7:00 pm – Scott Amendola Band: Nels Cline, Jeff Parker, Jenny Scheinman, John Shifflett
Monday, February 20, 2017 @ 7:00 PM
While rooted in the San Francisco Bay Area scene, drummer Scott Amendola has become the nexus for a disparate community of musicians stretching from Los Angeles and Seattle to Chicago and New York. After many years as a sideman collaborating with the likes of John Zorn and Charlie Hunter—and currently Wilco guitarist Nels Cline—Amendola took on a new role in 1998 as an outlet to realize himself as a composer and bandleader. Whatever the context, Amendola possesses a gift of twisting musical genres in unexpected directions—from groove-oriented to ballads to totally free—through composed pieces or sketches. The band’s 2014 genre-obliterating album Macroscope (Mack Avenue) was critically hailed, and features special guests Cyro Baptista, Josh Jones, Zeena Parkins, and Yuka Honda. Amendola’s stellar group includes guitarists’ Nels Cline and Jeff Parker, violinist Jenny Scheinman and bassist John Shifflett.
