Jason Rebello

The 1980's saw a massive boom in British Jazz, producing some extraordinary home grown talent. Fresh, sharp, witty and vital, the classically trained pianist known for his crisp suits and clean-cut good looks, Jason Rebello was part of that scene. At just 21, his fluency and stylistic range was spotted by the great American saxophonist and composer Wayne Shorter, who took on the job of producing his debut album, A Clearer View which topped the JFM chart for five months.

Performer, teacher and currently part of Sting's regular live and studio band, Stuart Nicholson, author of Jazz:The Modern Resurgence describes this talented professional in glowing terms:

"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."

As well as working with guitar genius Jeff Beck, for the last three years, recording a Cd, DVD and composing several tunes for it, Jason has worked alongside Madeline Peyroux, Peter Gabriel and Phil Collins.

"...No one has ever doubted that Rebello is possessed of a great pianistic gift - His great technical strengths, delicacy of touch, fluency of execution, a burnished, pellucid tone had been easily and naturally harnessed in the service of a lyrical immediately attractive melody imbued with an affecting, faintly melancholic earnestness"
Chris Parker, 'The Times' January 1998

The Cooper Hall Steinway and our sweet acoustic couldn't be put to better use than to explore British Jazz at it's best and support the work of our local hospice, Dorothy House.
