RHF BAND: JASON REBELLO, MICK HUTTON, MARTIN FRANCE
Multi Award winning pianist Jason Rebello has been at the forefront of the International Music scene for the last 20 years. An established performer by the time he was 21 this precociously talented player was described by Jazz FM as “[one of] the most gifted and fluent pianist to emerge in Britain [today]..”. By 1993 he already had 3 highly successful albums under his belt, one of them produced by the great Wayne Shorter, and had embarked on an extensive touring schedule of both UK and Europe. As well as promoting his own Groove/Cross-over music he also found time to work with the likes of Wayne Shorter, Gary Burton, Branford Marsallis, Tommy Smith, Desree, Mica Paris, Carleen Anderson and Omar. However, it was in 1998 when he was invited to replace the late Kenny Kirkland in Sting’s band that Jason found International recognition. He toured the World with Sting for more than 6 years before moving, via an introduction from Sting himself, to the band of guitar legend Jeff Beck with whom he still performs. A remarkable technique and ability to musically adapt have enabled Jason to work with many artists across the musical spectrum including the likes of Peter Gabriel, Phil Collins, Pee Wee Ellis, Joss Stone, Madeline Peyroux and Manu Katche.
Mick Hutton has been one of Europe’s finest and most respected jazz bass players for almost 30 years. He has an illustrious CV, including stints with Bill Bruford, John Taylor, Humphrey Lyttleton and Tim Garland as well as being part of First House with Django Bates and Martin France. After being forced to give up playing the acoustic bass for several years due to problems with his hand he is happily playing again, better than ever it has to be said, and it is with great pleasure that we welcome this stalwart of the 606 to the Club with this very special line-up.

“Jason Rebello…inspired” Time Out
606 CLUB INTERVIEW: MARTIN FRANCE
We have all know each other for many years and but never played together as a trio....so we thought it might be a good idea!! For me personally it's an opportunity to play with two very serious, heavyweight musicians who both play at such a high level and between them have so much music making experience.
To make a reservation,
