After graduating from the New Orleans Centre for Creative Arts (NOCCA) in 2001, Christian received a full scholarship to Berklee College of Music, where he earned a degree thirty months later. Since 2002 Christian has released seven critically acclaimed studio recordings and two live albums. According to NPR, "Christian Scott ushers in new era of jazz.” He has been heralded by JazzTimes magazine as "the Architect of a new commercially viable fusion" and "Jazz's young style God.”
