Jason Rebello - a classically trained pianist known for his crisp suits and good looks was, at just 21, head hunted by the great American saxophonist and composer Wayne Shorter.
Jason has toured with notable artistes such as Wayne Shorter, Gary Burton, Branford Marsalis, Tommy Smith, Jean Toussaint, Desree, Mica Paris, Carleen Anderson and Omar as well as promoting his own bands. He has also performed classical concerts, appearing with the Nice Symphony Orchestra and the Halle Orchestra.
As well as working with Sting and guitar genius Jeff Beck, in recent times, Jason has worked with Madeline Peyreux and Peter Gabriel.
Born in the Caribbean, sax legend Jean Toussaint grew up in New York, and studied with friends Greg Osby, Branford Marsalis and Jeff Watts. He joined Art Blakey in 1982 and toured and recorded with him for years alongside Mulgrew Miller, Terence Blanchard, Donald Harrison, and Lonnie Plaxico. Since Jean Toussaint left Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers, he hasn't looked back.
