Catherine has been on various compilations, including the soundtrack album for the award winning HBO show Boardwalk Empire, NPR’s The New Jazz Divas, Putumayo Presents Rhythm & Blues, and Walkin’ and Swingin’ from the Kennedy Center’s Mary Lou Williams Women in Jazz Festival.
Scott describes what he plays on Christian aTunde Adjuah as “stretch music,” much like he introduced on his 2010 album, Yesterday You Said Tomorrow. Scott likens his “stretch music” to a musical version of a cubist painter’s rendering of an object. In cubism, objects are taken apart, analyzed, and reassembled in an abstracted form that depicts the object from a multitude of perspectives. This gives a more global viewing of what the object is comprised of—a more clear representation of what the object (or in Scott's case, sentiment through sound) is.

Every year for the past 17 years, during the last weekend in July, LA residents and visitors are treated to the preeminent jazz event on the West Coast with The Central Avenue Jazz Festival. It’s free and open to the public – last year, 35,000 attended. The focus, of course, is live music but there are also craft and food booths. I've been meaning to check it out in the past and this I year finally did.
