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.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
