.Kendrick Scott at Hammer Theatre Center

Holding court over his kit, drummer and composer Kendrick Scott proves that percussion is about so much more than keeping time. On his 2016 composition, “Philando,” the Houston-born musician improvises over an ambient drone and a recording of the Philando Castile shooting, heightening the emotional narration of Castile’s girlfriend Diamond Reynolds with swelling cymbals, rumbling toms and popping snares. Scott will perform with his band Oracle alongside guitarist Mike Moreno, pianist Taylor Eigsti and bassist Brandon Owens. The concert launches a new Hammer Theatre Center-San Jose Jazz collaboration, the Black Cab Jazz series.
