Jason Lyon

The Jason Lyon Quartet (pianist Jason Lyon, tenor and alto saxophonist Ian Bailey, drummer Sophie Alloway and bassist Alan Gibson) performs a hard swinging and unconventional repertoire spanning contemporary bop, Latin, funk and township. The group is influenced by modern post-bop artists such as Chick Corea, Michael Brecker, Kenny Garrett and Branford Marsalis.

Jason's classical piano concerto was premiered in Vidin, Bulgaria in September 2010.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
