The super-talented Asheville, NC-based Jonathan Scales Fourchestra was invited by Hype Mag for a video session while Suwannee Springfest this year, and they recorded the incredibly funky “TNFJ” which will be on the band’s forthcoming follow-up to Character Farm and Other Stories – an album which landed at number 5 on this site’s Best of 2011 list. 

If this track is indicative of the material that will be on the new record, it shows the Fourchestra growing musically, and they do so with an effortless and kind of playful charm – the composition allows each member of the band to really blow on lengthy solos. (Of course, it helps that each member is accomplished in their own right.)
