In this episode I talk with Jonathan Scales, an amazingly talented steel pans player and all around great guy, about building his career and realizing his dreams.
We also talk about the state of jazz music in America and Europe and how Victor Wooten inspired him to write musical novels instead of short stories.
We are debuting two unreleased songs during this episode, as well as a funky bass-driven tune from his last album Mixtape Symphony. At the end of the episode I add a song we recorded together for his first album One Track Mind. As you'll hear, I initially didn't think I could play the song because of its complexity, but he talked me into it.
