Event description

Description

“Amendola’s music is consistently engaging, both emotionally and intellectually, the product of a fertile and inventive musical imagination.” Los Angeles Times

“If Scott Amendola didn’t exist, the San Francisco music scene would have to invent him.”
Derk Richardson, San Francisco Bay Guardian

Drummer/composer/bandleader Scott Amendola and Hammond B-3 organist Wil Blades conjure various sonic deities in their live shows, which have been generating a buzz around the Bay Area. In performance, Amendola and Blades cover everything from jazz, funk, bebop, to the avant garde, to rock. Recently, Amendola and Blades have joined forces with guitarist Jeff Parker (Tortoise), and tenor saxophonist Skerik (DRKWAV, Garage a Trois, CRACK SABBATH). Masters of improvisation, these four gentlemen take a composed piece of music and bring it to the outer reaches and back. With Scott Amendola (drums/percussion/electronics), Wil Blades (Hammond B3/Clavinet), Jeff Parker (guitar), and Skerik (tenor saxophone), audiences will never hear the same show twice.

For Scott Amendola, the drum kit isn’t so much an instrument as a musical portal. An ambitious composer, savvy bandleader and capaciously creative foil for some of the world’s most inventive musicians, Amendola applies his rhythmic virtuosity to a vast array of settings. His closest musical associates include guitarists Nels Cline, Jeff Parker, Charlie Hunter, Hammond B-3 organist Wil Blades, violinists Regina Carter and Jenny Scheinman, clarinetist Ben Goldberg, players who have each forged a singular path within and beyond the realm of jazz.

Over a career spanning more than three decades, Amendola has forged deep ties across the country, and throughout the world. As a sideman, Amendola has performed and recorded with a vast, stylistically varied roster of artists, including Bill Frisell, John Zorn, Mike Patton, Mondo Cane, John Scofield, Cibo Matto, John Dieterich from Deerhoof, Wadada Leo Smith, Bruce Cockburn, Madeleine Peyroux, Joan Osborne, Jacky Terrasson, Shweta Jhaveri, Phil Lesh, Sex Mob, Kelly Joe Phelps, Larry Klein, Carla Bozulich, Wayne Horvitz, Johnny Griffin, Julian Priester, Sonny Simmons, Pat Martino, Jim Campilongo, Bobby Black, Larry Goldings, Paul McCandless, Rebecca Pidgeon, and the Joe Goode Dance Group.

Doors open at 2:30 PM. Music begins at 3:00 PM. There will be two 45-60 minute sets with a short intermission.
