Jonathan Scales Fourchestra to Release Self-titled Album with Guest Collaborators Victor Wooten and Howard Levy… Jonathan Scales Fourchestra are no strangers to pushing musical genre boundaries and on July 9th, Jonathan Scales Fourchestra will release a self-titled album of cerebral tunes that further blur the lines of jazz.
Each member of Jonathan Scales Fourchestra contributes a distinctive voice to the ensemble. Wielding steel pans, Jonathan Scales incorporates a contemporary jazz attitude into arrangements that tap into funk, rock, jam, and Latin sensibilities. Drummer/ percussionist Phill Bronson grounds the trio’s compositions with an agile, metronome-like sensitivity that has been praised by Victor Wooten, Oteil Burbridge, Chris Thile, and Ellie Mannette. And bassist Cody Wright ties it all together by incorporating a hybrid fusion picking style and creating deeper undertones of connection between drums and steel pans.
Guest contributors on Jonathan Scales Fourchestra include Grammy winners Victor Wooten and Howard Levy (Béla Fleck and the Flecktones), fiddle virtuoso Casey Driessen, and members of the Michael Bublé Band.
Don’t miss Jonathan Scales Fourchestra as they take their unparalleled show on the road with stops throughout the Southeast and Northeast. A full schedule is below.
