And he does all that with a big smile. This is a man who loves to play music, and it shows. Check Phill's pages right over here, and watch him tear it up in Mississippi right over here.

JSF Streaming now
The upcoming release from the Jonathan Scales Fourchestra is now streaming in its entirety on DeliRadio. Warning - this music is not what it appears to be. Jonathan Scales masters the steel pan in a way that no one before him has done, with the wildly inventive bass musings of one Cody Wright and Phill Bronson's thoughtful style on the box kit. Throw in appearances from Victor Wooten and Jonathan Levy and you have, well, a masterpiece. Get on the steel train right here.

Cody Wright Throws down
Cody Wright, originally a guitar man, brings a wildly inventive style to the bass and makes it sing. The reviews tell the tale..."During one solo, bassist Cody Wright played a few playful bars of The Simpsons’ theme song which caused me to laugh out loud. It managed to show the band’s goofy sense of humor at work. Watching his fingers on the bass is just a sight to see, and I literally spent a great deal of time watching his fingers."-William Helms (The Joy of Violent Movement)
