Jason Raso

Jason Raso continually unwraps little gifts to the listener, as he explores a variety of phrasing and lays down a groove so deep that you need a miner's lamp to find your way.

If it can be played on the bass, Jason Raso is your man: from jazz to blues and on down the line into funk and latin, he's got a handle on it. Jason's five solo albums (”The Bassman Cometh” - 2001, “Live on Planet Bop” - 2002, “Detour” - 2005, “An Abominable Christmas” - 2006, and “Time Pieces” - 2007) showcase his strong melodic sense, extraordinary technique, and innate ability to lay down a groove. Jason's bass influences include Marcus Miller, Stanley Clarke, Charles Mingus and Jaco Pastorius.
