Scott Amendola And The SticklerPhonics

Scott Amendola’s newest Modern Micro Brass Band… Groove, Jazz, Funk, and more!

Show:
Friday, February 17, 9:00 pm – 11:00 pm

Scott Amendola, the drummer, composer and bandleader who’s been a creative force on the Bay Area jazz scene (and far beyond) for the past three decades, knows all about the power of subtraction. His new stripped-down trio SticklerPhonics brings together long-time collaborators Raffi Garabedian on tenor saxophone and trombonist Danny Lubin-Laden, NewYork-seasoned improvisers who’ve worked together since their formative years in the vaunted Berkeley High Jazz Band, circa 2003.

With all three players contributing original compositions, SticklerPhonics is a volatile combo that can draw on a vast continuum of jazz practices, from traditional jazz polyphony and ambient soundscapes to funk and free jazz.

The trio has plunged into the unmediated terrain that opens up in the absence of the usual guidelines,“a situation where there’s no bass and no chords,” Amendola said. “The sound is ever evolving.We’re really settling in, but there’s also the feeling like there are places to go. We’ve been adding my electronics and Danny bringing in a little looper. We’re just getting started.”

SticklerPhonics are:

  • Raffi Garabedian: tenor saxophone
  • Danny Lubin-Laden: trombone
  • Scott Amendola: drums/percussion/electronics

This show will be held inside Smiley’s.
