You'll never be able to see Picasso paint or Ella scat but you can see Kendrick Scott drum. Well, maybe "drum" is too modest a word for the endlessly inventive activity Scott engages in, creating an astonishing variety of sounds and rhythms from behind his kit. There are solid reasons why The Washington Post called this Houston native "a true virtuoso" and The New York Times named him a "Drummer Whose Time is Now." Experience them all firsthand when Kendrick Scott's Oracle ensemble plays the Da Camera of Houston series. The group features fellow Houston native Mike Moreno on guitar, saxophonist John Ellis, pianist Taylor Eigsti and bassist Joe Sanders. Their latest album, Conviction, has received rapturous reviews with JazzTimes declaring it "a wondrous achievement." Share in the wonder live when Kendrick Scott's Oracle plays the Cullen Theater.
