Nels Cline Singers drummer Amendola in his own trio with guitarist Jeff Parker and bassist John Shifflett, mixing solid jazz structures with unusual tones from metallic objects & electronics.

Amendola, Scott

Amendola, Scott: Lift (Sazi Records)
Label: Sazi Records    
Released in: USA    

"Scott Amendola is probably best known as the drummer with the Nels Cline Singers, a guitar trio with detailed compositions, high-energy improvisations, and an oft-exhibited ability to shift gears at a moment's notice. On Lift, his first album since 2005's Believe (Cryptogramophone), Amendola debuts his own take on the guitar trio format, with guitarist Jeff Parker and bassist John Shifflett. Most of his compositions follow standard jazz structures built upon mid-tempo grooves, with unique melodies that sit deep in the pocket. Parker's tasteful, well-constructed melodic playing and Shifflett's deep, understated presence are the perfect compliments to Amendola's singular rhythms, which propel the tunes while drawing on unique tones and timbres played on a drum kit complimented by metallic objects and electronic devices."-Sazi Records
