Jonathan Scales was originally a saxophonist, he took up the steel drums in 2002 when he was 18.

In a field pioneered by Andy Narell but filled by few others, Scales has quickly become one of the top steel drummers in jazz, leading the Jonathan Scales Fourchestra (which has recorded four albums) in addition to leading three other recordings of his own.

On his LiveStream of June 8, 2020, the music does not start until the seven-minute mark but it is worth the wait as Scales enters with a burst of creative energy, leading a trio with bass guitar and drums through a set of inventive and rhythmically exciting originals that really display his impressive virtuosity.
