In this interview clip taped backstage at the 2014 Newport Jazz Festival, drummer and bandleader Kendrick Scott talks about his more recent album.
Kendrick Scott’s Conviction is a finely shaped and paced album that flows from start to end. Scott and his band Oracle (bassist Joe Sanders, pianist Taylor Eigsti, guitarist Mike Moreno, and saxophonist Jon Ellis) impress on this set of intriguing covers and originals. Liberty or Death has some nice bass clarinet from Ellis, and Be Water -which includes a recording of martial arts master Bruce Lee speaking-finds the band sounding particularly fluid. The album closes quietly with a solo Eigsti performing Memory of Enchantment, a ballad by the Dutch pianist and composer Michael Bortslap. Conviction Kendrick Scott Oracle.
