Jazz: The Modern Resurgence
A multi-award winner and ferociously talented musician, Jason Rebello has been at the forefront of the international music scene for the last 20 years. His extraordinary ability is highlighted by the fact that he was already an established performer by the age of 21, being described by Jazz FM as “[one of] the most gifted and fluent pianists to emerge in Britain [today]…” and by 1993, at the age of 24, already had three highly successful albums under his belt. And as well as promoting his own groove/crossover music he also found time to work with the likes of Wayne Shorter, Gary Burton, Branford Marsalis, 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 six years before moving to the band of guitar legend Jeff Beck, with whom he still performs. A combination of remarkable technique and musical adaptability has enabled Jason to work with many artists across the musical spectrum including the likes of Peter Gabriel, Phil Collins, Joss Stone and Manu Katche. In 2013 he released his first solo album in 13 years, "Anything But Look", that received universal critical acclaim, while his 2016 album, “Held” on Edition Records was nominated for a British Jazz Award. Tonight Jason will be appearing with his brilliant trio, featuring Tim Thornton-bass and Ernesto Simpson-drums.
