The Jonathan Scales Fourchestra
Jonathan Scales Fourchestra is an example of musical sincerity.
Weaving together collective and individual influences without compromise, they are
as much themselves as they are a unit—a crucial trait of landmark instrumental
ensembles. Equally captivating is steel pannist and founder Jonathan Scales’
compositional skill as is his tasteful, avant-garde improvisational approach. Driftwood
Magazine says "Scales is to steel pans ….what Béla Fleck
is to the banjo—an über innovator." "Together, the group
explodes onto stages with an indescribable sound that is as much felt as it is heard,
and is said to have "a Thelonius Monk-like attitude with a Mozart creativity
that works." -Pan on the Net
Watch the Jon
Scales Fourchestra mesmerize you HERE!!
Alright boys and girls. You have your assignments.
Get your ass to the bar and check out the best live tunes in town!!
