STS / Ava Mendoza, Episode 5

Guitarist and composer, Ava Mendoza, is an essential member of the SF Bay Area creative music scene. She is part of a breed, comfortable in a wide variety of situations – playing the yearning rock of Carla Bozulich’s Evangelista, note-y guitar sparring with Nels Cline, or performing a live score to a Buster Keaton silent film with Tune-Yards. Her recent focus has been Unnatural Ways, a jazzy rock(or rock-y jazz?) ensemble with Dominique Leone on keys and Nick Tamburro on drums.

Unnatural Ways is Ava Mendoza’s current project. It started as a duo, with Nick Tamburro on drums, but evolved into a trio when they found the perfect person to fulfill the bass parts on synths, a familiar face  – Dominique Leone.
