In association with Sheffield Jazz

Jason Rebello: piano

Jeremy Stacey  : Drums

Yuri Goloubev : Bass

One of the most inventive jazz pianists to emerge from the UK since he burst onto the scene in the early 90’s,  Jason Rebello’s trio gig at the Crucible Studio was one of Sheffield Jazz’s highlights of their 2017 programme and they couldn’t wait to bring him back, this time with Jeremy Stacey on Drums and Yuri Goloubev on bass.

Jason Rebello was classically trained but, inspired by Herbie Hancock, he first came to the attention of Wayne Shorter in the early 1990s and was signed to BMG records on a three-album deal, becoming one of the leaders of the jazz resurgence of that period, particularly drawing from Jazz Fusion. He produced a further two albums by the end of the decade and toured internationally with his own band before being invited by Sting to record and tour, with whom he played for six years. Jason’s musicianship and adaptability have enabled him to work with artists across the musical spectrum such as Jeff Beck, Peter Gabriel, Phil Collins, Pee Wee Ellis, Joss Stone, Madeline Peyroux, Manu Katche Chaka Khan, Mica Paris and Carleen Anderson.

Jason has often worked with electronic keyboards in his own groups (as well as in his collaborations), but in 2016 he decided it was time to return to the instrument he loves and released his debut solo piano album “Held” which was rated Best Album in the 2016 British Jazz Awards. It is this in this iteration that we are delighted to welcome Jason to Firth Hall and our brand new Steinway Model D Concert Grand.

 

“In terms of sheer ability and potential, Jason is probably the finest young jazz musician this country has produced…” Stuart Nicholson, Jazz: The Modern Resurgence

“Rebello has produced something quite remarkable here with his first solo piano recording, an album of delightful and mesmerising contrasts”4* review of ‘Held’ Roger Farbey, All About Jazz.
