We’ve been on the Jonathan Scales tip for some time now, and we have witnessed his truly remarkable ascendence in the music world. While he’s not the only one who has been a pioneer of the steel pan in a Jazz context, Jonathan persistently brings diverse and complex compositions to life while connecting with some of the top musicians of the day. His new album, Pillar, brings his path into full focus as he is joined by fierce young guns MonoNeon, Mason Guidry, and E’Lon Jordan Dunlap as well as seasoned greats Victor Wootten, Oteil Burbridge, Shaun Martin, Weedie Braimah, Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah, Jeff Coffin, and his hero Bela Fleck. The presence of these great musicians speaks volumes about the man and his music. This is history in the making, all brought together by a vision, a mission, and a whole lot of hard work. Dig in here for the podcast that explains it all.
