Jason Justice

Jason Justice stepped onstage for the first time at the age of 8. After that there was no stopping him from his passion, his path, in a way. That pathway has always led to the stage.

Jason's love of the theatre began in 1973 at Oral Roberts University Department of Broadcasting. In 1977 a saxophone was placed in his hands by his parents, and the whole family braced themselves for the caucophony of honks and squeaks that were destined to come. But “only tunes and clear notes came” as his mother, Janice, recalls. And thanks to a steady diet of 50s and 60s pressings from the Verve catalog, the direction was clear. Or was it?

Because of this love for the theatre, Jason spent the 1980s performing in regional and dinner theatres in Texas and Colorado. His credits include “Perchik” from Fiddler on the Roof, “Nicholas” from Nicholas Nickelby, “Ernst Ludwig” from Cabaret, “Arthur” from Camelot, and “Leading Player” in Pippin. He acted as music director and pit musician for Bernstein's West Side Story and director/music director of Sondheim's Side by Side. But through the over 40 productions Jason participated in, the saxophone has always called to him; in many ways, his true love.

Since 1990, Jason has played in many bands, from Dixieland to African Zouk (as saxophonist with the regionally renown Mondo Bizzaro), R&B (sax and vocals with Diana Castro and the Big Time), to jazz, cumbia to classical. Jason is a student of sound.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
