**WIL BLADES STARTING 5**

 
No less a jazz organ authority than the legendary Dr. Lonnie Smith has called Wil Blades “the future,” anointing him the heir apparent to “carry on the legend [and] the legacy of the organ, of the B-3.” Blades shoulders that responsibility with nonchalant virtuosity and infectious groove on his second recording, Field Notes (out August 19 from The Royal Potato Family). The album’s nine songs report back from the rich incubator that is the road, with pieces written from snippets recorded at soundchecks, gigs and jam sessions—field recordings of the jazz trio in its natural habitat. On his first full trio outing, Blades is joined by guitarist Jeff Parker (Tortoise, Joey DeFrancesco, Joshua Redman) and drummer Simon Lott (Charlie Hunter, Will Bernard), both musicians who share Blades’ grounding in tradition. Joined by Bay Area's best players, this show is gonna rock!
**SOUL SCRATCH**

SOUL SCRATCH is founded on, and rooted in the principle that through the healing power of music, the world may be made into a joyous loving place where all of humanity can come together under the umbrella of Love and togetherness.  It was founded by JOHNNY CHOU, JOEL GIVERTZ, and ADAM GREENBERG originally coming together in various musical projects throughout their young lives and with the addition of MATT REALE’s horn lines started to make its way into the hearts of all who heard their signature sound.  

 

At the same time this musical exploration was beginning, another journey was underway on the East coast in the form of DALE SPOLLETT developing the vocal skills and feel that would one day add his distinct interpretation to the west coast soul scene.  After moving to Los Angeles,  He saw a SOUL SCRATCH show and was duly impressed with the band's sound, passion, and interpretation of soul music.  

 

As fate would have it, the band was looking for a new lead singer at the time and Spollett answered the call.  Five years and three albums later SOUL SCRATCH has blossomed into one of the mainstay powerhouses in the SoCal Soul scene.  Proud to be releasing their latest work “Pushing Fire” on COLEMINE RECORDS,  SOUL SCRATCH continues to grow and impress new audiences with their musicianship, drive, and passion for the music they make.
