palmieri, Yasiin Bey (Mos Def), Talib Kweli as well as poet and musician Saul Williams.

This event is part of the annual Jazz Series.
