Jonathan Scales Fourchestra
Jonathan Scales Fourchestra explodes onto stages with an indescribable sound that is as much felt as it is heard: “a Thelonius Monk-like attitude with a Mozart creativity” (Pan on the Net). 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. At center stage, steel pannist and founder Jonathan Scales’ compositional skill mixes with tasteful, avant-garde improvisations to form an unmistakably unique approach to an instrument often associated with cruise ships and tropical music. Driftwood Magazine says: “Scales is to steel pans ….what Béla Fleck is to the banjo—an über innovator.” At stage left, bassist Cody Wright’s gut-wrenching grooves and blistering, soulful melodic lines imbue the trio with a unique intensity that has to be witnessed to be completely understood. Wright is quickly becoming known around the world as a tasteful virtuoso—even bass legendVictor Wooten has called his playing “amazing and musical!”. At stage right, fueling the fire, drummer Chaisaray “Chais” Schenck’s rock-solid grooves and percussive musicality inspire Scales and Wright to push even further.
