JASON REBELLO piano, composer
British pianist Jason Rebello is regarded as one of the most inventive pianists to emerge from the UK since he burst onto the scene in the early 90’s with a run of albums for the BMG label. Jason has worked mainly with electronic keyboards in his own groups (as well as with Sting and Jeff Beck); but now he has decided it’s time to say something on the instrument he loves. In early 2016 Jason will release his debut solo piano album, featuring mostly originals inspired by the people and places that have been important in his career. As Jason explains; ‘Throughout my career I’ve had the opportunity to play in wide-ranging and diverse scenarios, but never had an opportunity to immerse myself fully in the piano. I’ve reached a point now where I feel there is something to say with just a piano and I’m relishing this opportunity to consolidate all my musical experiences on this record’.
‘Held’ is nominated for Best New CD in British Jazz Awards 2016
