amendola vs. blades vs. parker vs. baptista

← Back to timetable


berkeley-based drummer, composer and bandleader scott amendola showcases his longstanding partnership with bay area hammond B-3 organ star wil blades for an evening of greasy grooves and head-spinning musical telepathy, joined for this exclusive run by tortoise guitarist jeff parker and brazilian percussion genius cyro baptista.

it’s hard to overhype the insane musical resumes of these four musicians. individually they have played with an enormous list of artists including herbie hancock, yo-yo ma, trey anastasio, wynton marsalis, medeski martin & wood, carlos santana, sting, tortoise, brian blade, joshua redman, jason moran, charlie hunter, dr. lonnie smith, nels cline, bill frisell, tony furtado, pat martino, david byrne, dr. john, brian eno, melissa etheridge, robert palmer, billy martin, stanton moore, idris muhammad, karl denson, and many more. to say these guys are jazz heavyweights is putting it mildly and we are thrilled to have them perform saturday night in the ballroom!
