Jason Raso has a funk heart and a jazz head. They are hard wired together by the 6 strings of his bass guitar, and an innate ability to craft music that will turn you into a bobble head. It’ll make you feel like you’re the coolest cat on the block.
For over 20 years Raso has pursued the groove to such excellence that Exclaim Magazine declares, “Jason Raso’s bass is a full-on orchestra of ground vibrating pleasure.”
Through his 8 albums and countless live performances, from intimate settings to festival stages, Jason and his band have entertained and connected with listeners. His ability as a bandleader allows for some inspired improvisation that takes you on a journey then brings you back, spent, but unharmed. You could focus on his finely honed technique, but it’s the energy and emotion of the tunes that often leads to finger snapping and vigorous toe tapping.
This recording artist, composer, producer and guitar teacher has a long list of accomplishments that just keep growing. He’s a Hartke Canadian Artist Search Winner (2010), has composed and performed music for syndicated radio, is a session player with a capacity for various styles and production and has numerous television and radio performances under his belt.
Jason’s latest album “Man of 40 Faces” features 11 new original compositions. Eight solo performances and three duets with legendary bassist Alain Caron, trombone phenom Wycliffe Gordon and brilliant vibraphonist Francesco Pinetti.
“Bass players will enjoy Raso’s strong command of the instrument, as he flawlessly demonstrates a cross-section of techniques, including chording, tapping and hammering. Man of 40 Faces is a truly melodic collection of originals, from start to finish.” – Jon Liebman (For Bass Players Only)
