Jonathan Scales Fourchestra
Steel pan jazz fusion artistic complexities for the modern ear.
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. 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) Guest collaborators include Grammy winning masters Victor Wooten and Howard Levy (Béla Fleck and the Flecktones) and is fully orchestrated with horns and strings.
Fat Box plays a unique blend of Rock, Funk, Blues, and Jazz. They occasionally venture into the avant-garde but never lose sight of the groove. Their music features distinct, soulful vocals, fiery improvisations, and songs that don't conform to predictable formulas. Fat Box is best seen and heard live.
