The innovative Asheville, N.C.-based steel drummer Jonathan Scales brings new vitality to the traditional Caribbean instrument on his sophomore release, picking up where Othello Molineaux left off 20 years ago with Jaco Pastorius. Drummer Jeff Sipe (Aquarium Rescue Unit, Jonas Hellborg) provides the pulse on ambitious fuzoid numbers like “Room of Maps” and “Dish Boy,” the reggae-fied “Baghdad Bomb Rock” and the Middle Eastern-flavored “Yep,” which also features the Flecktones’ Jeff Coffin on soprano sax.
