We are delighted to have secured the amazingly talented jazz pianist, Jason Rebello, who will be performing with his Trio in the intimate surroundings of the Maidment Auditorium.
Jason has toured with some of the very finest musicians including a six-year stint playing with Sting, when he performed on tour and recorded three albums with the legendary artist. During these years he also worked with Jeff Beck, Chaka Khan, Des’ree, Mica Paris, Phil Collins and Peter Gabriel.
In 2013 Rebello decided that after twelve years as a touring session musician he would re-establish himself as a solo jazz artist. Jason will be joined by the talented Troy Miller on drums and Karl Rasheed-Abel on Bass.
“Rebello rekindles the kind of Herbie Hancock-inspired jazz-fusion and crossover soul-funk of his early 1990s albums - and he does so with real panache. Sexy neo-soul, jazz, funk, Latin grooves and the sweeter end of jazz-fusion combine in a joyous cocktail of broad stylistic - and commercial - appeal. Rebello proves that music can be entertainingandsophisticated on a delightful recording that marks the pianist/composer’s triumphant return to the spotlight.”
