Friday, February 1: Scorpion Decides @ The Nash

Recorded live at downtown bar the Lost Leaf, The Desert Will Prevail [Vol.1], by propulsive, jittery jazz fusion of quartet The Scorpion Decides, is relentless. Funky bass clicks by Jerome Salazar juxtapose against tight -- often aggressive work -- by drummer Nathan Hubbard; the echoing space keyboards of Branson Nejame bubble and pulse under taut runs of woodwind melodies from Keith Kelly, and occasionally all four lock into a unified front, like on their cover of Miles Davis' "Black Satin."

It's a remarkable slice of jazz/funk, and tonight the quartet takes to downtown jazz club The Nash for a free -- in price and musical expression -- gig. -- Jason P. Woodbury
