Christian Scott's new CD

Trumpeter Christian Scott's new CD is dedicated to his hometown New Orleans, which was so heavily wrecked by Hurricane Katrina, as Christian Broecking reports in the Berliner Zeitung . When he moves around New Orleans today he would gladly see his national government in the dock, because it carries on a war about oil while international relief organizations have to come to the aid of the people in his own country. When he moved to New York six years ago, he realized that New Orleans always had been a problematic city, even before the catastrophe. He can understand that people decide not to return. New Orleans always was more dangerous than other American cities; Katrina only made this more apparent.
