An AMAZING night featuring the music of two of the countries leading progressive jazz artists - guitarist David Fuze Fiuczynski and multi-instrumentalist, composer, and steel drummer Jonathan Scales.  Playing bass for both bands will be non-other than MonoNeon - the bass player from Prince's band.

David Fuze Fiuczynskis KiF injects Chinese, Indian and Middle Eastern-inflected melodies into the high energy funk rock that lies at the roots of most of Fuzes musical endeavors. On top of this, layers of hip hop and electronica lend an other-worldly quality to the music of KiF, as it moves from swinging, danceable grooves to plaintive meditations over lush, brooding and at times microtonal harmonies. KiF was conceived, quite appropriately, with a gig Fuze performed in Marrakech, in which the Moroccan players mentioned to the American guitar slinger that Jimi Hendrix had visited the country. Fuze imagined Jimi playing hard grooves with Eastern inflected melodies, Dervishes and minarets and spires, desert sands and an audience entranced by the colorful, multi-cultural musical palette could this be the music that Jimi would play today?

Multi-instrumentalist and composer Jonathan Scales is likely the most innovative steel drummer on the planet. His stunning, virtuosic technique is obvious and apparent to any who have seen him perform, but it is his mesmerizing compositions and tasteful, avant-garde improvisation that set him apart from the pack. Jonathan Scales Fourchestra has a fluid line-up, allowing Jonathan to work with a wide range of artists, and in the past few years he has earned the respect of some of the most impressive players across multiple genres. The Fourchestras November 2016 tour of the Southeast is a prime example of this, showcasing bass wizard MonoNeon (Prince), drummer Robert Sput Searight (Snarky Puppy) and percussionist Weedie Braimah (The Nth Power). As with the tours, Scales recordings have also featured special guest performances from the likes of Victor Wooten, Howard Levy, Jeff Coffin and Kofi Burbridge. The Fourchestras self-titled 2013 debut album on Ropeadope Records, fully orchestrated with horns and strings, was a follow-up to the trios three independent releases, and the follow-up Mixtape Symphony (Ropeadope), a dense, half-hour, long-form album inspired by and dedicated to Roy Futureman Wooten peaked at #6 on the iTunes Jazz charts. Bringing the relationship full circle, Jonathan had the opportunity to perform with Bela Fleck and The Flecktones in Richmond, VA in June of 2016 a dream come true for the kid who used to wait outside venues for a chance to talk to his muse. Bela Fleck himself, in considering Scales cover of his composition The Imposter, remarked To say I am impressed would be a gross understatement.

With an ear for myriad global sounds, it only makes sense for Jonathan Scales Fourchestra to expand beyond North America. They toured Central America, the Caribbean, Japan and Europe in the Fall of 2015, and a performance in The Netherlands landed them a spot on the prestigious North Sea Jazz Festival in the Summer of 2016, which anchored another tour of Europe. The Fourchestra has now been chosen by the US Department of State from 300 finalists to serve as musical ambassadors in a 6 week concert tour of China, Taiwan, Hong Kong & Indonesia in early 2017. Jonathan Scales has his eyes on the world, for sure world, meet Jonathan!

joyously inventive Jonathan Scales brings new vitality to the traditional Caribbean instrument, picking up where Othello Molineaux left off 20 years ago with Jaco Pastorius.  Jazz Times

Scales is going to be a major player in rewriting the books on steel pan music outside the box.  When Steel Talks
