Axiom is his third live release and contains a collection of tracks recorded in March 2020 in the New York’s Blue Note Jazz Club during Scott’s final pre-pandemic concert. The album was released to support his previous 2019 album Ancestral Recall. The concert saw Adjuah on trumpet as well as Elena Pinderhughes on flaute, Alex Han on saxophone, Weedie Braimah on djembe, Lawrence Fields on piano, Kris Funn on bass, and Corey Fonville on drums. In a press release Scott explained “Axioms are essentially postulates from which an abstractly defined structure is based, a statement or proposition which is regarded as self-evidently true…Axioms serve as starting points for further reasoning and arguments. It’s difficult to find a more appropriate correlative to jazz and expansive music.” Axiom consists of nine tracks. “Sunrise in Beijing” and “Diaspora” have originally appeared in Stretch Music (2015); “I Own the Night” is taken from the previous album Ancestral Recall (2019). “Guinnevere” is a composition that was originally written by singer-songwriter David Crosby; it is also related to Miles Davis, who interpreted it in his compilation album Circle in the Round (1979).
