Jason Rebello

Piano, UK

Jason Rebello was voted Most Promising Newcomer of the Year for 1988 in Wire magazine and then picked up several major Jazz Awards including the prestigious Pat Smythe award and The Perrier British Jazz Awards. Apart from leading his own trio, he has appeared in the past with notable artistes such as Bud Shank, Wayne Shorter, Gary Burton, Branford Marsalis, Tommy Smith, Jean Toussaint, Desree, Mica Paris, Carleen Anderson and Omar as well as promoting his own band. He also performed several classical concerts, appearing with the Nice Symphony Orchestra and the Halle Orchestra in 1995.

Jason was asked by Sting to replace Kenny Kirkland in his band after his untimely death in 1998. Jason appeared on his Grammy-winning Brand New Day CD and spent two years on a sell-out world tour. On the night of September 11, 2001, Jason was part of the band that recorded the live DVD and CD All this Time at Sting’s home in Tuscany. In 2003 Jason recorded Sting’s DVD and CD Sacred Love, followed by an 18-month tour which ended with a Tsunami Benefit concert in Perth, Australia.

Jason has been working more recently with guitarist Jeff Beck, as well as various projects involving production and string arranging.
