Performer's Website

While rooted in the Bay Area scene, Scott Amendola has woven a dense and far-reaching web of bandstand relationships that tie him to influential artists in jazz, blues, rock and new music. A potent creative catalyst, he’s become the nexus for a community of musicians stretching from Los Angeles and Seattle to Chicago and New York. His closest musical associates include guitarists Jeff Parker, Nels Cline and Charlie Hunter, Hammond B-3 Organist Wil Blades, violinist Jenny Scheinman, saxophonist Larry Ochs, and clarinetist Ben Goldberg, players who have each forged a singular path within and beyond the realm of jazz. He currently leads or co-leads the Scott Amendola Band and Plays Monk. As a sideman, Amendola has performed and recorded with a vast, stylistically varied roster of artists, including Bill Frisell, John Zorn, Dave Liebman, Wadada Leo Smith, Madeleine Peyroux, Jacky Terrasson, Shweta Jhaveri, Kelly Joe Phelps, Carla Bozulich, Robin Holcomb, Gyan Riley, Johnny Griffin, Pat Martino, etc.
