Celebrated British jazz pianist Jason Rebello was labelled a veteran by critics at 19 and over the next decade won most...of the major jazz music awards. Classically trained but inspired by Herbie Hancock, he came to the attention of one of the founders of jazz fusion, Weather Report’s saxophonist Wayne Shorter.
His latest solo piano CD ‘Held‘ on Edition Records won best new CD in the 2016 British Jazz Awards.
Jason continues to teach, lecturing at various schools and music colleges including The Guildhall School of Music and Bath Spa University. He also helped to set up the Jazz Factory at the Wiltshire Music Centre.
“In terms of sheer ability and potential, Jason is probably the finest young jazz musician this country has produced. His playing has great poise and maturity, which is unusual in somebody so young.” Stuart Nicholson, author Jazz: The Modern Resurgence
